In the second phase.
In the second phase, Weisman mechanisms of inflammation in the brain and A-beta role in the creation of the inflammatory response is to study. Weisman will examine the role of a group of receptors, which control both the function of the enzyme, which produces A-beta in the brain cells and regulates inflammation. By suppressing the function of of this receptor, Weisman hopes to identify new treatments minimize the A – beta production, and inflammation.
The next phase of the study includes three projects. Sun will study mechanisms whereby A-beta affects phospholipases, a group of enzymes that when activated, will destroy membranes in brain cells. Current evidence suggests that A-beta of these enzymes. Of these enzymes. (more…)
