Early Detection of Alzheimer’s through Retinal Scan






























The burden of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) goes far beyond the afflicted patient, affecting family, friends, and a significant portion of the healthcare system. Currently, there are more than 5 million individuals living with AD in the U.S., incurring $259 billion in healthcare costs. With costs estimated to rise to $1.1 trillion by 2050 as the number of AD cases could surpass 16 million, it is imperative that diagnostic tests be developed to detect early warning signs that signal the onset of the disease—at the very least to allow patients and their family time to prepare for various eventualities.

Scientists Aim For Better, Cheaper Tests For Alzheimer's




































Finding some change in the blood of an Alzheimer's patient that accurately reflects the damaging changes in the brain has been tough.

Efforts to develop a treatment that stalls the memory-robbing devastation of Alzheimer's disease have so far been unsuccessful, but scientists are making strides in another important area: the development of better tests to tell who has the condition.

Just One Night Of This May Elevate The Protein Responsible for Alzheimer's

This bad habit may be increasing the risk of Alzheimers (and it's not the amount of sleep you get)
  
The spectrum of our intellectual and emotional states, from curiosity, learning, exploration, and innovation to joy, happiness, love, and sadness all stem from that wonderful clump of neurons no larger than our two fists pressed together; intricate, tiny, fragile, and magnificent.

Senior TV show to shed light on caring for loved ones with Alzheimer’s






























Photo Jacqueline Ramseyer/Bay Area News Group/April 20, 2017 Val Jeffery, right, is producing her fourth and final program in a series on Alzheimer’s for The Better Part. With her is longtime friend Michael Sullivan, who was interviewed and talks about caring for his late wife Patricia, who passed from Alzheimer’s back in 2015.

Sullivan, who lives in Windsor, England, found assistance in his longtime friend Val Jeffery, who helps produce “The Better Part,” a public access television show run entirely by a volunteer group affiliated with Cupertino TV Productions, based out of the city’s senior center.

An Ancient Cure for Alzheimer’s?











































Eleanor Davis Credit Eleanor Davis

In 2011, Ben Trumble emerged from the Bolivian jungle with a backpack containing hundreds of vials of saliva. He had spent six weeks following indigenous men as they tramped through the wilderness, shooting arrows at wild pigs. The men belonged to the Tsimane people, who live as our ancestors did thousands of years ago — hunting, foraging and farming small plots of land. Dr. Trumble had asked the men to spit into vials a few times a day so that he could map their testosterone levels. In return, he carried their kills and helped them field-dress their meat — a sort of roadie to the hunters.

Missing link identified between immune cells and Alzheimer's



























Immune cells called perivascular macrophages (green) are observed in close contact with blood vessels in the brain (red). When activated by plaque deposits from the peptide amyloid-beta, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, perivascular macrophages produce damaging free radicals that paralyze blood vessels and deprive the brain of the needed supply of nutrients and oxygen. Credit: Cornell University

By studying the effects of immune cells that surround blood vessels in the brain, Weill Cornell Medicine researchers have discovered a new pathway involving these cells that may contribute to the cause of Alzheimer's disease.

Students Make Smart Companion Animals for Alzheimer’s Patients











































by KAITLIN MITCHELL

In an as-told-to essay for College Game Plan, Fiona Kalensky, co-founder of Therapalz, explains what she's learned navigating the business development process as a student.


My dorm room pitch

We build smart therapeutic companion animals for individuals with Alzheimer's and dementia. We began 2 1/2 years ago as a human-centered design group. We attended caregiver support sessions and spoke with nursing professionals and administrators.

Sleep, Alzheimer's link explained


























Research from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Radboud University Medical Centre in the Netherlands, and Stanford University shows that disrupting just one night of sleep in healthy, middle-aged adults causes an increase in a brain protein associated with Alzheimer's disease. Further, a week of poor sleep leads to an increase in another brain protein that has been linked to brain damage in Alzheimer's and other neurological diseases. Shown are brain waves during slow-wave sleep, measured as a study participant slept. Credit: Yo-El Ju

A good night's sleep refreshes body and mind, but a poor night's sleep can do just the opposite. A study from Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Radboud University Medical Centre in the Netherlands, and Stanford University has shown that disrupting just one night of sleep in healthy, middle-aged adults causes an increase in amyloid beta, a brain protein associated with Alzheimer's disease. And a week of tossing and turning leads to an increase in another brain protein, tau, which has been linked to brain damage in Alzheimer's and other neurological diseases.

Scientists Uncover the Chemical Structure of Key Protein Responsible For Alzheimer’s
























Knowing how scores of the protein bundle together will make it easier to disrupt their accumulation and stop their harmful effect from spreading uncontrollably.

By studying the brain tissue from a deceased 74-year-old woman with Alzheimer’s disease, researchers from the Medical Research Council’s Laboratory of Molecular Biology in Cambridge, UK were able to isolate tau proteins and explore their structure in unprecedented detail using Cryo-Electron Microscopy (cryo-EM) — a revolutionary imaging technique that studies samples at extremely low temperatures.
