Vaccines might be able to stop Alzheimer’s plaques from forming

The plaques linked to Alzheimer's disease seem to be made by the brain defending itself from attack. Dialling down this defence may stop the disease

Heme, a poisonous nutrient, tracked by 'Green Lantern' sensor

The toxin heme is essential to life, but cells must make use of it sparingly and carefully, as poor heme management can lead to Alzheimer's, heart disease and cancer. Researchers tailored ratiometric sensors to tracks heme's movements in yeast cells for the first known time.

Brain infections may spark Alzheimer’s, new study suggests

While still speculative, new hypothesis offers some sensible explanations to the disease.

Heme, a Poisonous Nutrient, Tracked by 'Green Lantern' Sensor

The toxin heme is essential to life, but cells must make use of it sparingly and carefully, as poor heme management can lead to Alzheimer's, heart disease and cancer. Researchers at the Georgia Tech have tailored ratiometric sensors to tracks heme's movements in yeast cells for the first known time.

New Research Uncovers A Possible Cause Of Alzheimer's Disease That Is Both Surprising And Promising

New research indicates that the brain's response to fighting off infections may play an important and previously unsuspected role in the development of Alzheimer's disease.

Scientists find link between brain infections and Alzheimer’s

A group of researchers at Harvard University may have unlocked the mystery behind what causes Alzheimer’s disease. The study, published this week, focused on the protein known as Amyloid Betas. A-Betas are the major component found in the Beta-Amyloid […]

Can Alzheimer's disease-associated peptide fight bacterial infection?

Amyloid-ß is a sticky peptide notorious for forming destructive plaques in the brains of Alzheimer's disease patients, but a new study suggests that it may also serve a protective function as an antimicrobial peptide. Researchers show...Show More Summary

Human amyloid-beta acts as natural antibiotic in the brains of animal models

A new study from Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators provides additional evidence that amyloid-beta protein - which is deposited in the form of beta-amyloid plaques in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease - is a normal part of the innate immune system, the body's first-line defense against infection.

Alzheimer’s Disease May Stem From Infections

A provocative new study suggests Alzheimer's disease may stem from the brain fighting off infections

The Possibility of Reducing Amyloid in the Brain by Reducing it Elsewhere

4 days agoHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

This paper explores the mechanisms by which the amyloid associated with the progression of Alzheimer's disease can be cleared naturally outside the brain. It raises the possibility that finding ways to reduce amyloid outside the brain will allow existing transport and clearance mechanisms to export and remove more of the amyloid from the brain.

Human amyloid-beta acts as natural antibiotic in the brain: Alzheimer's-associated amyloid plaques may trap microbes

A new study provides additional evidence that amyloid-beta protein -- which is deposited in the form of beta-amyloid plaques in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease -- is a normal part of the innate immune system, the body's first-line defense against infection.

Alzheimer’s may be caused by brain’s sticky defence against bugs

The amyloid plaques associated with Alzheimer’s disease may be the brain’s way of trapping invading microbes that have crossed the blood-brain barrier

Will heart medication help treat Alzheimer's disease?

Heart medication reduces the build-up of plaque in the brain’s blood vessels in mice, new research shows. The question is if this is true also in humans; if the answer is yes, it might bring scientists a step closer to developing a medicine against Alzheimer’s disease.

New study surveys genetic changes linked with Parkinson's disease

After Alzheimer's, Parkinson's disease (PD) is the leading neurodegenerative disorder, affecting close to a million Americans, with 50,000 new cases diagnosed every year. A progressive disorder of the nervous system affecting movement, PD typically strikes adults in mid-life. Show More Summary

Greater Risk of Alzheimer's in Men Linked to Loss of Y Chromosome in Blood Cells

Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. By Alzheimer's Reading Room Men showing loss of the Y chromosomes in blood samples developed Alzheimer's as often...Show More Summary

PET imaging with special tracer can detect, diagnose early Alzheimer's disease

Recognizing that the use of biomarkers has led to advances in the detection of Alzheimer's disease (AD), researchers reviewed a PET amyloid imaging agent, finding that imaging with PiB provides early detection of disease and allows clinicians to distinguish AD from other dementias. Show More Summary

Loss of Y chromosome in blood is associated with developing Alzheimer's disease

Men with blood cells that do not carry the Y chromosome are at greater risk of being diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease (AD), and this is in addition to an increased risk of death from other causes, including many cancers, the annual conference of the European Society of Human Genetics will hear today (Tuesday).

Sensor detects signs of cancer, Alzheimer's, and Parkinson's

6 days agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

Cancer and neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's are all able to be better treated if detected early. Unfortunately, this is not always the case as symptoms may not appear until these diseases are well established. Show More Summary
