Protecting Neurons Could Prevent Depression and Cognitive Deterioration Caused by Alzheimer’s

alzheimershelp - November 8, 2017

In an animal model of Alzheimer’s disease, a compound was able to prevent brain cells from dying; this may potentially lead to alternative treatment for individuals suffering from Alzheimer’s due to depression, memory loss, and progressively impaired cognitive ability. The journal Biological Psychiatry just published a report describing how an experimental compound known as P7C3-S243 […]

Alzheimer’s Prevention Drink Fails During Clinical Trial

alzheimershelp - November 1, 2017

That has been no strong evidence to support that a nutrient drink sold online in the UK helps slows Alzheimer’s disease in its early stages, researchers claim. A recent trial revealed patients who consumed Souvenaid did not help aid memory loss and cognitive thinking. Authors of the paper say that larger studies are required to show […]

Protein Responsible for Alzheimer’s Could Come From Other Body Parts

alzheimershelp - October 31, 2017

New research has revealed that amyloid beta, the protein that’s prevalent in Alzheimer’s diseased brains, could have originated from other body parts. The study published in the journal Molecular Psychiatry explains scientists surgically attached mice to each other for months to confirm that amyloid beta found in the bloodstream can go to the brain and creates common […]

New Study Reveals The Brain’s Protective Mechanism Against Alzheimer’s

alzheimershelp - October 28, 2017

“Buildups of “clumpy” proteins in the brain are well-known hallmarks of Alzheimer’s, but not everyone who has them goes on to develop this neurodegenerative disease. Why is that? New research investigates.” Researchers know that bunches of a protein named “tau” and plaques of beta-amyloid indicate precursors of the Alzheimer’s disease. However, between 30 and 50 […]
