Diabetes drug ‘significantly reverses memory loss’ in mice with Alzheimer’s…

Summary:  A drug developed for diabetes could be used to treat Alzheimer’s after scientists found it ‘significantly reversed memory loss’ in mice through a triple method of action. This is the first time that a triple receptor drug has been used which acts in multiple ways to protect the brain from degeneration. It combines three […]

Humans still evolving, large-scale study of genetic data shows…

Summary:  In a study analyzing the genomes of 210,000 people in the United States and Britain, researchers have found that the genetic variants linked to Alzheimer’s disease and heavy smoking are less frequent in people with longer lifespans, suggesting that natural selection is weeding out these unfavorable variants in both populations… Read about it here […]

New non-invasive method can detect Alzheimer’s disease early…

“from Science Daily… A noninvasive MRI approach that can detect the Alzheimer’s disease in a living animal, well before typical Alzheimer’s symptoms appear, has been developed by researchers. The research team created an MRI probe that pairs a magnetic nanostructure with an antibody that seeks out the amyloid beta brain toxins responsible for onset of […]

Role of calcium in familial Alzheimers disease clarified, pointing to new therapeutics…

from ScienceDaily.com Mutations in two presenilin proteins associated with familial Alzheimer’s disease disrupt the flow of calcium ions within neurons. Researchers have found that suppressing the hyperactivity of the calcium channels alleviated FAD-like symptoms in mice models of the disease. These new observations suggest that approaches based on modulating calcium signaling could be explored for […]
