Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy: A heterogeneous group of sporadic or familial disorders characterized by AMYLOID deposits in the walls of small and medium sized blood vessels of CEREBRAL CORTEX and MENINGES. Clinical features include multiple, small lobar CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE; cerebral ischemia (BRAIN ISCHEMIA); and CEREBRAL INFARCTION. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is unrelated to generalized AMYLOIDOSIS. Amyloidogenic peptides in this condition are nearly always the same ones found in ALZHEIMER DISEASE. (from Kumar: Robbins and Cotran: Pathologic Basis of Disease, 7th ed., 2005)Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy, Familial: A familial disorder marked by AMYLOID deposits in the walls of small and medium sized blood vessels of CEREBRAL CORTEX and MENINGES.Amyloid beta-Peptides: Peptides generated from AMYLOID BETA-PEPTIDES PRECURSOR. An amyloid fibrillar form of these peptides is the major component of amyloid plaques found in individuals with Alzheimer's disease and in aged individuals with trisomy 21 (DOWN SYNDROME). The peptide is found predominantly in the nervous system, but there have been reports of its presence in non-neural tissue.Amyloid: A fibrous protein complex that consists of proteins folded into a specific cross beta-pleated sheet structure. This fibrillar structure has been found as an alternative folding pattern for a variety of functional proteins. Deposits of amyloid in the form of AMYLOID PLAQUES are associated with a variety of degenerative diseases. The amyloid structure has also been found in a number of functional proteins that are unrelated to disease.Cerebral Hemorrhage: Bleeding into one or both CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES including the BASAL GANGLIA and the CEREBRAL CORTEX. It is often associated with HYPERTENSION and CRANIOCEREBRAL TRAUMA.Plaque, Amyloid: Accumulations of extracellularly deposited AMYLOID FIBRILS within tissues.Alzheimer Disease: A degenerative disease of the BRAIN characterized by the insidious onset of DEMENTIA. Impairment of MEMORY, judgment, attention span, and problem solving skills are followed by severe APRAXIAS and a global loss of cognitive abilities. The condition primarily occurs after age 60, and is marked pathologically by severe cortical atrophy and the triad of SENILE PLAQUES; NEUROFIBRILLARY TANGLES; and NEUROPIL THREADS. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp1049-57)Amyloidosis: A group of sporadic, familial and/or inherited, degenerative, and infectious disease processes, linked by the common theme of abnormal protein folding and deposition of AMYLOID. As the amyloid deposits enlarge they displace normal tissue structures, causing disruption of function. Various signs and symptoms depend on the location and size of the deposits.Brain: The part of CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM that is contained within the skull (CRANIUM). Arising from the NEURAL TUBE, the embryonic brain is comprised of three major parts including PROSENCEPHALON (the forebrain); MESENCEPHALON (the midbrain); and RHOMBENCEPHALON (the hindbrain). The developed brain consists of CEREBRUM; CEREBELLUM; and other structures in the BRAIN STEM.Vasculitis, Central Nervous System: Inflammation of blood vessels within the central nervous system. Primary vasculitis is usually caused by autoimmune or idiopathic factors, while secondary vasculitis is caused by existing disease process. Clinical manifestations are highly variable but include HEADACHE; SEIZURES; behavioral alterations; INTRACRANIAL HEMORRHAGES; TRANSIENT ISCHEMIC ATTACK; and BRAIN INFARCTION. (From Adams et al., Principles of Neurology, 6th ed, pp856-61)Amyloid beta-Protein Precursor: A single-pass type I membrane protein. It is cleaved by AMYLOID PRECURSOR PROTEIN SECRETASES to produce peptides of varying amino acid lengths. A 39-42 amino acid peptide, AMYLOID BETA-PEPTIDES is a principal component of the extracellular amyloid in SENILE PLAQUES.Cerebral Arteries: The arterial blood vessels supplying the CEREBRUM.Congo Red: An acid dye used in testing for hydrochloric acid in gastric contents. It is also used histologically to test for AMYLOIDOSIS.Cystatins: A homologous group of endogenous CYSTEINE PROTEINASE INHIBITORS. The cystatins inhibit most CYSTEINE ENDOPEPTIDASES such as PAPAIN, and other peptidases which have a sulfhydryl group at the active site.Siderosis: A form of pneumoconiosis resulting from inhalation of iron in the mining dust or welding fumes.Intracranial Hemorrhages: Bleeding within the SKULL, including hemorrhages in the brain and the three membranes of MENINGES. The escape of blood often leads to the formation of HEMATOMA in the cranial epidural, subdural, and subarachnoid spaces.Apolipoprotein E4: A major and the second most common isoform of apolipoprotein E. In humans, Apo E4 differs from APOLIPOPROTEIN E3 at only one residue 112 (cysteine is replaced by arginine), and exhibits a lower resistance to denaturation and greater propensity to form folded intermediates. Apo E4 is a risk factor for ALZHEIMER DISEASE and CARDIOVASCULAR DISEASES.Neurofibrillary Tangles: Abnormal structures located in various parts of the brain and composed of dense arrays of paired helical filaments (neurofilaments and microtubules). These double helical stacks of transverse subunits are twisted into left-handed ribbon-like filaments that likely incorporate the following proteins: (1) the intermediate filaments: medium- and high-molecular-weight neurofilaments; (2) the microtubule-associated proteins map-2 and tau; (3) actin; and (4) UBIQUITINS. As one of the hallmarks of ALZHEIMER DISEASE, the neurofibrillary tangles eventually occupy the whole of the cytoplasm in certain classes of cell in the neocortex, hippocampus, brain stem, and diencephalon. The number of these tangles, as seen in post mortem histology, correlates with the degree of dementia during life. Some studies suggest that tangle antigens leak into the systemic circulation both in the course of normal aging and in cases of Alzheimer disease.Presenilin-1: Integral membrane protein of Golgi and endoplasmic reticulum. Its homodimer is an essential component of the gamma-secretase complex that catalyzes the cleavage of membrane proteins such as NOTCH RECEPTORS and AMYLOID BETA-PEPTIDES precursors. PSEN1 mutations cause early-onset ALZHEIMER DISEASE type 3 that may occur as early as 30 years of age in humans.Cerebral Arterial Diseases: Pathological conditions of intracranial ARTERIES supplying the CEREBRUM. These diseases often are due to abnormalities or pathological processes in the ANTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY; MIDDLE CEREBRAL ARTERY; and POSTERIOR CEREBRAL ARTERY.Apolipoproteins E: A class of protein components which can be found in several lipoproteins including HIGH-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; VERY-LOW-DENSITY LIPOPROTEINS; and CHYLOMICRONS. Synthesized in most organs, Apo E is important in the global transport of lipids and cholesterol throughout the body. Apo E is also a ligand for LDL receptors (RECEPTORS, LDL) that mediates the binding, internalization, and catabolism of lipoprotein particles in cells. There are several allelic isoforms (such as E2, E3, and E4). Deficiency or defects in Apo E are causes of HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE III.Meninges: The three membranes that cover the BRAIN and the SPINAL CORD. They are the dura mater, the arachnoid, and the pia mater.Blood Vessels: Any of the tubular vessels conveying the blood (arteries, arterioles, capillaries, venules, and veins).Cystatin C: An extracellular cystatin subtype that is abundantly expressed in bodily fluids. It may play a role in the inhibition of interstitial CYSTEINE PROTEASES.Cerebrospinal Fluid Proteins: Proteins in the cerebrospinal fluid, normally albumin and globulin present in the ratio of 8 to 1. Increases in protein levels are of diagnostic value in neurological diseases. (Brain and Bannister's Clinical Neurology, 7th ed, p221)Mice, Transgenic: Laboratory mice that have been produced from a genetically manipulated EGG or EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN.Cerebrovascular Disorders: A spectrum of pathological conditions of impaired blood flow in the brain. They can involve vessels (ARTERIES or VEINS) in the CEREBRUM, the CEREBELLUM, and the BRAIN STEM. Major categories include INTRACRANIAL ARTERIOVENOUS MALFORMATIONS; BRAIN ISCHEMIA; CEREBRAL HEMORRHAGE; and others.Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Non-invasive method of demonstrating internal anatomy based on the principle that atomic nuclei in a strong magnetic field absorb pulses of radiofrequency energy and emit them as radiowaves which can be reconstructed into computerized images. The concept includes proton spin tomographic techniques.Dementia: An acquired organic mental disorder with loss of intellectual abilities of sufficient severity to interfere with social or occupational functioning. The dysfunction is multifaceted and involves memory, behavior, personality, judgment, attention, spatial relations, language, abstract thought, and other executive functions. The intellectual decline is usually progressive, and initially spares the level of consciousness.Autopsy: Postmortem examination of the body.Dementia, Vascular: An imprecise term referring to dementia associated with CEREBROVASCULAR DISORDERS, including CEREBRAL INFARCTION (single or multiple), and conditions associated with chronic BRAIN ISCHEMIA. Diffuse, cortical, and subcortical subtypes have been described. (From Gerontol Geriatr 1998 Feb;31(1):36-44)Alkenes: Unsaturated hydrocarbons of the type Cn-H2n, indicated by the suffix -ene. (Grant & Hackh's Chemical Dictionary, 5th ed, p408)Apolipoprotein E2: One of three major isoforms of apolipoprotein E. In humans, Apo E2 differs from APOLIPOPROTEIN E3 at one residue 158 where arginine is replaced by cysteine (R158--C). In contrast to Apo E3, Apo E2 displays extremely low binding affinity for LDL receptors (RECEPTORS, LDL) which mediate the internalization and catabolism of lipoprotein particles in liver cells. ApoE2 allelic homozygosity is associated with HYPERLIPOPROTEINEMIA TYPE III.Peptide Fragments: Partial proteins formed by partial hydrolysis of complete proteins or generated through PROTEIN ENGINEERING techniques.Cerebrovascular Circulation: The circulation of blood through the BLOOD VESSELS of the BRAIN.Serum Amyloid A Protein: An ACUTE PHASE REACTION protein present in low concentrations in normal sera, but found at higher concentrations in sera of older persons and in patients with AMYLOIDOSIS. It is the circulating precusor of amyloid A protein, which is found deposited in AA type AMYLOID FIBRILS.Cerebral Cortex: The thin layer of GRAY MATTER on the surface of the CEREBRAL HEMISPHERES that develops from the TELENCEPHALON and folds into gyri and sulchi. It reaches its highest development in humans and is responsible for intellectual faculties and higher mental functions.Brain Diseases: Pathologic conditions affecting the BRAIN, which is composed of the intracranial components of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM. This includes (but is not limited to) the CEREBRAL CORTEX; intracranial white matter; BASAL GANGLIA; THALAMUS; HYPOTHALAMUS; BRAIN STEM; and CEREBELLUM.Blood-Brain Barrier: Specialized non-fenestrated tightly-joined ENDOTHELIAL CELLS with TIGHT JUNCTIONS that form a transport barrier for certain substances between the cerebral capillaries and the BRAIN tissue.Aging: The gradual irreversible changes in structure and function of an organism that occur as a result of the passage of time.Fatal Outcome: Death resulting from the presence of a disease in an individual, as shown by a single case report or a limited number of patients.

Intracellular accumulation of the amyloidogenic L68Q variant of human cystatin C in NIH/3T3 cells. (1/260)

AIM: To study the cellular transport of L68Q cystatin C, the cystatin variant causing amyloidosis and brain haemorrhage in patients suffering from hereditary cystatin C amyloid angiopathy (HCCAA). METHODS: Expression vectors for wild-type and L68Q cystatin C were constructed and used to transfect mouse NIH/3T3 cells. Stable cell clones were isolated after cotransfection with pSV2neo. Clones expressing human wild-type and L68Q cystatin C were compared with respect to secreted cystatin C by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA), and for intracellular cystatin C by western blotting and immunofluorescence cytochemistry. Colocalisation studies in cells were performed by double staining with antibodies against human cystatin C and marker proteins for lysosomes, the Golgi apparatus, or the endoplasmic reticulum, and evaluated by confocal microscopy. RESULTS: Concentrations of human cystatin C secreted from transfected NIH/3T3 cells were similar to those secreted from human cells in culture. In general, clones expressing the gene encoding L68Q cystatin C secreted slightly lower amounts of the protein than clones expressing wild-type human cystatin C. Both immunofluorescence cytochemistry and western blotting experiments showed an increased accumulation of cystatin C in cells expressing the gene encoding L68Q cystatin C compared with cells expressing the gene for the wild-type protein. The intracellularly accumulating L68Q cystatin C was insoluble and located mainly in the endoplasmic reticulum. CONCLUSIONS: The cellular transport of human cystatin C is impeded by the pathogenic amino acid substitution Leu68-->Gln. The resulting intracellular accumulation and increased localised concentration of L68Q cystatin C might be an important event in the molecular pathophysiology of amyloid formation and brain haemorrhage in patients with HCCAA.  (+info)

Histopathologic analysis of foci of signal loss on gradient-echo T2*-weighted MR images in patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage: evidence of microangiopathy-related microbleeds. (2/260)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Patients with spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) frequently have small areas of signal loss on gradient-echo T2*-weighted MR images, which have been suggested to represent remnants of previous microbleeds. Our aim was to provide histopathologic support for this assumption and to clarify whether the presence and location of microbleeds were associated with microangiopathy. METHODS: We performed MR imaging and correlative histopathologic examination in 11 formalin-fixed brains of patients who had died of an ICH (age range, 45-90 years). RESULTS: Focal areas of signal loss on MR images were noted in seven brains. They were seen in a corticosubcortical location in six brains, in the basal ganglia/thalami in five, and infratentorially in three specimens. Histopathologic examination showed focal hemosiderin deposition in 21 of 34 areas of MR signal loss. No other corresponding abnormalities were found; however, hemosiderin deposits were noted without MR signal changes in two brains. All specimens with MR foci of signal loss showed moderate to severe fibrohyalinosis, and there was additional evidence of amyloid angiopathy in two of those brains. CONCLUSION: Small areas of signal loss on gradient echo T2*-weighted images indicate previous extravasation of blood and are related to bleeding-prone microangiopathy of different origins.  (+info)

Cerebral amyloid angiopathy-related hemorrhage. Interaction of APOE epsilon2 with putative clinical risk factors. (3/260)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: Current evidence suggests that the apolipoprotein E (APOE for gene; apoE for protein) epsilon4 allele predisposes to cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) whereas epsilon2 is associated with CAA-related hemorrhage (CAAH). The clinical risk factors for other forms of intracranial hemorrhage are a less-frequent feature of CAAH. In this study we examined potential clinical risk factors in patients with CAAH and assessed these with respect to APOE genotype. METHODS: Thirty-six patients were identified with a pathological diagnosis of CAAH. Clinical notes were reviewed to document age of hemorrhage onset, history of dementia, antiplatelet/anticoagulant medication, hypertension, minor head trauma, or transient neurological events. In a review of reported cases of CAAH, the frequency of these clinical features was also recorded. APOE genotypes were determined with use of polymerase chain reaction techniques. RESULTS: There were 24 women and 12 men; the mean age was 70.3 years. One third (n=12) had been taking antiplatelet medication, and a similar number were demented. Nine patients were hypertensive, and 4 had a history of recent minor head trauma. The relative frequency of each of these clinical features was similar to that in previous reports. Forty-four percent (16 of 36) possessed an epsilon2 allele. Antiplatelet or anticoagulant medication, hypertension, or minor head trauma were significantly more frequent antecedents of CAAH in epsilon2 carriers than in non-epsilon2 carriers (81% versus 35%, P=0.008), antiplatelet/anticoagulant medication in particular (P=0.038). CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that antiplatelet or anticoagulant medication, hypertension, or minor head trauma are most likely to precipitate cerebral hemorrhage in patients with CAA who are also epsilon2 carriers. This may result from isoform-specific effects of apoE on the structure of amyloid-laden blood vessel walls.  (+info)

Soluble amyloid beta peptide concentration as a predictor of synaptic change in Alzheimer's disease. (4/260)

We have characterized amyloid beta peptide (Abeta) concentration, Abeta deposition, paired helical filament formation, cerebrovascular amyloid angiopathy, apolipoprotein E (ApoE) allotype, and synaptophysin concentration in entorhinal cortex and superior frontal gyrus of normal elderly control (ND) patients, Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients, and high pathology control (HPC) patients who meet pathological criteria for AD but show no synapse loss or overt antemortem symptoms of dementia. The measures of Abeta deposition, Abeta-immunoreactive plaques with and without cores, thioflavin histofluorescent plaques, and concentrations of insoluble Abeta, failed to distinguish HPC from AD patients and were poor correlates of synaptic change. By contrast, concentrations of soluble Abeta clearly distinguished HPC from AD patients and were a strong inverse correlate of synapse loss. Further investigation revealed that Abeta40, whether in soluble or insoluble form, was a particularly useful measure for classifying ND, HPC, and AD patients compared with Abeta42. Abeta40 is known to be elevated in cerebrovascular amyloid deposits, and Abeta40 (but not Abeta42) levels, cerebrovascular amyloid angiopathy, and ApoE4 allele frequency were all highly correlated with each other. Although paired helical filaments in the form of neurofibrillary tangles or a penumbra of neurites surrounding amyloid cores also distinguished HPC from AD patients, they were less robust predictors of synapse change compared with soluble Abeta, particularly soluble Abeta40. Previous experiments attempting to relate Abeta deposition to the neurodegeneration that underlies AD dementia may have failed because they assayed the classical, visible forms of the molecule, insoluble neuropil plaques, rather than the soluble, unseen forms of the molecule.  (+info)

A deletion polymorphism of alpha(2)-macroglobulin gene and cerebral amyloid angiopathy. (5/260)

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: alpha(2)-Macroglobulin may be implicated in amyloid beta protein deposition. A deletion in the exon 18 splice acceptor of the alpha(2)-macroglobulin gene (A2M) has been reported to be associated with risk for Alzheimer's disease (AD). In search of genetic risk factors for cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), we investigated association of the A2M deletion polymorphism with CAA. METHODS: The association between the severity of CAA and A2M deletion polymorphism was investigated in 178 autopsy cases of the elderly including 68 patients with AD. RESULTS: There was no significant difference in the severity of CAA between individuals with the A2M deletion allele and those without in the AD, non-AD, or total cases. Status for the epsilon4 allele of the apolipoprotein E gene did not influence the results. CONCLUSIONS: Our results suggest that the A2M deletion polymorphism may not be a definitive risk factor of CAA in the elderly, although further study with larger samples is necessary to confirm this.  (+info)

Neuronal overexpression of mutant amyloid precursor protein results in prominent deposition of cerebrovascular amyloid. (6/260)

Transgenic mice that overexpress mutant human amyloid precursor protein (APP) exhibit one hallmark of Alzheimer's disease pathology, namely the extracellular deposition of amyloid plaques. Here, we describe significant deposition of amyloid beta (Abeta) in the cerebral vasculature [cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA)] in aging APP23 mice that had striking similarities to that observed in human aging and Alzheimer's disease. Amyloid deposition occurred preferentially in arterioles and capillaries and within individual vessels showed a wide heterogeneity (ranging from a thin ring of amyloid in the vessel wall to large plaque-like extrusions into the neuropil). CAA was associated with local neuron loss, synaptic abnormalities, microglial activation, and microhemorrhage. Although several factors may contribute to CAA in humans, the neuronal origin of transgenic APP, high levels of Abeta in cerebrospinal fluid, and regional localization of CAA in APP23 mice suggest transport and drainage pathways rather than local production or blood uptake of Abeta as a primary mechanism underlying cerebrovascular amyloid formation. APP23 mice on an App-null background developed a similar degree of both plaques and CAA, providing further evidence that a neuronal source of APP/Abeta is sufficient to induce cerebrovascular amyloid and associated neurodegeneration.  (+info)

Novel presenilin-1 mutation with widespread cortical amyloid deposition but limited cerebral amyloid angiopathy. (7/260)

OBJECTIVE: To clarify the phenotypic heterogeneity in deposition of amyloid beta (Abeta) in the parenchyma and in cerebral vessels of the brains of the patients having presenilin-1 (PS1) mutations. Mutations in PS1 induce increased production of Abeta42(43), resulting in an enhanced overall deposition of Abeta protein within the cerebral cortex. METHODS: Sequence analysis of the PS1 gene of DNA from patients with early onset Alzheimer's disease, and immunostaining of brain tissues by end specific monoclonal antibodies against Abeta. RESULTS: Sequence analysis disclosed a novel mutation (N405S) in the PS1 gene in a Japanese patient with early-onset Alzheimer's disease. Postmortem examination of one patient with N405S showed limited cerebral amyloid angiopathy, whereas postmortem examination of another Japanese patient with Alzheimer's disease with the E184D mutation disclosed severe cerebral amyloid angiopathy. The brains of both patients showed widespread neuritic plaques, neurofibrillary tangles, and neuronal loss. Immunostaining showed that Abeta42 was predominant over Abeta40 in neuritic plaques in both patients, whereas Abeta40 was found to be predominant over Abeta42 in cerebral amyloid angiopathy in the patient with E184D. However, most cortical vessels of the patient with N405S were not reactive with either of the antibodies. CONCLUSION: The N405S mutation of PS1 is a major determinant of cortical Abeta deposition but not cerebral amyloid angiopathy in Alzheimer's disease.  (+info)

Apolipoprotein E genotype and the risk of recurrent lobar intracerebral hemorrhage. (8/260)

BACKGROUND: Recurrent lobar intracerebral hemorrhage is the hallmark of cerebral amyloid angiopathy. The factors that predispose patients to early recurrence of lobar hemorrhage are unknown. One candidate is the apolipoprotein E gene, since both the epsilon2 and the epsilon4 alleles of apolipoprotein E appear to be associated with the severity of amyloid angiopathy. METHODS: We performed a prospective, longitudinal study of consecutive elderly patients who survived a lobar intracerebral hemorrhage. The patients were followed for recurrent hemorrhagic stroke by interviews at six-month intervals and reviews of medical records and computed tomographic scans. RESULTS: Nineteen of 71 enrolled patients had recurrent hemorrhages during a mean follow-up period of 23.9+/-14.8 months, yielding a 2-year cumulative rate of recurrence of 21 percent. The apolipoprotein E genotype was significantly associated with the risk of recurrence. Carriers of the epsilon2 or epsilon4 allele had a two-year rate of recurrence of 28 percent, as compared with only 10 percent for patients with the common apolipoprotein E epsilon3/epsilon3 genotype (risk ratio, 3.8; 95 percent confidence interval, 1.2 to 11.6; P=0.01). Early recurrence occurred in eight patients, four of whom had the uncommon epsilon2/epsilon4 genotype. Also at increased risk for recurrence were patients with a history of hemorrhagic stroke before entry into the study (two-year recurrence, 61 percent; risk ratio, 6.4; 95 percent confidence interval, 2.2 to 18.5; P<0.001). CONCLUSIONS: The apolipoprotein E genotype can identify patients with lobar intracerebral hemorrhage who are at highest risk for early recurrence. This finding makes possible both the provision of prognostic information to patients with lobar hemorrhage and a method of targeting and assessing potential strategies for prevention.  (+info)

Rodrigues MA, Samarasekera N, Lerpiniere C, et al. Lancet Neurol 2018; 17:232-240. Abstract BACKGROUND: Identification of lobar spontaneous intracerebral haemorrhage associated with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is important because it is associated…
Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is characterized by the deposition of fibrillar protein with beta-pleated sheet configuration in the media and adventitia of small cortical and leptomeningeal arteries and capillaries [2]. Previous studies based on autopsy observation revealed that the risk of CAA increased with age, which was around 38% between 80-89 years reached up to 42% in patient above the age of 90 [3]. CAA encompasses specific cerebrovascular traits including spontaneous lobar intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), cognitive impairment, subarachnoid hemorrhage, and transient focal neurological episodes, with characteristic imaging manifestation of lobar ICH, cortical superficial siderosis, white matter changes, microhemorrhage and microinfarct.. Interestingly in our case report, the microbleeds were strictly lateralized and predominantly in the MCA supplied territory, rather than in a diffused pattern. It has been acknowledged that the CAA could have certain localization preference. One ...
Background Sporadic cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is the most common cause of lobar intracranial haemorrhage, which in itself accounts for about 5-10% of all strokes. Amyloid deposition in small arteries of the cerebrum leads to friability and haemorrhage. There are also rare familial forms of amyloidosis affecting the nervous system that more typically result in early…
A 56-year-old man noticed discomfort in his left lower limb, followed by convulsion and numbness in the same area. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) showed white matter lesions in the right parietal lobe accompanied by leptomeningeal or leptomeningeal and cortical post-contrast enhancement along the parietal sulci. The patient also exhibited higher brain dysfunction corresponding with the lesions on MRI. Histological pathology disclosed β-amyloid in the blood vessels and perivascular inflammation, which highlights the diagnosis of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA)-related inflammation. Pulse steroid therapy was so effective that clinical and radiological findings immediately improved. CAA-related inflammation is a rare disease, defined by the deposition of amyloid proteins within the leptomeningeal and cortical arteries associated with vasculitis or perivasculitis. Here we report a patient with CAA-related inflammation who showed higher brain dysfunction that improved with steroid therapy. In cases with
Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is estimated to be responsible for ≈5% to 20% of nontraumatic intracerebral hemorrhages and 30% of lobar hemorrhages.3 Whereas CAA may be asymptomatic, a classic clinical presentation is lobar hemorrhage, often recurrent or multifocal, in an elderly individual. Less commonly, patients may present with TIA or other ischemic stroke-like episodes, seizures, or dementia involving a spectrum of cognitive decline.4. In the past decade, neuroimaging studies, particularly MRI, have played an increasingly important role in the diagnosis and understanding of the pathophysiology of CAA.5 Specifically, gradient-recalled echo sequences have documented the occurrence, frequency, and distribution of microbleeds. Multiple lobar microbleeds, particularly in the absence of deep microbleeds and an alternative cause (eg, hypertension, CADASIL), are now considered a radiological hallmark of CAA.1. An additional MRI technique, diffusion-weighted imaging, has offered the ability to ...

In patients with cerebral venous thrombosis (CVT) the incidence of intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is estimated at about 37% and subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) at 1% of patients. A case with coincident occurrence of ICH, SAH and CVT in a patient with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is reported....
Amyloid is deposited in the walls of arteries and capillaries as cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) in the brains of older individuals and of those with Alzheimer disease (AD). CAA in AD reflects an age-related failure of elimination of amyloid-beta (A?) from the brain along perivascular lymphatic drainage pathways. In the absence of conventional lymphatic vessel in the brain, interstitial fluid and solutes drain from the brain to cervical lymph nodes along narrow basement membranes in the walls of capillaries and arteries, a pathway that is largely separate from the cerebrospinal fluid. In this review we focus on the pathology and pathogenesis of CAA, its role in the aetiology of AD and its impact on immunotherapy for AD. The motive force for lymphatic drainage of the brain appears to be generated by arterial pulsations. Failure of elimination of A? along perivascular pathways coincides with a reduction in enzymic degradation of A?, reduced absorption of A? into the blood and age-related ...

CAA is not necessarily associated with CAA-related disorders. The pathogenesis of CAA-related disorders consists of two steps: (1) cerebrovascular amyloid deposition and (2) vascular injury including disruption, occlusion, and permeability changes. The cerebrovascular amyloid deposition (Step 1) is the primary target of prevention and therapy. Anti-amyloid therapies for CAA are under development including ponezumab, a humanized monoclonal antibody that binds specifically to the carboxyl terminus of Aβ40.115 Ponezumab was originally developed for AD immunotherapy, and an acceptable safety profile has been suggested for ponezumab in clinical trials for AD.116,117,118 Currently, ponezumab has been applied to CAA. A phase 2, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial is ongoing to evaluate the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetics, and efficacy of ponezumab (PF-04360365) in adult patients with probable CAA-related hemorrhages (NCT01821118).119.

age-related macular degeneration Genetics Home Reference provides information about age-related macular degeneration. hereditary cerebral amyloid angiopathy At least one mutation in the CST3 gene has been found to cause hereditary cerebral amyloid angiopathy, a condition characterized by stroke and a decline in intellectual function (dementia), which begins in mid-adulthood. The CST3 gene mutation that has been identified causes a form of hereditary cerebral amyloid angiopathy known as the Icelandic type. This mutation replaces the protein building block (amino acid) leucine with the amino acid glutamine at position 68 in the cystatin C protein (written as Leu68Gln or L68Q). This abnormal cystatin C protein is less stable and is more prone to cluster together (aggregate) than the normal protein. The aggregated protein forms clumps called amyloid deposits that accumulate in the blood vessel walls primarily in the brain, but also in blood vessels in other areas of the body such as the skin, ...
Hemorrhagic Stroke due to CAA represents approximately 7% of all strokes.. The current phase II clinical study investigates the safety, tolerability, pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic profiles of the drug candidate in patients who have suffered lobar hemorrhages. The initial phase of the study is also aimed at determining the optimal dosing regimens for subsequent drug candidate efficacy trials. The trial is also evaluating the appearance of new cerebral hemorrhages on gradient-echo MRI scans, the amyloid ß (Aß) protein levels in the plasma and cerebrospinal fluid and the neurological and cognitive functions. ...
The major finding from this cohort study of patients with possible or probable CAA is that, among MRI markers of CAA, global mean ADC (reflecting microstructural tissue organization) is most strongly related to the presence of pre-ICH cognitive impairment. The association of mean ADC with PICI was independent of age, clinical variables, amount of visible cerebral atrophy, and other MRI markers. By contrast, we failed to detect a relationship between PICI and WMH volume, number of MB, or visible cerebral atrophy.. Decreased cognitive performance has previously been associated with CAA. The prevalence of cognitive dysfunction before CAA-related ICH is reported to be 20% to 40%4,5,17,30 Autopsy-based studies of stroke-free individuals show that CAA is a risk factor for decreased antemortem cognitive performance while simultaneously controlling for the pathology of Alzheimer disease.31,32 This suggests that the association between CAA and cognitive dysfunction is not entirely mediated by concomitant ...
p,A hemi-paralyzed 86-year-old man was diagnosed with ischemic stroke and underwent thrombolysis. Pre-thrombolysis brain magnetic resonance imaging revealed extensive strictly lobar cerebral microbleeding (CMB). Post-thrombolytic computed tomography revealed asymptomatic multiple intracerebral hemorrhaging (ICH). His age, CMB topography, and decreased cerebral spinal fluid amyloid-β 40 and 42 levels were compatible with a diagnosis of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA). There is no consensus on the safety of thrombolysis for acute stroke patients with CAA. Patients with CAA might have a higher incidence of thrombolysis-related ICH than those without CAA. ,/p,. ...

Blood Oxygen Level Dependant (BOLD) fMRI was performed at Screening (Baseline) and on Days 2 and 90. During each of these sessions, BOLD fMRI images were acquired in rapid succession as a flashing radial black and white checkerboard was presented alternately with a gray screen. This well established visual stimulus is known to produce a reliable increase in BOLD fMRI signal within the visual cortex region of the occipital lobe. The time course of the BOLD fMRI signal was used to assess the vascular reactivity. Imaging sites also acquired cerebral blood flow data using Arterial Spin Labeled (ASL) scans at Screening and on Days 2 and 90. A standard T1-weighted image was also acquired to aid image analysis. All efficacy scans were analyzed centrally. Geometric means are presented in the original scale and standard errors (SE) are presented in logarithmic (log e) scale ...

Deposition of beta-amyloid along cerebral vessels is found in most patients suffering from Alzheimers disease. The effects of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) on the function of cerebral blood vessels were analyzed applying cerebral blood volume (CBV)-based fMRI to transgenic arcA beta mice. In a cortical brain region of interest (ROI), displaying high CAA, arcA beta mice older than 16 months showed reduced response to the vasodilatory substance acetazolamide compared to age-matched wild-type animals, both with regard to rate (vascular reactivity) and extent of vasodilation (maximal vasodilation). In a subcortical ROI, displaying little CAA, no genotype-specific decrease was observed, but maximal vasodilation decreased with age in arcA beta and wild-types. These findings indicate that vascular beta-amyloid deposits reduce the capacity of cerebral blood vessels to dilate upon demand, supporting the hypothesis that vascular beta-amyloid contributes to hypoperfusion and neurological deficits ...
The article by Pfeifer et al. describes the exacerbation of cerebral hemorrhages seen in an aged APP-transgenic model following passive administration of anti-Aβ antibodies directed to amino acids 3-6. This particular transgenic mouse, called APP23, is described by the authors in a previous paper as a spontaneous hemorrhagic stroke mouse model (Winkler et al., 2001). At approximately 19 months of age onward, the mouse exhibits severe cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), which is associated with recurrent hemorrhages as the mice age. Moderate to severe cerebral vascular amyloid also exists in approximately 26 percent of Alzheimers disease patients, as well, though the rate of hemorrhages is less than that seen in the APP23 mouse (approximately five percent of AD cases; see Greenberg et al., 1998).. When the authors gave 21-month-old APP23 mice a monoclonal antibody directed to Aβ3-6 once a week for five months, they saw that the rate of hemorrhages increased about twofold above baseline. The ...
The accumulation of amyloid-β (Aβ) peptides as toxic oligomers, amyloid plaques, and cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is critical in the pathogenesis of Alzheimers disease (AD). The binding of Aβ peptides to apolipoprotein E (ApoE) plays an important role in modulation of amyloid deposition and clearance. We have shown that blocking the Aβ/ApoE interaction with Aβ12-28P, a nontoxic blood-brain-barrier permeable and non-fibrillogenic synthetic peptide, constitutes a novel therapeutic approach for AD by reducing Aβ parenchymal deposition. In the present study, we investigate this therapeutic effect on CAA in the transgenic (Tg) AD mice model (TgSwDI), which expresses Swedish (K670N/M671L), Dutch (E693Q)/Iowa (D694N) Aβ PP mutations. These mice develop abundant CAA beginning at the age of 6 months. Behavioral results show that Aβ12-28P treated TgSwDI AD mice performed the same as wild-type mice, whereas vehicle treated TgSwDI were impaired in spatial memory. Furthermore, this treatment resulted
Alzheimers disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that has emerged as the most prevalent form of late-life dementia in humans [1]. Production of amyloid-β (Aβ) from the amyloid precursor protein (APP) and its subsequent accumulation, aggregation and deposition in the brain are central events in the pathogenesis of AD [1]. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is a major pathological feature of AD where amyloid spreads and deposits throughout the blood vessel walls in the central nervous system. These pathogenic events induce a specific clinical presentation profile including cerebral hemorrhage, stroke, ischemic infarctions, subarachnoid hemorrhage, seizures, cognitive impairment and dementia [2]. While Aβ is a key molecule in AD, epidemiological studies have shown that several well-established risk factors for AD, including diabetes mellitus, atherosclerosis, stroke, hypertension, transient ischemic attacks, microvessel pathology and smoking, have a vascular component that ...

N2 - Spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is one of the most recognized complications of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), but little is known about the molecular pathogenesis of this life-threatening complication. In this review, we present preliminary evidence which suggests that the extracellular-matrix-degrading protease, matrix metalloproteinase-9 (MMP-9), may play a role in the development of spontaneous ICH resulting from CAA. The amyloid-beta peptide (Aβ) induced the synthesis, cellular release, and activation of MMP-9 in murine cerebral endothelial cells (CECs), resulting in increased extracellular matrix (ECM) degradation. Furthermore, in a mouse model of CAA (APPsw transgenic mice), MMP-9 ...
The studies by Meyer-Luehman et al. extend insights into the in vivo formation of amyloid deposits by amyloid seeds that may be hetero- and/or homo-amyloidogenic inducers of amyloid fibrillization. This is significant because these types of studies will lead to the clarification of the perplexing conundrum of why there is a frequent co-occurrence of multiple different types of amyloids in neurodegenerative disorders characterized by brain amyloidosis. Indeed, double and triple neurodegenerative brain amyloidoses appear to far exceed in incidence and prevalence any neurodegenerative brain amyloidosis linked to a single amyloidogenic protein or peptide, and this enigma demands clarification if we are to develop more effective therapies for these disorders.. For example, with respect to Aβ deposits, these may occur by themselves as pathological signatures of single brain amyloidoses, such as cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), which most commonly manifests clinically as stroke. This ...
Alzheimers disease (AD), the most common form of neurodegenerative disorder, is characterized by deposition of amyloid-β (Aβ) plaques in the brain. Aβ monomer undergoes nucleation to form oligomers, then soluble aggregates, then fibrils which make up the plaques. Aβ oligomer species are believed to be the most neurotoxic aggregate species. Currently under investigation is a mechanism for Aβ removal from the brain, across the blood-brain barrier (BBB). P-glycoprotein (P-gp) is a membrane-bound efflux protein located on the apical, or blood, side of the BBB, which transports a wide variety of substrates. Further complicating this potential clearance mechanism is the reduction of P-gp cell surface expression in arteries exhibiting cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA), or the buildup of amyloid plaques around the arteries. P-gp has been suggested as a potential Aβ clearance mechanism based on its ability to transport a wide variety of amphipathic substrates even though experimental evidence of Aβ

Spontaneous intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH), defined as nontraumatic bleeding into the brain parenchyma, is the second most common subtype of stroke, with 5.3 million cases and over 3 million deaths reported worldwide in 2010. Case fatality is extremely high (reaching approximately 60 % at 1 year post event). Only 20 % of patients who survive are independent within 6 months. Factors such as chronic hypertension, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, and anticoagulation are commonly associated with ICH. Chronic arterial hypertension represents the major risk factor for bleeding ...
The goal of this laboratory is to study the physiology of the cerebral microcirculation and device treatments to alleviate cerebrovascular dysfunction. This laboratory is headed by Dr. Ralph G. Dacey, Jr., Schwartz Professor and chairman of the Department of Neurological Surgery. Dr. Daceys research centers on the implications of physiological phenomena on pathological conditions affecting the cerebral microvasculature such as subarachnoid hemorrhage and acute hypoxia with subsequent reoxygenation. In a second line of research, Dr. Hans H. Dietrich, assistant professor of neurological surgery, studies the role of purinergic regulation in microvascular regulation and adjustment of local microvascular flow. Recent additions to Dr. Dietrichs research interests include mechanism of amyloid beta-induced cerebrovascular dysfunction, cerebral amyloid angiopathy and vascular function in Alzheimers Disease, cerebral microvessel and astrocyte communication using a new ex vivo model of the neurovascular ...
Azeliragon, also known as TTP488 and PF-04494700, is a potent and orally active RAGE inhibitor. RAGE (receptor for advanced glycation endproducts) is a pattern recognition receptor, which affects the movement of amyloid, an Alzheimers-associated protein, into the brain. In preclinical studies, azeliragon decreased brain amyloid in mice and improved their performance on behavior tests. Azeliragon is a promising agent for for Alzheimers disease and cerebral amyloid angiopathy.
Several studies have shown that elevated plasma cholesterol levels (i.e. hypercholesterolemia) serve as a risk factor for late-onset Alzheimers disease (AD). However, it remains unclear how hypercholesterolemia may contribute to the onset and progression of AD pathology. In order to determine the role of hypercholesterolemia at various stages of AD, we evaluated the effects of high cholesterol diet (5% cholesterol) in wild-type (WT; C57BL6) and triple-transgenic AD (3xTg-AD: Psen1, APPSwe, tauB301L) mice at 7, 14, and 20 months. The transgenic APP-Swedish/Dutch/Iowa AD mouse model (APPSwDI) was used as a control since these animals are more pathologically-accelerated and are known to exhibit extensive plaque deposition and cerebral amyloid angiopathy. Here, we describe the effects of high cholesterol diet on: (1) cognitive function and stress, (2) AD-associated pathologies, (3) neuroinflammation, (4) blood-brain barrier disruption and ventricle size, and (5) vascular dysfunction. Our data show ...

Senile plaques (SP) and amyloid angiopathy seen in the Alzheimers disease (AD) brain have been found in the brains of aged dogs (more than 9 years old) (Figs. 1 and 2). However, neurofibrillary tangles (NFT), another characteristic lesion in AD, have never been observed in the brains of aged dogs. Neuronal cell loss is an additional histopathological hallmark and apoptotic neuronal cell death was detected in the brains of AD patients. It would be worthwhile to clarify the difference of brain lesions between AD patients and other aged mammalian species including dogs and to discuss the usefulness of aged mammals as models for AD. Therefore, we examined brain pathology in the aged animal brains. Apoptotic (TUNEL stain-positive) cells were present in both the cortex and white matter of the aged dog brain (Fig.3). Apoptotic neurons were swollen and larger than intact cells, although these changes were slight. Apoptotic bodies or chromatin margination, which are the typical morphological ...
SS has asymmetric male:female ratio of approximately 3:1, most frequently seen between ages of 50 to 60 years. SS results from chronic haemorrhage byproduct deposits in the pia-arachnoid. Its aetiology could be idiopathic or seen in patients with traumatic brain or spinal cord injury, previous CNS tumour, history of neurosurgical interventions, amyloid angiopathy and subarachnoid haemorrhage from aneurysms or arteriovenous malformations [1, 2 ...
Non-traumatic cortical superficial siderosis (cSS) is a common finding in patients with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) and can be its sole imaging sign. The clinical features and course as well as the prognostic significance of cSS in CAA patients remain unclear. In a retrospective study we have previously shown that cSS might be an important predictor or warning sign for future intracranial hemorrhage. However, prospective data are missing. The Superficial Siderosis in Patients with suspected Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy (SuSPect-CAA) study is designed as a prospective observational multi-centre cohort study. Primary objective of the study is to evaluate if cSS is a predictor for future stroke and mortality (primary endpoint: combined rate of stroke and death after 36 months). Secondary objectives of the study include 1) to evaluate if cSS represents a marker of future intracranial haemorrhage, especially at the site of initial siderosis, 2) to describe the clinical presentation and course of ...
0036] There are many other diseases in addition to Alzheimers that progress with simultaneous changes in both proteins such as, for example but without limitation, moderate cognitive disorders or deficits, hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis-Dutch type, cerebral amyloid angiopathy, dementia associated with Parkinsons disease, neurodegenerative disease due to diffuse Lewy bodies, corticobasal degeneration, sub-acute sclerosing panencephalitis, dementia with argyrophilic grain disease and familial Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker disease. Therefore, another preferred embodiment of this aspect of the invention refers to the use of a compound of chemical structure (I) for the preparation of a medicinal drug for the prevention and/or treatment of a pathology related to increase in β-amyloid and hyperphosphorylation of tau that is selected from the list comprising: Alzheimers disease, moderate cognitive disorders or deficits, hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis-Dutch type, ...
We evaluated cerebrospinal fluid amyloid-β 1-40 (Aβ40), amyloid-β 1-42 (Aβ42), total and phosphorylated-tau (t-tau and p-tau) in patients with symptomatic isolated cortical supratentorial superficial siderosis (SS), by prospectively recruiting ten patients with SS in the absence of pre-existing cognitive dysfunction, and comparing biomarkers with lobar hematoma cerebral amyloid angiopathy patients (LH-CAA, n = 13), Alzheimers disease patients (AD, n = 42), and controls (n = 16). Compared to controls, SS patients showed statistically significant higher t-tau (p = 0.019) and lower Aβ42 (p = 0.0084). Compared to other groups, SS showed statistically significant lower t-tau, p-tau, and Aβ40 compared to AD (p = 0.0063, p = 0.0004, and p = 0022, respectively), and higher p-tau compared to LH-CAA (p = 0.012).

BACKGROUND Cortical superficial siderosis (CSS) is a neuroimaging marker of cerebral amyloid angiopathy and has been associated with a high risk for early subsequent major intracranial hemorrhage (ICH). Therefore, many experts recommend withholding of antithrombotic medication to patients with CSS. In this study, we sought to investigate the prevalence of CSS and the associated risk of ICH in the setting of intravenous thrombolysis (IVT) for ischemic stroke. METHODS We retrospectively searched the medical documentation system of our primary and tertiary care university clinic for all patients with ischemic stroke that received IVT from 2009 to December 2014. All available imaging data were reviewed in a standardized manner and blinded to any clinical data for the presence of CSS and ICH. CSS was defined as linear signal loss along the cerebral cortex on gradient echo T2*-weighted sequences. A stroke neurologist, who was blinded to the neuroimaging data, extracted the corresponding clinical data
Tau lesions also were found in the forms of NFT and clusters of tau-positive neurites (for example, pieces of dying neurons). NFT are observed in AD patients, but the tau-immunoreactive neuritic clusters in the neocortex appear specific to chimpanzees, said Dr. Patrick R. Hof, M.D., the Regenstreif professor and vice-chair of neuroscience at Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai. In addition, NFT pathology was observed in apes that exhibited plaques and moderate or severe cerebral amyloid angiopathy and in one individual with virtually no Aβ pathology.. The presence of amyloid and tau pathology in aged chimpanzees indicates these AD lesions are not specific to the human brain as generally believed, Hof said. Whether these pathologies play a key role in age-related cognitive decline requires continued investigation of this species, said Dr. Elliott Mufson, professor and the Greening Chair in Aging at the Barrow Neurological Institute.. This research adds to a growing number of studies ...

Alzheimers disease (AD) neural structures may have the inability to cope up with natural radiation [Momcilović B et al]. There exist DNA repair defects in familial AD, but not in sporadic AD [Boerrigter ME et al.]. Cranial radiation is a risk factor for A-β amyloid deposition and amyloid angiopathy in Brain. Radiation injures endothelial cells, breaks the blood-brain barrier and could be an enhancing factor of A-β deposition, although further study is necessary [Sugihara S et al.]. Changes typical of AD such as the formation of neuritic or diffuse plaques and tangles were not identified as a consequence of cranial irradiation. Although the neurodegenerative changes of radiation therapy are different from that of AD [Riudavets et al.], both have similar effect on cognitive function of neuronal structures [Shaw EG et al.]. Further studies with larger case sample that includes longer post-treatment intervals are needed to improve the understanding of the consequences and mechanisms leading to ...
One in 85 persons worldwide will be living with Alzheimers disease (AD), according to forecasts by Johns Hopkins University. To date, there is no cure for AD. Current FDA-approved therapies are symptomatic treatments that only modestly improve cognitive functions and do not stop the progression of the disease.. Stemedica Internationals unique, disease-modifying treatment combines itMSCs, itNSCs and related stem cell factors to improve the quality of life for AD patients. The company has conducted extensive pre-clinical studies to assess the technologys safety and efficacy on amyloid pathology and brain function in preparation for clinical applications in patients with mild to moderate AD. The data strongly supports that Stemedica Internationals therapy safely removes cerebral amyloid plaques, bringing new hope to patients and families affected by the condition. Pre-clinical data also supports the therapys potential application for patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI).. Stemedica ...
CAA has been identified as an independent risk factor for cognitive impairment and is associated with significant pathologies such as hemorrhage and ischemic damage (Greenberg et al., 2004). In typical cases, progressive CAA leads to the destruction of smooth muscle cells in the meningeal and parenchymal vasculature, presumably leading to tonal impairment and compromise of both perfusion and perivascular clearance systems (Christie et al., 2001; Preston et al., 2003). Currently Aβ-targeted therapeutic approaches for AD have not been shown to reduce vascular amyloid deposition in chronic in vivo preclinical paradigms. However, there is evidence that the direct application of amyloid antibodies to the brain (Prada et al., 2007) and blocking the apolipoprotein E/Aβ interaction (Sadowski et al., 2006) reduce VAβ.. We show here evidence of the near-complete prevention and/or clearance of VAβ by an N-terminal-specific Aβ antibody (3D6) after chronic treatment with a peripherally administered ...

The location of a primary intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) plays a large role in identifying the underlying cause and prognosis.1 Deep ICHs, located in the basal ganglia or brainstem, are associated with arteriolosclerosis due to aging, hypertension, and other conventional vascular risk factors, and they have a low rate of recurrence (≈1%/y-2%/y) if blood pressure is well controlled. Lobar ICHs, located in the cortex or underlying white matter, may instead be associated with cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) caused by vascular amyloid deposition and are associated with several-fold higher risk of recurrence. MRI can further risk-stratify patients by identifying microbleeds or cortical superficial siderosis, indicating past asymptomatic bleeding events.1 In patients with lobar ICH, evidence of superficial siderosis or microbleeds restricted exclusively to lobar locations increases the probability that the underlying cause is CAA,2 and they are associated with a high risk for recurrence. ...
Varol and Ozaydin1 raise an important question about the effects of antihypertensive drugs and statins on arterial stiffness. In fact, antihypertensive drugs reduce large arterial stiffness, partly independently of blood pressure reduction, suggesting specific pharmacological effects on arterial remodeling.2 Furthermore, statins and other cholesterol-reducing agents have been shown to have beneficial effects on wave reflection and aortic stiffness reduction in several patient groups.3 In our study,4 25 out of 39 hypertensive patients with deep intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) and 11 out of 15 hypertensive patients with lobar ICH received antihypertensive drugs, whereas 4 patients with deep ICH and 3 with lobar ICH received statins (Table 1). Fisher test showed no significant differences between the two groups with regard to patients treated with antihypertensive drugs (P=1, not significant) and with statins (P=0.41, not significant), confirming our hypothesis that arterial stiffness may play a key ...

Missense mutations in APP and PS1 lead to familial forms of AD by different mechanisms. Most PS1 mutations shift γ‐secretase cleavage to increased Aβ42 production, which in turn accelerates cerebral amyloidosis in transgenic mice (Borchelt et al, 1997; Holcomb et al, 1998; Siman et al, 2000). An inverse correlation between the Aβ42 to Aβ40 ratio and the age of onset in familial AD has also been reported (Duering et al, 2005).. Mutations at position Leu 166 in PS1 lead to a severe course of AD pathology, with a very early onset in the third or fourth decade of life. So far, three mutations at position Leu 166 (L166A, L166P and L166H) have been described; the L166P mutation seems to be the most pathogenic (Ezquerra et al, 2000; Moehlmann et al, 2002; Pantieri et al, 2005). Expressing PS1‐L166P in transfected cells resulted in the highest Aβ42 to Aβ40 ratio among several PS1 mutations (Moehlmann et al, 2002). However, in contrast to other PS1 mutations, the L166P mutation has been shown ...

An independent safety monitoring committee has found that patients with AD given the highest dose of an experimental monoclonal antibody, bapineuzumab, were more likely to develop cerebral vasogenic edema; the highest dose was subsequently discontinued from the clinical trial (Salloway et al., 2009). The Food and Drug Administration has also posted concerns regarding the safety of immunotherapy approaches, stating that microhemorrhage susceptibility is a risk factor for vasogenic edema. This highlights the importance of such safety assessments while developing immunotherapy strategies for the treatment of AD.. Although the diagnosis of microhemorrhages in human brain by gradient-echo sequence or T2*-weighted MRI (Offenbacher et al., 1996; Fazekas et al., 1999; Greenberg et al., 2004) has been established, the preclinical identification of cerebral microhemorrhage is challenging because microhemorrhage in a mouse brain is approximately two orders of magnitude smaller (in the range 20 to 400 μm) ...

This study investigated the in vivo properties of two heavy chain antibody fragments (V\(_H\)H), ni3A and pa2H, to differentially detect vascular or parenchymal amyloid-\(\beta\) deposits characteristic for Alzheimers disease and cerebral amyloid angiopathy. Blood clearance and biodistribution including brain uptake were assessed by bolus injection of radiolabeled (V\(_H\)H) in APP/PS1 mice or wildtype littermates. In addition, in vivo specificity for A\(\beta\) was examined in more detail with fluorescently labeled (V\(_H\)H) by circumventing the blood-brain barrier via direct application or intracarotid co-injection with mannitol. All (V\(_H\)H) showed rapid renal clearance (10-20 min). Twenty-four hours post-injection \(^{99m}\)Tc-pa2H resulted in a small yet significant higher cerebral uptake in the APP/PS1 animals. No difference in brain uptake were observed for \(^{99m}\)Tc-ni3A or DTPA(\(^{111}\)In)-pa2H, which lacked additional peptide tags to investigate further clinical applicability. ...
Background: The L68Q variant of cystatin C is highly amyloidogenic forming aggregates in individuals with HCCAA. Results: Spermatozoa from mice expressing human L68Q cystatin C exhibit fertility defects and increased levels of amyloid. Conclusion: L68Q epididymal fluid containing cystatin C amyloid is harmful for sperm function. Significance: Amyloid in the reproductive tract may contribute to male factor infertility. Hereditary cystatin C amyloid angiopathy is an autosomal dominant disorder in which a variant form of cystatin C (L68Q) readily forms amyloid deposits in cerebral arteries in affected individuals resulting in early death. L68Q protein deposits in human cystatin C amyloid angiopathy patients have also been found in tissues outside of the brain including the testis, suggesting possible effects on fertility. Heterozygous transgenic mice (L68Q) that express the human L68Q variant of cystatin C under the control of the mouse cystatin C promoter were unable to generate offspring, ...

As has been described in naturally occurring CAA (1, 5), vascular amyloid deposition in APP23 mice is most frequently found in arteries/arterioles and occurs most often in vessels outside the brain parenchyma proper (e.g., pia, fissures). The arterial predilection suggests that an anatomical difference between arteries and veins (e.g., presence of significant amounts of smooth muscle) could contribute to the development of CAA. Indeed, it has been hypothesized that Aβ is deposited by vascular smooth muscle cells and/or perivascular microglia, and APP expression and Aβ production by vascular cells have been well documented (22, 23). These reports and the observation that vessels apart from the neuropil are more often affected strongly implicate local production or circulating Aβ as an important source, although these hypotheses fail to explain the exclusive localization of CAA to cerebral vessels. In the present study, through examination of APP transgenic mice on an App-null background, we ...

Amyloid accumulation in the brain of Alzheimers patients results from altered processing of the 39- to 43-amino acid amyloid protein (A). [1], [2]. The excessive accumulation of A peptides in AD may be due to enhanced endoproteolytic cleavage of membrane bound amyloid precursor protein (APP), over-expression of APP and/or decreased clearance of A from the central nervous system (CNS) [3]C[5]. Postmortem analyses of AD subjects reveal that amyloid plaques in the brain suffuse vascular cells in addition to the parenchymal. The ramifications of this vascular infiltration for AD has been less well analyzed than the parenchymal A, but has generated 61939-05-7 manufacture considerable interest with studies that -amyloid fibrils accumulate in small blood vessels, capillary vessels and arterioles of Rabbit Polyclonal to PRKY the human brain [6]C[8]. Cerebrovascular amyloid toxicity generally manifests itself in the break of the blood-brain-barrier and improved irritation in the cerebrovasculature [9], ...

Handling of Mice. The Tg2576 mice were developed by Karen Hsaio (Hsiao et al., 1996) and licensed from the Mayo Foundation for Medical Education and Research (Rochester, MN). Male Tg2576 transgenic mice were bred to normal C57BL6/SJL females at the Bristol-Myers Squibb facility in Wallingford, CT. Mice were housed with a 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM light/dark cycle and allowed free access to food and water. Both male and female mice were used in these studies, and although no differences in Aβ were observed between them, only one sex was used in a single study. Young Tg2576 mice were used between 3 and 6 months of age, whereas aged animals were used at 14 to 17 months. BMS-299897 was synthesized by the Medicinal Chemistry groups of SIBIA Neurosciences, Inc. (now Merck Research Laboratories, San Diego, CA) and Bristol-Myers Squibb.

Using luminescent conjugated polyelectrolyte probes (LCPs), we demonstrate the possibility to distinguish amyloid-β 1-42 peptide (Aβ1-42) fibril conformations, by analyzing in vitro generated amyloid fibrils of Aβ1-42 formed under quiescent and agitated conditions. LCPs were then shown to resolve such conformational heterogeneity of amyloid deposits in vivo. A diversity of amyloid deposits depending upon morphology and anatomic location was illustrated with LCPs in frozen ex vivo brain sections from a transgenic mouse model (tg-APPswe) of Alzheimers disease. Comparative LCP fluorescence showed that compact-core plaques of amyloid β precursor protein transgenic mice were composed of rigid dense amyloid. A more abundant form of amyloid plaque displayed morphology of a compact center with a protruding diffuse exterior. Surprisingly, the compact center of these plaques showed disordered conformations of the fibrils, and the exterior was composed of rigid amyloid protruding from the disordered ...

In this study, we found a fair-to-moderate inter- and intraobserver reliability for the presence of microbleeds by using 3D T2*-weighted imaging at 1.5T and moderate-to-good reliability by using dual-echo T2*-weighted imaging at 7T. For the number of microbleeds, the reliability was better; it was moderate at 1.5T and good to very good at 7T. Overall, we found an increased reliability for both presence and number of microbleeds at 7T compared with 1.5T. Cerebral microbleeds were detected in more patients at 7T than at 1.5T. Furthermore, the number of microbleeds detected was higher at 7T.. Besides the detection of microbleeds in more patients and a higher number of microbleeds at 7T, the reliability of the detection also improves. Compared with 1.5T, both inter- and intraobserver reliability improved at 7T. This might be due to the higher resolution, increased SNR, and the use of the dual- echo sequence at 7T. Recently, we showed that the TE1 image provides a good contrast of the dark ...

In addition to directly binding to toxic beta amyloid and preventing plaque formation, curcumin has been shown to have at least seven other mechanisms that minimize the formation of beta amyloid. (These are outlined in Table 1.) All eight of these mechanisms are likely to be at work in an experiment in which specialized microscopy was used to study beta amyloid plaques in a mouse model of Alzheimers. This study demonstrated that curcumin enters the brain and then binds specifically to plaques, reducing their size by up to 30%.9 ...

Irvine, Calif.- A small amount of bleeding in the brain seems to be common among older individuals, according to a UC Irvine study. Neurologist Dr. Mark Fisher and neuropathologist Dr. Ronald Kim found that cerebral microbleeds are highly prevalent in the aging brain - and not primarily products of stroke-related injury, hypertension or neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimers, as had been thought. "Prior work relied on brain imaging to show cerebral microbleeds," Fisher said. "But in this study, deep regions of the brain were closely examined under a microscope, and nearly all subjects had evidence of small areas of bleeding." Results appear online in the journal Stroke . Fisher, Kim and colleagues at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center studied postmortem brain specimens from 33 individuals, ranging in age from 71 to 105, with no history of stroke. Cerebral microbleeds were identified in 22 cases - all occurring in capillaries, the small blood vessels of the brain. This is a substantially higher ...

The connection between COPD and cerebral small vessel disease was suggested by two earlier studies, but the connection between COPD and cerebral microbleeds, the location of which can help elucidate underlying disease mechanisms, has not been studied," said researchers Lies Lahousse, PhD, of the Department of Respiratory Medicine at Ghent University Hospital in Belgium and Bruno Stricker, PhD, of the Department of Epidemiology at Erasmus Medical Center in Rotterdam, the Netherlands. "In the current study, we found, for the first time, that COPD increases the risk of cerebral microbleeds in deep or infratentorial brain regions, not only in a cross-sectional analysis but also in a longitudinal analysis in subjects without microbleeds at baseline.". Microbleeds in deep (deep gray matter of the basal ganglia and thalamus and white matter of the corpus callosum, internal, external, and extreme capsule) or infratentorial (brainstem and cerebellum) locations are suggestive of hypertensive or ...
