  • Unlike phase one results in December 2017, which showed disappointing results after 12 months, this phase - which lasted 18 months - showed how the drug not only cleared out significant amounts of amyloid plaque (a hallmark of the disease) but also seemed to slow the progression of the disease by 30 percent.

  • What is the amyloid cascade hypothesis? (news-medical.net)
  • The amyloid cascade hypothesis was initially suggested in 1992. (news-medical.net)
  • The fact that Expedition3 couldn't even replicate those hopeful findings from the two previous trials should raise questions about the amyloid hypothesis , says Michael Murphy, a professor at the Sanders-Brown Center on Aging at the University of Kentucky, and the author of an editorial that accompanies the study in the NEJM . (forbes.com)
  • While the results of Expedition3 were not what we had hoped they would be, we believe the amyloid hypothesis should continue to be studied," she said in an e-mailed statement. (forbes.com)
  • The working hypothesis is that the successful structure will incorporate the elements of an electron-donating group on an aromatic ring (A) attached to an aromatic heterocyclic 5/6 ring system (B/C). Eleven candidates will be synthesized and tested by in vitro homogenate displacement binding against radiolabeled ligand for amyloid protein. (sbir.gov)
  • Amyloid PET technology has made it easier for neurologists to diagnose difficult cases of dementia, and also has helped scientists understand how amyloid plaques accumulate during the disease process. (dana.org)
  • The work, published February 12 in the Journal of Neuroscience, suggests that the intrinsic network architecture of the brain may be part of the reason why certain areas accumulate amyloid. (alzforum.org)
  • If you wanted to run a very early AD trial, you could use this staging system to select participants, rather than a global amyloid cut point," Mattsson told Alzforum. (alzforum.org)
  • Amyloid-beta is required for neuronal function, but can aggregate to form amyloid plaques that seem to disrupt brain cells by clogging points of cell-cell contact. (ebi.ac.uk)

  • Researchers now broadly accept that its spreading dysfunction in the brain is more closely connected to the massive loss of neurons underlying dementia, compared to the early, slow buildup of amyloid beta plaques. (dana.org)
  • The researchers then examined longitudinal amyloid scans from the 69 early stage accumulators. (alzforum.org)
  • A lot of elderly people show a high density of plaques on amyloid PET scans but don't develop dementia," says Neil Vasdev of Harvard Medical School. (dana.org)
  • These deposits often recruit various sugars and other components such as Serum Amyloid P component, resulting in complex, and sometimes inhomogeneous structures. (wikipedia.org)
  • A human study combining functional connectivity imaging of the brain with amyloid imaging has added a new twist to the rapidly evolving science of the brain's default mode network. (alzforum.org)
  • These data suggested that CSF-positive people were accumulating amyloid in select brain regions. (alzforum.org)
  • In their initial study, CSF-positive yet whole-brain PET-negative ADNI participants indeed deposited amyloid only in specific regions, including the precuneus and posterior cingulate ( Nov 2017 news ). (alzforum.org)
  • They found six brain regions-the precuneus, posterior and isthmus cingulate, insula, and medial and lateral orbitofrontal cortices-where amyloid load was increasing compared to non-accumulators. (alzforum.org)

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome can be the presenting sign of primary or secondary forms of amyloid, as only minimal deposits are required to impair nerve conduction. (medscape.com)
  • Imaging techniques and biochemical tests are not very helpful in the diagnosis of secondary amyloid goiter and the definitive diagnosis is established based on the histopathologic analysis and histochemical staining techniques. (hindawi.com)
  • Amyloid arthropathy can mimic classic RA but usually lacks the intense distal synovitis and can affect the hips, knees, and shoulders more than peripheral joints. (medscape.com)
