Dental Plaque Related To Mental Plaque There are several factors that can promote Alzheimer’s disease, including genetics, diet, exercise, head trauma and exposure to neurotoxins. However, researchers have provided the strongest evidence to date that a bacterium involved in periodontitis contributes to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease is characterized by the salient inflammatory […]

Test Reflects Risks From Blood Transfusions A simple blood test reliably detects signs of brain damage in people on the path to developing Alzheimer’s disease – even before they show signs of confusion and memory loss, according to a new study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis and the German Center for […]

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 […]

Tau Proteins Are Infectious 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 toxic protein […]

Prion Science Still Unfolding Neurodegenerative disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Prion disease is responsible for the vast majority of the surge in humans and other mammals. Professor Goedert, a program leader at the MRC Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, believes our best hope of fighting dementia requires predicting who […]

Answers To Alzheimer’s Begin With The Truth President Ronald Reagan designated November as National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month in 1983. At the time, fewer than 2 million Americans had Alzheimer’s; today, the number of people diagnosed (and still alive) with the disease has soared to nearly 5.4 million. The X factor is the millions who […]

Hope Against Neurodegenerative Disease Alzheimer’s disease drug treatments have met failure after failure. Many people have decided that prevention is the only hope. Unfortunately, a U.S. panel of experts claims that prevention might be just as elusive as a cure. From physical activity to avoiding high blood pressure to brain training, a 17-member committee assembled by […]

Acidity Promotes Alzheimer’s Disease Prion diseases are scary, incurable and fatal. They first gained notoriety when cows were infected by prion proteins and, in turn, infected people. Fervor surrounding mad cow disease resulted in the U.S. banning imports of beef from the European Union for 15 years. New research led by Michigan State University and […]

Prions and Alzheimer’s Disease ProMIS Neurosciences highlighted the growing mountain of research, which calls out Amyloid-beta and Tau prions (proteins), as the root cause for Alzheimer’s disease. The company released a white paper today compiling the scientific data as the basis for new treatments. In the white paper, the company provided a concise overview of empirical […]

Arginine and Alzheimer’s Disease The study—published in the Journal of Neuroscience—is attracting national attention for proposing a new potential cause of Alzheimer’s disease. Duke researchers, who discovered a way to make the brains of mice respond to Alzheimer’s disease similarly to humans, found that in mice with the disease, immune system cells meant to protect […]
