Alzheimer's disease facts

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

Alzheimer’s An Infectious Disease Neurodegenerative diseases are the fastest-growing causes of death around the world. The mismanagement of infectious waste is contributing to the epidemic. Dr. Stanley Prusiner earned a Nobel Prize in 1997 for his pioneering research on deadly prions—an infectious form of protein that connects a deadly spectrum disease called transmissible spongiform encephalopathy […]

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 […]

Neurodegenerative Disease Editor’s Note: On September 9, 2015 additional research adds to the evidence that suggests that Alzheimer’s disease is a transmissible disease. Scientists have shown that tissues can transmit symptoms of the disease between animals. A new study published in the journal Nature raises additional concern about the transmissibility of Alzheimer’s disease between people and between species. […]

Book Benefits Alzheimer’s Disease Research Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease and other forms of neurodegenerative disease are collectively becoming the leading cause of death around the world. Alzheimer’s disease alone is killing 50-100 million people now. Millions more will contract the disease this year, while just as many will go undiagnosed and misdiagnosed. The vast majority of cases are preventable. […]

The Prion Spectrum Researchers at Yale University have completed a molecular model for Alzheimer’s disease by identifying a protein that plays a key role in its onset. The study showed that when the activity of this protein is blocked by an existing drug, mice engineered as models for human Alzheimer’s disease recover their memories. Alzheimer’s […]

Numerous Causes Triggering Neurodegenerative Disease A new government-funded report confirms what advocacy groups have been warning for years: The number of people in the USA with Alzheimer’s disease will almost triple by 2050, straining the health care system and taxing the health of caregivers. Numbers are projected to rise from about 5 million now to 13.8 […]

Prion Disease Impacts Most Mammals Not surprisingly, mad cow disease, the medical term Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE), has been rampant in the U.S. for decades.  The human form of Mad Cow is Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD).  The USDA and FDA have done a very good job of keeping this under wraps, as well as displaying a […]

The Prion Hypothesis Many factors, including genetics, can contribute to the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. However, a deadly protein called a prion (PREE-on) also is contributing to the rapid spread of the disease. People and animals with prion disease are contagious and caregivers and family members are vulnerable to transmission. People with prion disease spread […]

Mismanagement Contributing To Epidemic It’s estimated that more than 44 million people around the world today are in the grasp of Alzheimer’s disease and its deadly spiral. That number is expected to triple or more within 25 years. The medical world knows very little about this family of neurodegenerative diseases, which includes Alzheimer’s disease, Huntington’s, Parkinson’s […]
