New Drug Offers Hope In Alzheimer’s Disease Treatment

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 … Continue reading New Drug Offers Hope In Alzheimer’s Disease Treatment

Deadly Proteins Spark Onset Of Alzheimer’s Disease

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 … Continue reading Deadly Proteins Spark Onset Of Alzheimer’s Disease

Brain Researchers Create Synthetic Prion

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. A variety … Continue reading Brain Researchers Create Synthetic Prion

Tau Proteins Very Similar To Prions

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 … Continue reading Tau Proteins Very Similar To Prions

Key Proteins Found In Early Phases Of Alzheimer’s Disease

Tau, Amyloid Detection Could Improve Diagnostic Capabilities 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 … Continue reading Key Proteins Found In Early Phases Of Alzheimer’s Disease

Asians At Higher Risk For Dementia

DNA Analysis Reveals Key Genetic Mutations, Therapies By Joana Fernandes, PhD Researchers reviewed the novel mutations found in genes associated with early-onset Alzheimer’s disease in Asian countries, 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. The study, “Mutations, Associated With … Continue reading Asians At Higher Risk For Dementia

Alzheimer’s Disease Research Targets Prions

More Evidence That Prions Cause 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 … Continue reading Alzheimer’s Disease Research Targets Prions

Hallucinogen Offers Promise Against Alzheimer’s Disease

Neurogenesis A Possible Treatment For Alzheimer’s Disease Scientists have discovered that a hallucinogenic substance from the Amazon stimulates the birth of new brains cells and could lead to treatment for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease. The tea called ayahuasca, is also used a as traditional spiritual medicine in ceremonies in Peru. The Saint Pau Hospital … Continue reading Hallucinogen Offers Promise Against Alzheimer’s Disease

Deaths From Neurological Disease Rising Sharply

Neurodegenerative Disease The Fastest-Growing Cause Of Death By Dr. Russell Blaylock, M.D. A new study that was recently published in the journal Surgical Neurology International confirms what I wrote about several years ago — that the incidence of neurological disease and the deaths from these disorders has risen dramatically in the last few decades. This … Continue reading Deaths From Neurological Disease Rising Sharply

More Evidence That Parkinson’s A Transmissible Disease

Parkinson’s Disease Spreads With Help From Proteins In Parkinson’s disease, the protein alpha-synuclein aggregates within neurons of patients and appears to propagate across interconnected areas of the brain. How this happens remains largely unknown. It has been proposed that alpha-synuclein may behave like a prion–a pathological form of protein capable of changing the conformation of normal … Continue reading More Evidence That Parkinson’s A Transmissible Disease
