Antibiotics Weaken Alzheimer's Disease Progression Through Changes in the Gut Microbiome

Long-term treatment with broad spectrum antibiotics decreased levels of amyloid plaques, a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease, and activated inflammatory microglial cells in the brains of mice in a new study by neuroscientists from the University of Chicago.

'Big Data' study discovers earliest sign of Alzheimer's development

Scientists at the Montreal Neurological Institute and Hospital have used a powerful tool to better understand the progression of late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD), identifying its first physiological signs. read more

'Big Data' study discovers earliest sign of Alzheimer's development

Scientists have used a powerful tool to better understand the progression of late-onset Alzheimer's disease (LOAD), identifying its first physiological signs. Rsearchers analyzed more than 7,700 brain images from 1,171 people in various...Show More Summary

Alzheimer's Detected Before Symptoms via New Eye Technology

Scientists may have overcome a major roadblock in the development of Alzheimer's therapies by creating a new technology to observe ? in the back of the eye ? progression of the disease before the onset of symptoms. Clinical trials are to start in July to test the technology in humans according to a paper recently published in Investigative Ophthalmology & Visual Science ( IOVS).

Three Bowlen children no longer working for Broncos

Three children of Broncos owner Pat Bowlen are no longer working for the team, the Denver Post reported Tuesday. Bowlen resigned control of the team in 2014 due to the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Team president Joe Ellis assumed control and added the CEO title, while John Elway retained control of football operations, as general…

The US death rate is rising — and here are the top five causes of death in each state

2 months agoNews : The Raw Story

Bucking a century of progress, the US death rate rose in 2015 for the first time in a decade—largely due to increasing rates of overdose as well as suicide and Alzheimer’s, The New York Times reports. This article was originally published by The Influence, a news site that covers the full...

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

2 months 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.

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

Alzheimer's Linked to Tau Protein in the Brain

This research indicates that Tau is a better marker of progression to Alzheimer’s disease than amyloid beta. A study using a new PET imaging agent shows that measures of tau protein in the brain more closely track cognitive decline due to Alzheimer's disease compared with long-studied measures of amyloid beta. Show More Summary

Researchers Examining Whether Comprehensive Lifestyle Changes Can Impact Progression of Alzheimer's Disease

Cedars-Sinai neuroscience researchers are studying whether extensive changes in lifestyle among patients with mild cognitive impairment can slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease. The research comes amid a sharp rise in the numbers of people affected by Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia. Show More Summary

PET scans reveal that tau predicts Alzheimer's disease progression

Thanks to positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of tau, which has only recently become available, researchers now report that tau tangles provide a good indication of cognitive decline in later stages of the disease. The study,Show More Summary

Brain Scans Further Link Alzheimer’s Disease to Tau Proteins

2 months agoNews : Newsweek: US

It’s well-established that the accumulation of two types of naturally occurring proteins in the brain—amyloid beta and tau—are central factors that contribute to the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. Up until this point, scientists have mainly focused their research on amyloid beta proteins, because there is no effective way to image tau. Show More Summary

Thermoregulation in Aging and Alzheimer's Disease

3 months agoHealth / 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.

LIVE at 2:30 pm EDT: Ending Alzheimer’s by 2025

Mayo Clinic's Dr. Ron Petersen is one of several experts testifying on Capitol Hill today at 2:30 pm EDT. The U.S. Senate Special Committee on Aging is holding a hearing on Alzheimer’s disease:“Finding a Cure: Assessing Progress Toward the Goal of Ending Alzheimer’s by 2025”. WATCH LIVE at 2:30 p.m. EDT. Chairman Collins, Ranking Member McCaskill will examine […]

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

4 months agoHealth / 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

4 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

Alzheimer's causes more diverse than previously thought

5 months agoTechnology / Gadgets : Gizmag

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.
