Preventative and Therapeutic Treatment of Resveratrol on Alzheimer’s Disease using CL2006 and CL4176 C. elegan models Bradford Greaves
The APP Processing Senile Plaques Modified from Laurén et al., Nature (2009) Figure 1 Resveratrol Promotes Clearance of Alzheimer’s Disease Amyloid- Peptides, Marambaud 2005 The β amyloid peptide can act as a modular aggregation domain, Link 2008
Alzheimer’s Disease cont.
Purpose To preventatively and therapeutically treat Alzheimer’s Disease with resveratrol using CL2006 and CL4176 C. elegan models
Hypothesis Alternate Hypothesis: Both preventive and therapeutic treatment of resveratrol on CL2006 will lead to a decrease in amyloid beta production and for CL4176 there will be a delay of the onset of paralysis. Null Hypothesis: There will be no change in amyloid beta production nor paralysis with the addition of resveratrol.
