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 […]

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 […]

What Does Alzheimer’s Do To The Brain?

alzheimershelp - November 7, 2017

It’s estimated that 50 million people worldwide are living with Alzheimer’s disease. This number is rising slowly with the fast aging populations in several countries. Alzheimer’s is a deadly neurodegenerative disease that causes a progressive loss of cognitive function, ability to complete daily tasks and various levels of physical and emotional stress. Cells begin to lose […]

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 […]

Noninvasive technique reduces beta amyloid plaques in mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease. Using LED lights flickering at a specific frequency, MIT researchers have shown that they can substantially reduce the beta amyloid plaques seen in Alzheimer’s disease, in the visual cortex of mice. This treatment appears to work by inducing brain waves known as gamma […]

New Research Reveals AI Doesn’t Struggle to Diagnose Alzheimer’s

alzheimershelp - October 31, 2017

Alzheimer’s disease is one of the most difficult diagnoses to make. In fact, the only way a doctor can 100% confirm a patient has the fatal neurodegenerative disease is to look at his or her brain during an autopsy. The cloud of uncertainty can be devastating to individuals who are beginning to exhibit memory loss, […]

A new study conducted by the Oxford University, published in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia, reveals that Dolphins are susceptible to Alzheimer’s disease. In humans, Alzheimer’s is typically indicated by clusters of proteins called tau and beta-amyloid plaques. Tau proteins are twisted proteins while amyloid plaques are sticky and folded. However, recently these pathologies were evident in the […]

In A Decade Alzheimer’s Disease May Be Preventable

alzheimershelp - October 26, 2017

Just about 5.5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s, a disease that damages the person’s  memories and eventually stops their body from performing necessary functions. There is no cure available, and there isn’t much a person can do to stop progression once diagnosed, but a neuroscientist by the name of Joseph Jebelli estimates there will be some […]

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 […]
