Deadly Proteins Permanently Contaminate Medical Equipment and More The seeds of Alzheimer’s disease may have been transmitted along with human growth hormone into eight British patients treated decades ago, according to a study published Thursday in Nature. If supported by further research, the findings imply Alzheimer’s disease could potentially be transmitted via close contact with the

President Bush Had Parkinson’s-Like Symptoms George H.W. Bush, the 41st President of the United States, passed away today. The two-time vice president under Ronald Reagan lived with vascular parkinsonism for several years. At age 94, Bush was the longest living president in history and an inspiration for others with neurodegenerative disease. Last week also saw the passing

Reforms Can Save Lives Neurodegenerative disease and autism have been surging around the world for the past 30 years. A man-made environmental disaster is creating a public health disaster that’s still unfolding in many ways in most nations. Neurotoxins are driving the epidemic more than age–in some countries more than others. Teenagers are now dying of Creutzfeldt-Jakob

Study Reflects Racial Disparity and Dementia Neurodegenerative disease has been surging around the world for the past 30 years. It’s the fastest-growing cause of death in the world and it will soon be the leading cause of death. Alzheimer’s disease alone is taking the lives of 50-100 million people around the world now. The epidemic is more

Antibodies Can Slow Progression Of Brain Disease Alzheimer’s disease is one of the deadliest, costliest, and demanding diseases in the world. It’s the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Unfortunately, no drugs have been developed to prevent or reverse the brain disease. A promising new medication known as BAN2401 might offer hope, while helping redirect

Researchers Identify Tau Proteins As Prions Neurodegenerative disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. There are more questions than answers surrounding this global epidemic, but researchers are connecting the dots to deadly proteins that are killing many mammals, including humans. The destructive progression of Alzheimer’s disease follows the growth and spread of

Infectious Proteins Cause Many Brain-Wasting Diseases Prion research is still unfolding, but researchers have successfully created a synthetic version, which could help solve some riddles. Neurodegenerative disease , including Alzheimer’s disease, is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Autism also continues to surge. Some parts of the world are impacted more than others.

Concussions Contribute To Neurodegenerative Disorders By Nicholas Bakalar, New York Times A traumatic brain injury, even a mild concussion, increases the risk for Parkinson’s disease, a new study reports. Researchers identified all patients diagnosed with T.B.I. in a Veterans Health Administration database — 162,935 men and women — and matched them with the same number

Spouses Of Those With Brain Disease More Likely To Contract Brain Disease Millions of people are becoming caregivers for friends and family members with Alzheimer’s disease. It’s a silent epidemic that’s creating family crises around the world. In addition to the shock of the sudden dependency, at least some caregivers (family members and professionals) are
