Preventing obesity earlier in life may reduce Alzheimer's damage
Alzheimer’s disease is a common form of dementia. It is characterized by the degeneration of brain cells and cognitive decline that progress over time.
Early signs of Alzheimer's disease in people with Down's syndrome
Researchers at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden have studied the incidence and regional distribution of Alzheimer's disease biomarkers in the brains of people with Down's syndrome. The results can bring new possibilities for earlier diagnosis and preventive treatment of dementia. The study is published in Molecular Neurodegeneration.
Cause of Alzheimer's disease traced to mutation in common enzyme
Researchers from Tokyo Metropolitan University have discovered a new mechanism by which clumps of tau protein are created in the brain, killing brain cells and causing Alzheimer's disease.
Smog tied to raised risk for Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's
As the air people breathe gets dirtier, their odds for serious neurological disorders such as Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's and other dementias rises, new research shows.
Link between Alzheimer's disease and sleep apnea discovered in brain tissue
Decades before symptoms of Alzheimer's disease are detected, molecular changes are afoot in the brain. Clumps of amyloid-beta and tangles of another protein called tau start to accumulate in places, becoming stark hallmarks of a gradual decline in brain health.
Study reveals how renegade protein interrupts brain cell function in Alzheimer's disease
Dozens of molecules may tangle up with rogue bundles of tau, a protein that normally gives nerve fibers structure, to cause brain cell damage that contributes to neurodegenerative diseases, a new study showed.
Asthma drug could serve to treat Alzheimer's disease
A laboratory study has found that the asthma drug salbutamol prevents the formation of tangles of fibrous protein that are a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. The next step will be to test the drug in animal models of the disease.
Alzheimer’s: Copper transport in blood provides fresh clues
Faulty regulation of copper levels in tissues plays a major role in a wide range of illnesses, including Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and motor neuron disease. An investigation of molecules that carry copper in the bloodstream has provided new leads for diagnosis and treatment.
Living near major roads linked to risk  of dementia, Parkinson's, Alzheimer's and MS
Living near major roads or highways is linked to higher incidence of dementia, Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis (MS), suggests new research published this week in the journal Environmental Health.
Treatable disease often mistaken for Alzheimer's
When John Searle started to fall down and lose his memory, he thought it was the early signs of dementia. But it turns out he has a rare — and often undiagnosed — condition called normal pressure hydrocephalus. The good news is it's treatable.
Hypertension treatment may slow down Alzheimer's progression
Researchers found that nilvadipine, a drug that doctors regularly use to treat hypertension, may help people with Alzheimer's disease by increasing blood flow to the brain.
Blood test to spot Alzheimer's before symptoms occur
Researchers developed a new test that could help doctors detect Alzheimer's disease eight years before the first symptoms occur.
Study finds key details about ‘punch drunk syndrome’ and Alzheimer’s
The syndrome, also known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), is linked to repeated blows to the head and causes a type of dementia similar to Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer's screenings often left out of seniors' wellness exams in US
Primary care doctors in US are really good at checking seniors' cholesterol levels and blood pressure but often fail to use tests that could detect dementia.
