Prescription for Medical Students: A Day at the Art Museum?

With the growing number of people with Alzheimer's disease, understanding their care is vital for doctors. Yet medical students often just learn the facts and may only see people with advanced disease who are at the hospital or nursing home. A study shows a new way to help medical students learn about the disease--at the art museum.

Naturally occurring protein fragment found in the brain inhibits key enzyme implicated in Alzheimer's disease

A natural protein fragment produced in the brain can act as an inhibitor of a key enzyme implicated in the onset of Alzheimer's disease, researchers have discovered for the first time. This is a finding that could lead to the development of new drugs to treat the disease, they say.

Identifying Biomarkers Key to Early Intervention in Alzheimer's Disease

At the University of Kentucky's Sanders-Brown Center on Aging, researchers are looking for biomarkers that might serve as an early warning system for AD. The process is not without complications, but these scientists possess a collective "Rosie the Riveter" spirit.

Brain disease scenarios revised by step-by-step imaging of toxic aggregation

Diseases like Alzheimer's are caused when proteins aggregate and clump together. In a world first, scientists have successfully distinguished between the disease-causing aggregation forms of proteins. The finding can help change pharmaceutical treatment of neurodegenerative diseases.
