Thermoregulation in Aging and Alzheimer's Disease

last weekHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

Researchers have provided initial and somewhat speculative data to suggest that the decrease in body temperature that occurs in old age may speed the progression of mechanisms implicated in Alzheimer's disease: "We know that the incidence of Alzheimer's is low before age 65, but doubles every 5 to 6 years afterward.

A Correlation Between Periodontitis and Cognitive Decline in Alzheimer's Disease

last monthHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

Periodontitis, an inflammatory condition of the gums, can spread the effects of chronic inflammation elsewhere in the body via the circulatory system. It is associated with the progression of a number of common age-related conditions that have an inflammatory component, such as cardiovascular disease. Show More Summary

Regrowth of Dendritic Spines Recovers Memories Lost to Alzheimer's Disease Pathology

2 months agoHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

This is an intriguing study in mice in which researchers explore exactly which structures must be regrown and recovered in the brain in order to restore access to memories lost to the progression of Alzheimer's disease - or, indeed, any other form of neurodegeneration. Show More Summary

Cheap, simple tests could improve Alzheimer's disease management at the bedside

Amsterdam, March 9, 2016 - A portable biosensor that could show how disease is progressing in patients with Alzheimer's could greatly improve people's quality of life in the future, according to a new review published in Biosensors and Bioelectronics. read more

Researchers have been discovering more and more about Alzheimer's disease, and some significant progress has been made in bettering our understanding of the degenerative condition. Now researchers from Lund University in Sweden haveShow More Summary

PET Scans Reveal Key Details of Alzheimer's Protein Growth in Aging Brains

New research led by scientists at UC Berkeley shows for the first time that PET scans can track the progressive stages of Alzheimer's disease in cognitively normal adults, a key advance in the early diagnosis and staging of the neurodegenerative disorder.

PET scans reveal key details of Alzheimer's protein growth in aging brains

Neuroscientists show for the first time that PET scans can track the progression of Alzheimer's disease. In doing so, they also shed light on tau and beta amyloid, two key proteins associated with the neurodegenerative disorder.

PET scans reveal key details of Alzheimer's protein growth in aging brains

Berkeley -- New research led by scientists at the University of California, Berkeley, shows for the first time that PET scans can track the progressive stages of Alzheimer's disease in cognitively normal adults, a key advance in theShow More Summary

Clearing Microglia Without Clearing Amyloid Produces Benefits in a Mouse Model of Alzheimer's Disease

2 months agoHealth / Aging : Fight Aging

Researchers have reduced inflammation and cell death in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease by reducing the numbers of microglia present in brain tissue, an approach that doesn't reduce amyloid-? levels associated with the progression of Alzheimer's disease even though it results in functional benefits.

Medical News Today: Mental activity may not stave off Alzheimer's progression

The benefits of mental and physical activity on the aging brain are now well documented. However, the progression of Alzheimer's disease appears to follow its own rules.

Lipid-based diets effectively combat Alzheimer's disease in mouse model

Researchers have devised several lipid-based diets aimed at slowing down progression and relieving symptoms of Alzheimer's disease (AD). It is generally accepted that lifestyle and particularly dietary habits influence mental health, and prevalence and progression of AD. Show More Summary

Alzheimer's insights in single cells

Study of plaque production holds promise of helping improve treatment for Alzheimer's, say investigators. Focusing on the form of the disease found in early onset Alzheimer's, in the 2 percent of patients who develop the progressiveShow More Summary

Can An Existing Blood Pressure Drug Atacand Help Treat Alzheimer's Disease

An FDA approved blood pressure medication Atacand (candesartan) was shown to reduce cell damage linked to the progression of Alzheimer's disease, according to a new study. "We hypothesize that candesartan, or other members of the ARB...Show More Summary

Can you die from Alzheimer's disease?

A person does not die directly from Alzheimer's disease. Over time, and as Alzheimer's progresses, the body's immune system weakens, increasing susceptibility to infection and other causes of death related to the elderly.Typical complications...Show More Summary

Beneficial effects of blocking brain inflammation in an experimental model of Alzheimer's

Blocking a receptor in the brain responsible for regulating immune cells could protect against the memory and behavior changes seen in the progression of Alzheimer's disease. It was originally thought that Alzheimer's disease disturbs...Show More Summary

Study shows beneficial effects of blocking brain inflammation in experimental model of Alzheimer's

A University of Southampton-led study has found that blocking a receptor in the brain responsible for regulating immune cells could protect against the memory and behaviour changes seen in the progression of Alzheimer's disease. The research, published today in the journal Brain, was jointly funded by the MRC (Medical Research Council) and Alzheimer's Research UK. read more

Uncovering the Secrets of Memory to Reverse Damage in Alzheimer’s Patients

Alzheimer’s is a progressive neurodegenerative disease, and seeing a loved one gradually lose control over his life and relationships, fail to recognize you, and become dependent on others just to carry out simple daily tasks is very painful. Alzheimer’s disease-associated dementia is so common that it has come to be viewed as a normal consequence […]
