Testosterone reduces neuronal secretion of Alzheimer's beta-amyloid peptides
We report here that treatment with testosterone increases the secretion of the non-amyloidogenic APP fragment, sAPP, and decreases the secretion of A peptides from N2a cells and rat primary cerebro-cortical neurons. These results raise the possibility that testosterone supplementation in elderly men may be protective in the treatment of AD [Alzheimer's Disease].
[We now have accumulating evidence, as with women and estrogen, for the need to utilize testosterone therapy in the aging male for many of the same reasons: heart, bones, mood, purpose, and now cognitive, neuronal and brain preservation - Ed]
Recent press report from the National Academy of Science on the upcoming book titled To Err is Human.
Date: Nov. 29, 1999
The human cost of medical
errors is high. Based on the findings of one major study, medical errors kill some 44,000 people in
U.S. hospitals each year. Another study puts the
number much higher, at 98,000. Even using the lower estimate,
more people die from medical mistakes each year than from highway
accidents, breast cancer, or AIDS.
