There Is Currently No Proven Way to Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease

alzheimershelp - December 21, 2017

Medical professionals and researchers have yet to prove that any treatment, therapy or brain training can help prevent dementias like Alzheimer’s disease, a lengthy new review concludes. No medications, over-the-counter remedies or brain exercise programs have been proven in sophisticated clinical trials to prevent dementia, researchers with the Minnesota Evidence-Based Practice Center in Minneapolis states after […]

Another Study Reveals Inflammation Accelerates Progression of Alzheimer’s Disease

alzheimershelp - December 21, 2017

According to a new study conducted by researchers from the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases and the University of Bonn currently published in the journal Nature, inflammatory mechanisms caused by the brain’s immune system accelerate the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. These discoveries, made by a series of extensive laboratory experiments, give a new perspective on pathogenetic mechanisms […]

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 […]
