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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Every 33 seconds. That’s how often a new Alzheimer’s patient will be diagnosed in the US by 2050, adding to millions of existing cases of a disease that as of yet has no cure. But we may have reached an important moment in the science of its treatment, according to Goldman Sachs Research’s Terence Flynn. […]
Dr. Laurie Ryan of the Division of Neuroscience at the National Institute on Aging/NIH describes how clinical trials are advancing Alzheimer’s research.
Pfizer, the world’s third-largest pharmaceutical company, recently announced that it is abandoning research for Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease treatments. The decision, which will lay off hundreds of research positions throughout the pharmaceutical titan, crushes the hopes of millions suffering from these neurological disorders, and now their dreams of finding a medication won’t likely come to […]
Alzheimer’s is a fatal neurodegenerative disease that results in the loss of a person’s cognitive function, ability to complete daily tasks and causes various degrees of physical and emotional stress. Here are 10 things you need to know about Alzheimer’s disease: The most common form of dementia is Alzheimer’s disease, which affects near 40 million […]
Reducing Stress Struggling with Alzheimer’s or dementia creates a tremendous amount of stress in your life. Too much stress can be overwhelming and adversely impact your health and functional capability. Utilizing the following tips to reduce stress may help increase your concentration, improve judgment, and overall quality of life. Symptoms of Stress Everyone tackles stress […]
“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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
Although symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease may vary from person to person, these 5 symptoms seem to be most common. The severity of symptoms can also vary, but a gradual increase in memory loss and the ability to learn new things seem to be telling signs of the onset of Alzheimer’s disease.
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 […]
Eating a Diet High in Sugar Can Increase the Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease. However, Many Brain-Healthy Strategies Can Aid in Slowing the Aging Process.
Being an Alzheimer’s caregiver requires education, hard work, social skills and patients if they want to get along and successfully work with the Alzheimer’s patient. It is not easy, here are some tips to assist your work as a caregiver: Don’t be in denial: It can be very hard to come to terms with a loved […]
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 […]
