- Alzheimer's disease (AD) is caused by abnormal metabolism of amyloid beta (A beta), leading to cognitive dysfunction. Carthamus tinctorius L. seed (CTS) and Taraxacum coreanum (TC) are attracted wide attention because of their potential property of alleviation of neurotoxicity; however, their combination therapy for synergistic effects have not yet been evaluated. We investigated the synergistic effects of CTS, TC, and their combination on the A beta(25-35)-infused mice. In the T-maze test and novel object recognition test, the combination improved the spatial memory and object recognitive capacity compared with their single treatments. In Morris water maze test, the combination groups performed better spatial memory, indicating a synergistically effect on improving learning and memory ability in A beta(25-35)-infused mice. We also investigated the A beta-related protein expressions, suggesting the combination administration attenuated amyloidogenesis by regulating the metabolism of A beta. Therefore, the combination might provide a positive synergistic effect on AD protection by metabolism of A beta.
