Immunotherapy for Stroke and Cognition in a Cerebral Amyloid Angiopathy Animal Model

Cerebrovascular dysfunction is a fundamental part of the pathology of several neurodegenerative diseases and rated as one of the most prominent cause for dementia. Cerebral amyloid angiopathy (CAA) results in intra-parenchymal and subarachnoid bleeding, which is caused by cerebrovascular amyloid deposits and multiple infarcts, and can lead to hemorrhagic stroke and cognitive impairment (Greenberg et […] Read More >

Novel specific disease-modifying PERK activator for Huntington’s disease

There is no efficient therapy at present for Huntington’s disease (HD) nor for any other neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases. No disease-modifying approaches exist. Gene therapy-based clinical trials have failed so far, highlighting the need for other approaches. These include the recent interruption of antisense oligonucleotide clinical trials for HD. Background• Endoplasmic reticulum (ER) […] Read More >

Targeting Human Brain Cells With Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV) for a Prospective Therapeutic Approach

The AAV therapeutic approach for various central nervous system (CNS) illnesses has been rapidly growing. Unfortunately, existing present technologies utilize AAV administration that is injected locally into the brain. This process requires a high level of expertise and is not applicable in more diffused brain targets like cortex and stiratum. Systemic administration of AAV vectors through […] Read More >

Homocysteine fibrillar assemblies display crosstalk with Alzheimer’s disease amyloid polypeptide

High levels of homocysteine (Hcy) are reported as a risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Correspondingly, inborn hyperhomocysteinemia is associated with an increased predisposition to the development of dementia in later stages of life. Furthermore, despite the apparent association between protein aggregation and AD, attempts to develop a therapy that targets explicitly this process have […] Read More >

Development of Alzheimer Disease therapy based on counteracting the pathological effects of ApoE4

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common cause of dementia and is the outcome of progressive brain cells death. Due to the disorder’s heterogeneity and in view of the variety of pathological mechanisms inducing the disease    we have undertaken an innovative – science based (Animal model) approach, which is presented here. Our unique approach […] Read More >

Glioblastoma Regression by Regulating Astrocytes’ Immunometabolic Signaling

Malignant brain tumors are the cause of a disproportionate level of morbidity and mortality among cancer patients, an unfortunate statistic that has remained constant for decades. Despite considerable advances in the molecular characterization of these tumors, targeting the cancer cells has yet to produce significant advances in treatment OUR SOLUTIONAn alternative strategy is to target […] Read More >

New MicroRNAs as Candidates for Depression Therapy

Major depressive disorder (MDD) is a complex, common, and recurrent mental disorder (1). The current first-line treatment for MDD is selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which are antidepressant drugs that block serotonin reuptake. Two microRNA (miRNAs) molecules namely miR-30b-5p and miR-101a-3p were found to be downregulated in the raphe nuclei (RN) of mice following chronic […] Read More >

Research topic: The research in our laboratory is focused on the investigation of glial cell and to clarify their role in neurological diseases. We suggest that targeting glia activation in different pathological scenarios may allow us to define common pathways to further understand the role of glia in neuroprotection . We are using three models: 1) […] Read More >

Prof. Gazit Ehud

The central dogma in the study of protein folding suggests that the thermodynamically-favorable state of proteins under physiological conditions is their folded one. However, there are number of cases in which the favorable states of proteins are rather unfolded, partially folded (e.g., “molten globular”), or misfolded (e.g., nonspecific aggregates or amyloid fibrils). These observations lead […] Read More >
