"based on these results, one is led to consider a simple metabolic deficiency model for AD; amyloid I-42 blockade of the PDH multienzyme complex is the source of amyloid toxicity and leads to loss of bioenergetic potential and neurotransmitter production, which ultimately leads to neuronal death.
It allows the assessment of mitochondrial function in an integrated cellular system, in a physiological environment: normal intracellular position and assembly, preserved interactions with cytoskeleton, nucleus and endoplasmic reticulum, intact multienzyme system of intracellular energy transfer.
Regarding recommendations for nutritional treatment, the Canadian Consensus (21) proposes that patients should be encouraged to eat balanced and nutritious meals at regular times, maintain good hydration, take multienzyme along with meals when associated with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS), use supplements when needed for treatment.
Further, nanoceria has also been shown to have multienzyme mimetic activities such as superoxide dismutase, superoxide oxidase, catalase and oxidase and because of this property, nanoceria are capable of regenerating their antioxidant activity [11,14-16].
