Alzheimer's disease prevention

Cannabidiol Has Neuroprotective, Anti-Inflammatory Benefits Neurodegenerative disease is the fastest-growing cause of death in the world. It will soon be the leading cause of death. Inflammation is a common denominator among the diverse list of neurodegenerative diseases. Marijuana derivatives have attracted special interest as a way to prevent brain disease and a treatment. Cannabidiol (CBD), […]

A Promising Treatment For Neurodegenerative Disease A diet containing compounds found in green tea and carrots reversed Alzheimer’s-like symptoms in mice genetically programmed to develop the disease, USC researchers announced. Researchers emphasize that the study, recently published in theJournal of Biological Chemistry, was in mice, and many mouse discoveries never translate into human treatments. Nevertheless, […]

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 […]

Antibodies Can Slow Progression 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 future research on […]

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 […]

Infectious Proteins and Brain Disease 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. A variety of […]

prion disease and Alzheimer's disease

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 […]

Tau, Amyloid Detection Researchers from Aberdeen have identified changes in the brains of those suffering early signs of Alzheimer’s disease. A University of Aberdeen study confirmed for the first time that two proteins, assumed to contribute to the disease process, are both present at very early stages of Alzheimer’s disease. Both are present in an area of the […]

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 […]
