NO-donating aspirin; anti-inflammatory. Blocks inflammatory mediator production in isolated human monocytes (IC50 values are 0.07, 0.13, 0.15 and 0.18 μM for IL-1β, PGE2, IL-10 and TNF-α respectively). Decreases COX-2 expression (IC50 = 0.13 μM); disrupts proteasome-mediated degradation of iκB-α. Antiproliferative in HCT116 colon cancer cells; sensitizes drug-resistant ovarian tumor cells to cisplatin (Cat. No. 2251).

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a degenerative brain disease and the most common cause of dementia, affecting approximately 47 million people worldwide. Updated in 2015, this poster summarizes the structural and functional changes observed in the progression of this neurodegenerative disease, as well as classic AD drug targets.
Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.
