A previous study showed that Bombycis excrementum, the herb that is present in the largest proportion in the composition of OSS, protects hippocampal neurons and ameliorates memory impairment in mice in which AD-like pathological features are induced by intrahippocampal injection of A[beta][O.sub.1-42] .
Water extract from silkworm feces (Bombycis excrementum), for example, was shown to protect hippocampal neurons and memory impairment induced by A[beta][O.sub.1-42] in our previous report .
In addition, I posted my mailing address (something no webcammer is ever advised to do), so that "fans" could send donations of a hundred dollars and receive, in gratitude, a self-published chapbook of my poems, humbly titled Veritas et Excrementum
. Pos ting my address meant that donations came more easily, but also that, if someone really wanted to, they could find me.
