Researchers show that the consumption of extra-virgin olive oil protects memory and learning ability and reduces the formation of amyloid-beta plaques and tau tangles in the brain -- classic markers of Alzheimer's disease. The Mediterranean...Show More Summary
(Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center) In a recent feasibility study, BIDMC tested an anti-epileptic drug for its potential impact on the brain activity of patients with mild Alzheimer's disease. The team documented changes in patients' EEGs that suggest the drug could have a beneficial effect.

Going for a walk outside, reading, listening to music--these and other enjoyable activities can reduce blood pressure for elderly caregivers of spouses with Alzheimer's disease, suggests a study in Psychosomatic Medicine: Journal of Biobehavioral Medicine, the official journal of the American Psychosomatic Society. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer.
(American Geriatrics Society) Noting that the prescription of proton pump inhibitors is on the rise among middle-aged and older adults, a team of researchers designed a new study to examine PPIs and the risk of dementia, mild cognitive impairment, and Alzheimer's disease. They published their study in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society.
(IOS Press) People at risk for Alzheimer's disease who do more moderate-intensity physical activity, but not light-intensity physical activity, are more likely to have healthy patterns of glucose metabolism in their brain, according to a new UW-Madison study. Results of the research were published today online in Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.
Nature537, 50–56 (2016); doi:10.1038/nature19323Figure 1 of our original Article illustrated that treatment with aducanumab reduced human brain amyloid-? plaques in a dose-dependent fashion as measured by florbetapir positron emission tomography (PET) imaging. The figure gave the
Extra virgin olive oil is the key ingredient of the Mediterranean diet that protects the brain from Alzheimer’s disease and cognitive decline, scientists have discovered. The health benefits of the Mediterranean diet—rich in plant-based foods, olive… Read The post Extra Virgin Olive Oil Found to Protect Against Alzheimer’s Disease, Memory Decline appeared first on Towleroad.
(Institute for Systems Biology Moscow) InSysBio scientific group led by Tatiana Karelina developed a quantitative system pharmacology model of Alzheimer's disease. First part published in CPT Pharmacometrics & Systems Pharmacology shows how to design initial phases of clinical trials of new drugs and to interpret the data obtained.
The Mediterranean diet, rich in plant-based foods, is associated with a variety of health benefits, including a lower incidence of dementia.
A new study investigates the effect of extra-virgin olive oil on cognitive decline and brain inflammation in people with Alzheimer's disease.
Temple University research shows extra-virgin olive oil protects against memory loss, preserves the ability to learn and reduces conditions associated with Alzheimer's disease.
(University of Nottingham) A plant extract used for centuries in traditional medicine in Nigeria could form the basis of a new drug to treat Alzheimer's disease, researchers at The University of Nottingham have found.
(University of Eastern Finland) New research from the University of Eastern Finland shows that the APP gene variant protecting against Alzheimer's disease significantly decreases plasma beta-amyloid levels in a population cohort. This...Show More Summary
The discovery hints that microglia, rather than neurons, may control much of a person's genetic susceptibility to Alzheimer's disease.
Studies show that the more meat you eat, the greater your risk is of developing Alzheimer's disease. The post Bob Barker: Go Vegetarian to Prevent Alzheimer’s Disease appeared first on PETA.
By Professor Chris Exley Abstract: In this paper, I have summarized the experimental and largely clinical evidence that implicates aluminum as a primary etiological factor in Alzheimer’s disease. The unequivocal neurotoxicity of aluminum must mean that when brain burdens of...
A new study shows that people with a protective A? mutation have less of the peptide in their blood all through their lives, likely explaining why they do not get Alzheimer's. It suggests ways to prevent the disease in the vast majority of people who don't have the mutation.
(IOS Press) The patients who live alone do not receive the same extent of diagnostic investigations and anti-dementia treatment as those who are co-habiting. On the other hand, they were treated more frequently with antidepressants, antipsychotics and sedative drugs.
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive brain disease and the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S. While symptoms of AD such as memory loss and impaired judgement are widely recognized, we know less about what the disease does to the brain. Science still has a long way to go when it comes to...
