Young People's Blood Could Help Treat Alzheimer's

AJ PHOTO—Getty Images/Science Photo Library RM

It sounds more like science fiction than real world science, but researchers at Stanford University announced the first results of a novel study in which they infused blood from young donors into a small number of people with mild to moderate forms of Alzheimer’s disease in the hopes of improving the disease’s symptoms.

Alzheimer's: Brain's protective mechanism revealed

The neurons' so-called dendritic spines may improve cognitive resilience against dementia, according to new research.

Buildups of "clumpy" proteins in the brain are well-known hallmarks of Alzheimer's, but not everyone who has them goes on to develop this neurodegenerative disease. Why is that? New research investigates.

Tangles of the protein tau and plaques of beta-amyloid are known to be precursors of Alzheimer's disease. That being said, between 30 and 50 percent of those who present these brain pathologies do not go on to develop Alzheimer's symptoms within their lifetime.

Alzheimer's: Word processing duration may predict onset

Seniors whose brains take longer to process written words may go on to develop Alzheimer's disease.

Recent research published in the journal NeuroImage Clinical suggests that the time it takes for someone to process written words may be a reliable predictor of their risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.

The new study focused on patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI), a condition in which seniors — typically over the age of 65 — develop minor but noticeable memory and cognitive problems.

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.

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.
