Approved HIV drug could ward off Alzheimer’s disease

























Mouse studies have shown that small doses of an HIV drug boost the brain’s ability to clear cholesterol. Now, a Case Western Reserve University team has identified how the drug works, suggesting it could be effective in delaying or preventing Alzheimer’s disease in humans.

Research finds technique for early detection of Alzheimer's in animals


























University of Minnesota researchers have detected changes linked to early stages of Alzheimer’s disease, before brain function is impaired, in the retinas of live mice. The work paves the way for a human trial with the technology, which could lead to a noninvasive means of detecting the disease.

Understanding how chemical changes in the brain affect Alzheimer's disease





























Image Source: CAHO-HOSPITALS

A new study from Western University is helping to explain why the long-term use of common anticholinergic drugs used to treat conditions like allergies and overactive bladder lead to an increased risk of developing dementia later in life. The findings show that long-term suppression of the neurotransmitter acetylcholine -- a target for anticholinergic drugs -- results in dementia-like changes in the brain.

Can memory loss in Alzheimer's patients be reversed?





















A cure for Alzheimer's disease (AD), a condition marked by progressive, debilitating cognitive decline that affects more than million Americans, is the holy grail in disease research. One expert, Dr. Dale Bredesen, a professor at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and a professor at the Easton Laboratories for Neurodegenerative Disease Research at UCLA, thinks he might have found a way to reverse memory loss, a hallmark of the disease.

Alzheimer’s Medications

Most people know that Alzheimer’s disease (AD) leads to memory loss and cognitive decline. Most people, however, may not know that many people with AD also suffer with serious behavioral issues. According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), “Approximately 30% to 90% of patients with dementia suffer from behavioral disorders. They include symptoms such as depression, anxiety psychosis, agitation, aggression, disinhibition, and sleep disturbances.”

Could brain infection set the stage for Alzheimer’s?
























There is marked cortical atrophy in Alzheimer's disease, associated with loss of gyri and sulci in the temporal lobe and parietal lobe, and parts of the frontal cortex and cingulate gyrus. Credit: Doctor Jana/Creative Commons

One of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease is the buildup of the protein amyloid-beta in the brain. Several years ago neurobiologist Rob Moir began wondering about the function of amyloid-beta. Surely it couldn’t just be junk, gumming up the brain? His studies on this protein may be overturning some 30 years of assumptions about what causes Alzheimer’s.

Senate makes monumental commitment to care and support

























Image Source: BRECORDER

Today, the Alzheimer’s Association and its relentless advocates applaud the Senate Labor-HHS Appropriations Subcommittee for its commitment to the more than 5 million Americans living with Alzheimer’s disease and their more than 15 million caregivers. In a bipartisan effort, the committee included the Health Outcomes, Planning, and Education (HOPE) for Alzheimer’s Act (S. 857) in its funding bill. Since its inception, the Alzheimer’s Association has been intricately involved with its creation and strongly endorsed the HOPE for Alzheimer’s Act upon introduction by Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI). In the years since its initial introduction, the Alzheimer’s Association and its advocates have made securing bipartisan support for the legislation a key policy priority. As of today, the bipartisan bill has 55 cosponsors in the Senate and a companion bill in the House of Representatives (H.R. 1559), led by Congressman Chris Smith (R-NJ), has 284 cosponsors.

Obscure Disease May Offer Backdoor to New Treatments for Alzheimer's and Other Killers
































Research on Alzheimer’s has focused largely on another protein called amyloid beta, which clusters into “plaques” in the brain. But there is growing interest in tau’s role.  Credit: GerryShaw via Wikimedia Commons CC by 4.0

Progressive supranuclear palsy has become a test bed for therapies aimed at the tau protein thought to be behind many devastating neurodegenerative disorders


About 100 times rarer than Parkinson’s, and often mistaken for it, progressive supranuclear palsy afflicts fewer than 20,000 people in the U.S.—and two thirds do not even know they have it. Yet this little-known brain disorder that killed comic actor Dudley Moore in 2002 is quietly becoming a gateway for research that could lead to powerful therapies for a range of intractable neurodegenerative conditions including Alzheimer’s and chronic traumatic encephalopathy, a disorder linked to concussions and head trauma. All these diseases share a common feature: abnormal buildup of a protein called tau in the brains of patients.
