Neurodegeneration is among the most crucial topics of the research now and within the coming twenty first century. Alzheimer's disorder is the best reason behind dementia within the aged humans and Parkinson's affliction is likely one of the significant neurologic problems with the superiority among 1 and 2/1 000 inhabitants in complex international locations. Many others are struggling with intractable neurodegener­ ative problems similar to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, Huntington's ailment, or spinocerebellar degeneration. No actually powerful remedy is accessible for any of those neurodegenerative problems aside from Parkinson's illness; even in Parkinson's affliction, nonetheless it really is very unlikely to decelerate the ailment method with the at the moment on hand remedy. it really is urgently had to improve new potent strategy to halt or decelerate the illness technique in each one of these problems. fresh increase within the molecular organic and molecular genetic strategy has introduced us nice development within the knowing of etiology and pathogenesis of those issues, yet nonetheless it isn't identified how neurons are going to die in those problems. To discover the query, mutual cooperation and alternate of principles among uncomplicated scientists and scientific peoples are of extreme importance.

1988). In neurohistopathology, age-related plaque scores are applied to describe the severity of Alzheimer pathology. These scores describe a threshold of pathology at which dementia is usually evident and consequently a final diagnosis of AD is based on them (Fig. 1). , 1991) or on counts of SP and NFT (Khachaturian, 1985). , 1988). This gives rise to the question of whether SP and NFT truly represent the pathological substrate of dementia or are merely an epiphenomenon of disease. , 1991). , 1992) and may be common to a variety of dementing disease processes.

S100~ protein is a calcium binding protein that is not only expressed by astrocytes in the eNS, but also in many other tissues including the eye, thymus, spleen and lymph nodes. Despite this tissue distribution, which was expected to induce a firm state of self-tolerance to S100~, the Lewis rat mounts a strong T cell response to this auto antigen.
