Progression Of Biomarkers For Alzheimer's Disease - 5th & 6th November London

The central nervous system is a fundamental part of the human body's response system, creating a massive range of reactions, targets, and in turn, diseases. With increasing average life expectancy, this wide range of disorders (fromShow More Summary

Breakthrough In Understanding Alzheimer's Disease And Its Progress

The inexorable spread of Alzheimer's disease through the brain leaves dead neurons and forgotten thoughts in its wake. Researchers at Linkoping University in Sweden are the first to show how toxic proteins are transferred from neuron to neuron. Show More Summary

FASTER, PLEASE: Trial of Alzheimer’s Vaccine is Successful. “Swedish researchers report the successful trial of a vaccine that helps individuals develop protective antibodies that can prevent progression of Alzheimer’s disease.... The new treatment, which is presented in Lancet Neurology, involves active immunization, using a type of vaccine designed to trigger the body’s [...]

U.S. to escalate war on Alzheimer's

2 years agoHealth : The Chart

The U.S. government is stepping up efforts to combat Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia, affecting more than 5 million Americans and whose progression has been resistant to treatments. U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius detailed the plan Tuesday at the Alzheimer’s Disease Research Summit 2012: Path to Treatment and [...]

Marie Marley: When Alzheimer's Patients Make Perfect Sense: Those Stunning Moments of Total Lucidity

2 years agoNews : Huffington Post

As a person's illness progresses, these episodes tend to occur less often, and so when they do occur, it's all the more striking and precious.

Reducing Brain Activity Improves Memory After Cognitive Decline

Research suggests a new approach to improving memory and interrupting disease progression in patients with a form of cognitive impairment that often leads to full-blown Alzheimer's disease.

Biosynthetic Grape Derived Compound Prevents Progression of Alzheimer's

This group of researchers found that certain grape seeds extracts, comprised of a complex mixture of naturally occurring polyphenols, were capable of lessening cognitive deterioration and reducing brain neuropathology. Alzheimer's Reading...Show More Summary

Progression Of Alzheimer's Disease In Mice Prevented By Biosynthetic Grape-Derived Compound

Mount Sinai School of Medicine researchers have succeeded in developing a biosynthetic polyphenol that improves cognitive function in mice with Alzheimer's disease (AD). The findings, published in a recent issue of the Journal of Neuroscience,...Show More Summary

Understanding of the Tau Mechanism in Alzheimer's Disease Progression

Mount Sinai scientists have determined how a pathological brain protein called tau contributes to the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Alzheimer's Reading Room Researchers at Mount Sinai School of Medicine have gained insight into...Show More Summary

Biosynthetic grape-derived compound prevents progression of Alzheimer’s disease in animal model

Researchers have succeeded in developing a biosynthetic polyphenol that improves cognitive function in mice with Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The findings provide insight in determining the feasibility of biosynthetic polyphenols as a possible therapy for AD in humans, a progressive neurodegenerative disease for which there is currently no cure.

Too Early To Promote Smell Test For Alzheimer's

A study published online in The Laryngoscope reveals that current studies do not support the use of olfactory identification tests (smell tests) for predicting Alzheimer's dementia. Alzheimer's is a progressive disease that causes loss of brain function and is the most common cause of dementia. The disease is expected to double every 20 years through the year 2040...

Brain Plasticity Promoted And Memory Loss Prevented In Alzheimer's Disease By Intravenous Vaccination

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is an incurable, progressive neurodegenerative disease affecting over five million people worldwide, and is the leading cause of dementia in the elderly. Currently, intravenous human immunoglobulin (IVIG) treatment is being explored in multiple off-label uses other than immunotherapy, including AD. Show More Summary

Intravenous vaccination promotes brain plasticity and prevents memory loss in Alzheimer's disease

BU Researchers Identify Genes that Influence Hippocampal Volume

The hippocampus shrinks before and during the progression of Alzheimer's disease, but other factors, such as vascular risk factors and normal aging, also lead to the decrease in size. Alzheimer's Reading Room Sudha Seshadri An international...Show More Summary

Conversations as a Means to Delay the Onset of Alzheimer's Disease

Everyone needs conversation and social engagement. This includes persons who are deeply forgetful. By Bob DeMarco Alzheimer's Reading Room Can conversation, social interaction, and using the brain slow the progression of Alzheimer's? I...Show More Summary

Role of amyloid beta as sensors and protectors in Alzheimer's and other diseases explored

Amsterdam, NL -- Alzheimer's disease is the sixth leading cause of death in the United States and the only cause of death among the top 10 in America without a way to prevent, cure or even slow its progression, according to the Alzheimer's Association. Show More Summary

Alzheimer's Improvements Seen In Mice Infected With Toxoplasma gondii Parasite

The parasite Toxoplasma gondii has some favorable effects on the pathogenesis and progression of a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease, reports a study in the open access journal PLoS ONE. Toxoplasma gondii, a parasite commonly hosted in cats and generally known for the potential complications it can cause for human pregnancies, suppressed the immune system...
