Interaction Information:

Comment Caffeine modulates hippocampal neuro-inflammatory and oxidative stress markers in THY-Tau22 mice. Markers of innate immunity (CD68, CD45, TLR2) and astrocytes (GFAP) as well as several pro-inflammatory cytokines (CCl4, CCl5 and TNFalpha) were significantly upregulated in the hippocampus of THY-Tau22 as compared to WT animals.
