Institute of Neuropathology, Medical School of Hannover, Carl Neuberg Str 1, 30625 Hannover, Germany
Anticancer Res 23:3937-44. 2003....
- Locally reduced levels of acidic FGF lead to decreased expression of 28-kda calbindin and contribute to the selective vulnerability of the neurons in the entorhinal cortex in Alzheimer's diseaseV Thorns
Institute of Neuropathology, Medical School of Hannover, Germany
Neuropathology 21:203-11. 2001..The data imply that a reduced expression of aFGF in EC2 neurons of AD brains leads to lower levels of calbindin resulting in decreased neuroprotective capacity...
- Effects of IL6 and IL1beta on aFGF expression and excitotoxicity in NT2N cellsVeronika Thorns
Department of Neuropathology, Medical School of Hannover, Carl Neuberg Strasse 1, 30625 Hannover, Germany
J Neuroimmunol 127:22-9. 2002..These data suggest that (1) IL6 exerts protective functions by upregulating the expression of aFGF and (2) the IL6/IL1beta balance in the brain may regulate neuronal survival during neuropathological processes...
- Extracerebral subdural manifestation of Chester-Erdheim disease associated with a giant adenoma of the pituitaryV Thorns
Institute of Neuropathology, Hannover Medical School, Hannover, Germany
Clin Neuropathol 22:246-51. 2003..As to our knowledge this is the first detailed description of an exceptional case of intracranial CED presenting with strictly extracerebral/subdural tumor masses accompanied by a giant adenoma of the pituitary gland...
