Based on our hypothesis about Ultra-Early Phase pathology that HMGB1 induces neurite degeneration via TLR4-pSer46MARCKS pathway, we developed antibody therapy against HMGB1 to inhibit the damage propagation from neuron to neuron in AD.
For example, studies from multiple laboratories have demonstrated that the MEK (MAP kinase kinase) inhibitor U0126 decreases neurite length in PC12 cells in a concentration-dependent manner (Kano et al.

However, it has been demonstrated that HMGB1 is also secreted by living cells in the central nervous system where it is involved in a number of neuronal functions such as differentiation, cell survival, and neurite outgrowth [14,17,35,36].
24) A lab study revealed that taurine restores normal neurite growth in nerves exposed to toxic chemicals, largely through its protective effects against chemical stresses.
