Alzheimer's clinical research lacks leadership


Can a childhood cancer doctor like me have insights about that other end of medicine — older adults with dementia? A baby acutely ill with leukemia seems like the polar opposite of a woman with Alzheimer's disease (AD), with her slow, insidious deterioration. Yet each can be progressive and fatal. I've cared for both, in different ways.

4 Signs Of Alzheimer’s Disease That Have Nothing To Do With Memory Loss

Once mom or dad reaches a certain age, it's easy to get swept away by worries about memory loss. Every time she wonders where she put her keys or he forgets his glasses are right there on his head, you probably think, "This is it, the beginning of the end."

We Know How To Curb Epidemics. Can Alzheimer’s Be Next?


I travel a lot, which means I spend much of my time in airports waiting to catch a flight. I use most of that time to work or catch up on email, but sometimes, when it’s really early in the morning or really late at night, I just sit at the gate and watch the people go by. And not too long ago I saw something that broke my heart.

This combo may trigger memory loss in Alzheimer’s

Biogen and Alzheimer’s: There’s a Fundamental Problem Here

Back in 2015, biotech juggernaut Biogen (NASDAQ: BIIB) made headlines on the news that its investigational Alzheimer's disease (AD) treatment aducanumab showed strong efficacy in an early-stage clinical trial. This devastating disease affects millions of Americans, and the scope of the issue has analysts estimating that a successful AD treatment could be worth as much as $20 billion by 2030. Unfortunately, however, the battleground of biotech is littered with the remains of previous "game-changing" therapies -- all of which ended in failure. Despite Biogen's best intentions, I, for one, believe aducanumab will be no exception.

Is Alzheimer’s linked to vitamin deficiency?

As research into Alzheimer’s disease and dementia continues to be stymied in its quest to find a cure, many researchers and health experts are turning to potential links between diet and brain health as possible determining factors in the onset and progression of dementia.

Dementia and Alzheimer’s disease: Seven ways to tell the conditions apart: VIDEO

Brain health: Alzheimer's and dementia are different

Alzheimer’s disease and dementia - both brain conditions - are often confused, but there are a number of differences between the two.

Dementia is the gradual decline of the brain and its abilities, including memory, thinking speed, mental agility, language, understanding and judgement.

Antibody helps detect protein implicated in Alzheimer's, other diseases

Tangles of the brain protein tau are associated with neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's. A new study shows that antibodies can capture tau in the blood, facilitating efforts to measure levels of the damaging protein and paving the way toward a noninvasive test for tau. Credit: Sara Moser

Damaging tangles of the protein tau dot the brains of people with Alzheimer's and many other neurodegenerative diseases, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy, which plagues professional boxers and football players. Such tau-based diseases can lead to memory loss, confusion and, in some, aggressive behavior. But there is no easy way to determine whether people's symptoms are linked to tau tangles in their brains.

‘Everybody knows somebody’: This state is a laboratory for the future of Alzheimer’s in America

Alan Ormiston stays close to wife, Jo, at the couple’s rural home near Nekoma, N.D., on Friday, April 7, 2017. The couple married in September 1959 and raised four children together. Alan has turned to the Alzheimer’s Association of Minnesota-North Dakota to help guide him in caring for Jo. Photo by Ann Arbor Miller/STAT

North Dakota’s sparse geography has long made it a natural frontier: Pioneers here pushed the boundaries of westward expansion, then agriculture, and recently domestic oil drilling. Now the state finds itself on the leading edge of a new boom that it never would have chosen: Alzheimer’s disease.

Alzheimer’s Red Flag or False Alarm?

Memory or language problems alone don't equal dementia. "It has to be a memory loss that also interferes with function," one expert says. (GETTY IMAGES)

Routine memory lapses are often benign, while dementia shows up in more subtle ways.

Difficulty distinguishing novel objects is associated with family history of Alzheimer's disease

Unique graphic characters called Greebles may prove to be valuable tools in detecting signs of Alzheimer's disease decades before symptoms become apparent.

Heart Risks in Midlife Tied to Brain Plaques of Alzheimer’s

Being obese, smoking or having high cholesterol, high blood pressure or diabetes in midlife is associated with an increased risk of dementia later in life. Now researchers have found these five risk factors correlate with the development, years later, of amyloid brain plaques, a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease.

Plotting the demise of Alzheimer's: New study is major test for power of early action

Credit: Harvard University

Catch it early. Those are watchwords in the battle against a host of illnesses, from heart disease to cancer to Type 2 diabetes. Early detection gives physicians a chance to minimize damage, to insert a stent and keep blood flowing to the heart, to remove a tumor before one becomes many, to urge crucial lifestyle changes: lose weight, eat better, exercise.
