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 […]

Caregivers At Risk Neurodegenerative disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. Alzheimer’s disease alone is taking the lives of 50-100 million people now. Despite millions of Alzheimer’s-related fatalities annually, experts suggest that the prevalence of the disease among the living will quadruple by 2050, if not sooner. Some advocates are warning that the surging epidemic […]

Neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer’s disease, is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. It’s getting worse every day thanks to mismanagement and misinformation. Infectious proteins known as prions are involved with most forms of neurodegenerative disease. Prion […]

Genetics Increase Vulnerability By Joana Fernandes, PhD Researchers reviewed the novel mutations found in genes associated with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in Asia, arguing that identifying disease-associated mutations greatly contributes to the knowledge of the cause and effect of the disease. This information is also essential to develop preventive and therapeutic strategies. Early-Onset Alzheimer’s Disease In Asian Countries Alzheimer’s disease can be […]

Nutrition The Best Treatment Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, ALS and other forms of brain disease are the fastest-growing causes of death in the world. Most forms of brain disease are preventable, transmissible and treatable with targeted nutrition. That’s the theme for a new book that shines light on the global epidemic of brain disease. According to Gary Chandler, author of Alzheimer’s […]
