Detection of protein aggregates in brain and cerebrospinal fluid derived from multiple sclerosis patients

Studies of the properties of soluble oligomer species of amyloidogenic proteins, derived from different proteins with little sequence homology, have indicated that they share a common structure and may share similar pathogenic mechanisms. Amyloid ß, tau protein, as well as amyloid precursor protein normally associated with Alzheimer’s disease ...


Cerebral glycolysis: a century of persistent misunderstanding and misconception

Since its discovery in 1780, lactate (lactic acid) has been blamed for almost any illness outcome in which its levels are elevated. Beginning in the mid-1980s, studies on both muscle and brain tissues, have suggested that lactate plays a role in bioenergetics. However, great skepticism and, at times, outright antagonism has been exhibited by many ...


Young men’s shame about their desire for other men predicts risky sex and moderates the knowledge – self-efficacy link

Background: Nationally, HIV incidence is rising rapidly among young (18–24 years old) men who have sex with men (YMSM). Knowledge of safer sex generally enhances self-efficacy for safer sex, an important predictor of safer-sex behaviors. Recent findings suggest that a strong negative social emotion ...


Regulation of red cell life-span, erythropoiesis, senescence and clearance

Human red blood cells are formed mainly in the bone marrow and are believed to have an average life span of approximately 120 days. However, is it true for all red blood cells? What are the changes associated with red cell maturation, adulthood and senescence? What are the determinants of red cell life span and clearance? What are the mechanisms in control ...
