Critical protein shows promise for the treatment of Alzheimer's


The tidal wave approaches. In the coming decades, Alzheimer's disease is projected to exact a devastating economic and emotional toll on society, with patient numbers in the US alone expected to reach 13.5 million by mid-century at a projected cost of over a trillion dollars.

Exercise, Healthy Diet May Delay Onset of Alzheimer’s Disease, UCLA Study Finds

Regular physical activity, normal body mass index (BMI), and a healthy diet may prevent the onset of Alzheimer’s disease by reducing the incidence of protein aggregates in the brain, according to a study that will appear in the September issue of the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry.

Western diet increases Alzheimer's risk

Image Source: CAPITALOTC

Globally, about 42 million people now have dementia, with Alzheimer's disease as the most common type of dementia. Rates of Alzheimer's disease are rising worldwide. The most important risk factors seem to be linked to diet, especially the consumption of meat, sweets, and high-fat dairy products that characterize a Western Diet. For example, when Japan made the nutrition transition from the traditional Japanese diet to the Western diet, Alzheimer's disease rates rose from 1% in 1985 to 7% in 2008, with rates lagging the nutrition transition by 20-25 years. The evidence of these risk factors, which come from ecological and observational studies, also shows that fruits, vegetables, grains, low-fat dairy products, legumes, and fish are associated with reduced risk. "Using Multicountry Ecological and Observational Studies to Determine Dietary Risk Factors for Alzheimer's Disease," a review article from the Journal of the American College of Nutrition presents the data.

Alzheimer’s: There’s no cure, but is there hope: VIDEO

Clinical neuropsychologist Dr. David Loewenstein, here at his office in the Mental Health building, just wrapped up UHealth’s part in a recent national study on Alzheimer’s prevention through mind games. PEDRO PORTAL pportal@miamiherald.com

The battle against Alzheimer’s and dementia is a long way from over. The news sounds bleak: Progress of the disease can occasionally be slowed, but there is no cure. Drugs and treatments are limited. There are no new medical breakthroughs to offer hope to the more than five million Americans with the disease — or their families.

Why Eye Exams Are the Future of Alzheimer’s Screening

Getting screened for Alzheimer’s disease could soon mean taking a trip to the eye doctor. Decreased retinal thickness, the presence of abnormal proteins, and changes in how the retinal blood vessels respond to light all appear to be signs of neurodegenerative disease, according to researchers who spoke at the recent Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC 2016) in Toronto.

A tiny ball of gold could help fight Alzheimer’s

A new nanoparticle is so precise, it reduces side effects of a common drug

A tiny ball of gold carrying medicine could help doctors fight Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists have created a nanoparticle that is just the right size to target the overactive brain receptors that cause neurological disease, while leaving the rest of the receptors we need alone. This super-precise method could reduce the side effects of a common Alzheimer’s drug so doctors can prescribe it to help people during earlier stages of the condition.

Alzheimer's researchers see first promising therapies in decades

David Johnson during a round of golf at Cordova Golf Course July 21, 2016 in Rancho Cordova, Calif. Alzheimer's patient David Johnson is still golfing and driving four years after his debilitating diagnosis. The disease killed his father, uncles and a cousin but Johnson attributes his longevity to an experimental treatment by the Sutter Neuroscience Institute, which is involved in Alzheimer's research studies. (Randall Benton/Sacramento Bee/TNS)

For decades, Alzheimer's disease has been silently ravaging brains, stealing memories and shortening the lives of millions of Americans. Now researchers say they might be on the brink of tantalizing treatment breakthroughs that could for the first time at least slow the disease's deadly progression.

Our Short-Sighted Approach To Alzheimer’s Funding


The New York Times recently reported on the disappointing result of yet another Alzheimer’s drug trial. According to The Times, the drug, LMTX, “failed to slow the rate of decline in mental ability and daily functioning in its first large clinical trial ... The initial reaction to the outcome was disappointment, with perhaps a glimmer of hopefulness.”

How Alzheimer’s Begins And Why Some People Face Higher Risk: VIDEO

Gary Reiswig holds a portrait of his parents Fred and Della from 1934 at his apartment in New York July 13, 2011. Reisweig's family has a rare form of Alzheimer's disease that has stricken 10 of his 14 aunts and uncles, his father and his only brother and sister in the prime of their lives.

Researchers from Salk Institute for Biological Studies, California, have identified a link between a risk gene — that increases the likelihood of Alzheimer’s disease — and plaques formed when protein pieces called beta-amyloid and tau tangles bundle together in the brain. This, according to the researchers, provides possible explanation as to how the presence of that extra gene causes the chronic neurodegenerative disease.

Alzheimer's: Biochip blood test detects disease risk

Biochip blood testing for Alzheimer's disease risk provides a faster alternative to standard testing

Researchers have developed a faster, more affordable method of identifying patients more susceptible to Alzheimer's disease using a biochip-based blood test, with the same accuracy as a standard DNA test.

Standard molecular tests that analyze DNA can be both expensive and time-consuming. However, the biochip test, produced by Randox Laboratories, can conduct multiple tests on a single blood sample, which has both time- and cost-saving benefits, as well as a rapid diagnosis.
