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)

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.

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.

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.
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.

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.
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.
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.

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.

Cerebral amyloid angiopathy is a pathogenic lesion in Alzheimer's disease due to a novel presenilin 1 mutation. (1/15)

The dense-cored plaques are considered the pathogenic type of amyloid deposition in Alzheimer's disease brains because of their predominant association with dystrophic neurites. Nevertheless, in > 90% of cases of Alzheimer's disease amyloid is also deposited in cerebral blood vessel walls (congophilic amyloid angiopathy; CAA) but its role in Alzheimer's disease pathogenesis remains enigmatic. Here, we report a family (family GB) in which early-onset Alzheimer's disease was caused by a novel presenilin 1 mutation (L282V). This was unusually severe CAA reminiscent of the Flemish amyloid precursor protein (A692G) mutation we reported previously, which causes Alzheimer's disease and/or cerebral haemorrhages. In family GB, however, the disease presented as typical progressive Alzheimer's disease in the absence of strokes or stroke-like episodes. Similarly, neuroimaging studies and neuropathological examination favoured a degenerative over a vascular dementia. Interestingly, an immunohistochemical study revealed that, similar to causing dense-cored amyloid plaques, CAA also appeared capable of instigating a strong local dystrophic and inflammatory reaction. This was suggested by the observed neuronal loss, the presence of tau- and ubiquitin-positive neurites, micro- and astrogliosis, and complement activation. Together, these data suggest that, like the dense-cored neuritic plaques, CAA might represent a pathogenic lesion that contributes significantly to the progressive neurodegeneration that occurs in Alzheimer's disease.  (+info)

Vitamin E but not 17beta-estradiol protects against vascular toxicity induced by beta-amyloid wild type and the Dutch amyloid variant. (2/15)

Amyloid beta-peptide (Abeta) fibril deposition on cerebral vessels produces cerebral amyloid angiopathy that appears in the majority of Alzheimer's disease patients. An early onset of a cerebral amyloid angiopathy variant called hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis of the Dutch type is caused by a point mutation in Abeta yielding Abeta(Glu22-->Gln). The present study addresses the effect of amyloid fibrils from both wild-type and mutated Abeta on vascular cells, as well as the putative protective role of antioxidants on amyloid angiopathy. For this purpose, we studied the cytotoxicity induced by Abeta(1-40 Glu22-->Gln) and Abeta(1-40 wild-type) fibrils on human venule endothelial cells and rat aorta smooth muscle cells. We observed that Abeta(Glu22-->Gln) fibrils are more toxic for vascular cells than the wild-type fibrils. We also evaluated the cytotoxicity of Abeta fibrils bound with acetylcholinesterase (AChE), a common component of amyloid deposits. Abeta(1-40 wild-type)-AChE fibrillar complexes, similar to neuronal cells, resulted in an increased toxicity on vascular cells. Previous reports showing that antioxidants are able to reduce the toxicity of Abeta fibrils on neuronal cells prompted us to test the effect of vitamin E, vitamin C, and 17beta-estradiol on vascular damage induced by Abeta(wild-type) and Abeta(Glu22-->Gln). Our data indicate that vitamin E attenuated significantly the Abeta-mediated cytotoxicity on vascular cells, although 17beta-estradiol and vitamin C failed to inhibit the cytotoxicity induced by Abeta fibrils.  (+info)

RAGE (yin) versus LRP (yang) balance regulates alzheimer amyloid beta-peptide clearance through transport across the blood-brain barrier. (3/15)

Accumulation of amyloid beta-peptide (Abeta) in the central nervous system (CNS) may initiate pathogenic cascades mediating neurovascular and neuronal dysfunctions associated with the development of cerebral beta-amyloidosis and cognitive decline in patients with Alzheimer disease (AD) and with related familial cerebrovascular disorders. Whether Abeta-related pathology in the CNS is reversible or not and what key therapeutic targets are controlling Abeta/amyloid levels in the aging brain remain debatable. In this article, we summarize recent evidence why the receptor for advanced glycation end products and low-density lipoprotein receptor related protein 1 in the vascular CNS barriers are critical for regulation of Abeta homeostasis in the CNS and how altered activities in these 2 receptors at the blood-brain barrier may contribute to the CNS Abeta accumulation resulting in neuroinflammation, disconnect between the cerebral blood flow and metabolism, altered synaptic transmission, neuronal injury, and amyloid deposition into parenchymal and neurovascular lesions. We briefly discuss the potential of advanced glycation end products and low-density lipoprotein receptor related protein 1-based therapeutic strategies to control brain Abeta in animal models of AD and ultimately in patients with AD and related familial cerebrovascular beta-amyloidoses.  (+info)

Reducing cerebral microvascular amyloid-beta protein deposition diminishes regional neuroinflammation in vasculotropic mutant amyloid precursor protein transgenic mice. (4/15)

Cerebral microvascular amyloid-beta (Abeta) protein deposition is emerging as an important contributory factor to neuroinflammation and dementia in Alzheimer's disease and related familial cerebral amyloid angiopathy disorders. In particular, cerebral microvascular amyloid deposition, but not parenchymal amyloid, is more often correlated with dementia. Recently, we generated transgenic mice (Tg-SwDI) expressing the vasculotropic Dutch (E693Q)/Iowa (D694N) mutant human Abeta precursor protein in brain that accumulate abundant cerebral microvascular fibrillar amyloid deposits. In the present study, our aim was to assess how the presence or absence of fibrillar Abeta deposition in the cerebral microvasculature affects neuroinflammation in Tg-SwDI mice. Using Tg-SwDI mice bred onto an apolipoprotein E gene knock-out background, we found a strong reduction of fibrillar cerebral microvascular Abeta deposition, which was accompanied by a sharp decrease in microvascular-associated neuroinflammatory cells and interleukin-1beta levels. Quantitative immunochemical measurements showed that this reduction of the neuroinflammation occurred in the absence of lowering the levels of total Abeta40/Abeta42 or soluble Abeta oligomers in brain. These findings suggest that specifically reducing cerebral microvascular fibrillar Abeta deposition, in the absence of lowering either the total amount of Abeta or soluble Abeta oligomers in brain, may be sufficient to ameliorate microvascular amyloid-associated neuroinflammation.  (+info)

Cerebral microvascular amyloid beta protein deposition induces vascular degeneration and neuroinflammation in transgenic mice expressing human vasculotropic mutant amyloid beta precursor protein. (5/15)

Cerebral vascular amyloid beta-protein (Abeta) deposition, also known as cerebral amyloid angiopathy, is a common pathological feature of Alzheimer's disease. Additionally, several familial forms of cerebral amyloid angiopathy exist including the Dutch (E22Q) and Iowa (D23N) mutations of Abeta. Increasing evidence has associated cerebral microvascular amyloid deposition with neuroinflammation and dementia in these disorders. We recently established a transgenic mouse model (Tg-SwDI) that expresses human vasculotropic Dutch/Iowa mutant amyloid beta-protein precursor in brain. Tg-SwDI mice were shown to develop early-onset deposition of Abeta exhibiting high association with cerebral microvessels. Here we present quantitative temporal analysis showing robust and progressive accumulation of cerebral microvascular fibrillar Abeta accompanied by decreased cerebral vascular densities, the presence of apoptotic cerebral vascular cells, and cerebral vascular cell loss in Tg-SwDI mice. Abundant neuroinflammatory reactive astrocytes and activated microglia strongly associated with the cerebral microvascular fibrillar Abeta deposits. In addition, Tg-SwDI mouse brain exhibited elevated levels of the inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1beta and -6. Together, these studies identify the Tg-SwDI mouse as a unique model to investigate selective accumulation of cerebral microvascular amyloid and the associated neuroinflammation.  (+info)

Inhibition of familial cerebral amyloid angiopathy mutant amyloid beta-protein fibril assembly by myelin basic protein. (6/15)

Deposition of fibrillar amyloid beta-protein (Abeta) in the brain is a prominent pathological feature of Alzheimer disease and related disorders, including familial forms of cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA). Mutant forms of Abeta, including Dutch- and Iowa-type Abeta, which are responsible for familial CAA, deposit primarily as fibrillar amyloid along the cerebral vasculature and are either absent or present only as diffuse non-fibrillar plaques in the brain parenchyma. Despite the lack of parenchymal fibril formation in vivo, these CAA mutant Abeta peptides exhibit a markedly increased rate and extent of fibril formation in vitro compared with wild-type Abeta. Based on these conflicting observations, we sought to determine whether brain parenchymal factors that selectively interact with and modulate CAA mutant Abeta fibril assembly exist. Using a combination of immunoaffinity chromatography and mass spectrometry, we identified myelin basic protein (MBP) as a prominent brain parenchymal factor that preferentially binds to CAA mutant Abeta compared with wild-type Abeta. Surface plasmon resonance measurements confirmed that MBP bound more tightly to Dutch/Iowa CAA double mutant Abeta than to wild-type Abeta. Using a combination of biochemical and ultrastructural techniques, we found that MBP inhibited the fibril assembly of CAA mutant Abeta. Together, these findings suggest a possible role for MBP in regulating parenchymal fibrillar Abeta deposition in familial CAA.  (+info)

Lipoprotein receptor-related protein-1 mediates amyloid-beta-mediated cell death of cerebrovascular cells. (7/15)

Inefficient clearance of A beta, caused by impaired blood-brain barrier crossing into the circulation, seems to be a major cause of A beta accumulation in the brain of late-onset Alzheimer's disease patients and hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis Dutch type. We observed association of receptor for advanced glycation end products, CD36, and low-density lipoprotein receptor (LDLR) with cerebral amyloid angiopathy in both Alzheimer's disease and hereditary cerebral hemorrhage with amyloidosis Dutch type brains and increased low-density lipoprotein receptor-related protein-1 (LRP-1) expression by perivascular cells in cerebral amyloid angiopathy. We investigated if these A beta receptors are involved in A beta internalization and in A beta-mediated cell death of human cerebrovascular cells and astrocytes. Expression of both the LRP-1 and LDLR by human brain pericytes and leptomeningeal smooth muscle cells, but not by astrocytes, increased on incubation with A beta. Receptor-associated protein specifically inhibited A beta-mediated up-regulation of LRP-1, but not of LDLR, and receptor-associated protein also decreased A beta internalization and A beta-mediated cell death. We conclude that especially LRP-1 and, to a minor extent, LDLR are involved in A beta internalization by and A beta-mediated cell death of cerebral perivascular cells. Although perivascular cells may adapt their A beta internalization capacity to the levels of A beta present, saturated LRP-1/LDLR-mediated uptake of A beta results in degeneration of perivascular cells.  (+info)

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…
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 ...
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,. ...

Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) is a small-vessel disorder associated with progressive amyloid deposition in the walls of cortical and leptomeningeal vessels. Sporadic forms are more common than inherited familial forms.. CAA is a major cause of lobar symptomatic intracerebral haemorrhage, transient focal neurologic episodes in the elderly, and cognitive impairment. Transient focal neurological episodes include both positive migraine aura-like (spreading paraesthesias and/or positive visual phenomena) and negative TIA-like neurological symptoms, and may be caused by superficial cortical siderosis or convexal subarachnoid haemorrhage. These episodes are associated with a high early risk of symptomatic intracerebral haemorrhage. ...
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, ...
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 ...

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 ...

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 ...
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. Vascular injury secondary to cerebrovascular ...
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 ...
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 ...
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.
Gene therapy is an approach to treating disease that uses genetic information-DNA-as a drug. Monogenic diseases, where a single genetic mutation results in a nonfunctional protein and disease-causing agent, are excellent candidates for treatment by gene therapy. A virus can be engineered to carry the corrected form of the mutant gene instead of its own viral genes. These engineered viruses, called vectors, still retain … Continue reading A Cure in Sight. ...

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 ...
Pathological protein deposits linked to Alzheimer's disease and cerebral amyloid angiopathy can be triggered by peripheral administration of pathogenic misfolded protein fragments outside the brain. This shows a new study done by researchers at the Hertie Institute of Clinical Brain Research and the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE).

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 ...
Two mutations in the ITM2B gene have been found to cause a condition called hereditary cerebral amyloid angiopathy. When this condition is caused by mutations in the ITM2B gene, it is characterized by movement problems and a decline in intellectual function (dementia). ITM2B gene mutations cause two forms of the condition called familial British dementia and familial Danish dementia, named for the regions where the conditions were first diagnosed. The ITM2B gene mutation that causes the British type results in the production of a protein that is longer than normal. The ITM2B protein normally has a stop signal that indicates where to stop the protein sequence so that all the ITM2B proteins that are made are the same. The mutation that causes the British type changes the stop signal so that more length is added to the protein. This mutation is written as Ter267Arg or X267R. The mutation that causes the Danish type is similar, but instead of changing the stop signal, extra pieces of DNA are added ...
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
Neuropathological follow-up of patients with Alzheimers disease (AD) who participated in the first clinical trial of Amyloid-β 42 (Aβ42) immunization (AN1792, Elan Pharmaceuticals) has shown that immunization can induce removal of Aβ42 and Aβ40 from plaques, whereas analysis of the cerebral vessels has shown increased levels of these Aβ peptides in cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA). Aβ43 has been less frequently studied in AD, but its aggregation propensity and neurotoxic properties suggest it may have an important pathogenic role. In the current study we show by using immunohistochemistry that in unimmunized AD patients Aβ43 is a frequent constituent of plaques (6.0% immunostained area), similar to Aβ42 (3.9% immunostained area). Aβ43 immunostained area was significantly higher than that of Aβ40 (2.3%, p = 0.006). In addition, we show that Aβ43 is only a minor component of CAA in both parenchymal vessels (1.5 Aβ43-positive vessels per cm2 cortex vs. 5.3 Aβ42-positive vessels, p = 0.03,

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 ...
Self-assembly of the amyloid-β (Aβ) peptide into aggregates, from small oligomers to amyloid fibrils, is fundamentally linked with Alzheimers disease (AD). However, it is clear that not all forms of Aβ are equally harmful and that linking a specific aggregate to toxicity also depends on the assays and model systems used (Haass et al., J Biol. Chem 269:17741-17748, 1994; Borchelt et al., Neuron 17:1005-1013, 1996). Though a central postulate of the amyloid cascade hypothesis, there remain many gaps in our understanding regarding the links between Aβ deposition and neurodegeneration. In this study, we examined familial mutations of Aβ that increase aggregation and oligomerization, E22G and ΔE22, and induce cerebral amyloid angiopathy, E22Q and D23N. We also investigated synthetic mutations that stabilize dimerization, S26C, and a phospho-mimetic, S8E, and non-phospho-mimetic, S8A. To that end, we utilized BRI2-Aβ fusion technology and rAAV2/1-based somatic brain transgenesis in mice to selectively

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 ...
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 ...
