Never before seen images of early stage Alzheimer’s disease

Images that predate the formation of toxic clumps of beta-amyloid, the protein believed to be at the root of Alzheimer’s disease, have now been...

Boosting a cell-protecting protein may help slow Alzheimer’s disease progression

The study provides the first evidence that boosting Nrf2 by blocking its inhibitor, Keap1, can protect neurons from mice from the effects of the...

Link found between concussions, Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers found that having a concussion was associated with lower cortical thickness in brain regions that are the first to be affected in...

Picture of nerve cells dying in the brain of prion-diseased mice. The nerves are stained pink and can be seen dying in the CA1...

New research offers ‘critical insights’ for treating, preventing Alzheimer’s disease

New research led by North­eastern Uni­ver­sity sug­gests that Alzheimer’s dis­ease may not progress like falling domi­noes, as con­ven­tional wisdom holds, with one mol­e­c­ular event...

New mechanism discovered for Alzheimer’s risk gene

Salk scientists identify that the enzyme HtrA1 (pictured) degrades ApoE4, the strongest genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease, providing new information that might eventually...

Treatment option for Alzheimer’s disease possible

A research project has shown that an experimental model of Alzheimer’s disease can be successfully treated with a commonly used anti-inflammatory drug.A team led...

Gene signature in healthy brains pinpoints the origins of Alzheimer’s disease

In healthy tissues, a gene expression signature associated with amyloid-beta and tau aggregation echoes the progression of AD well before the onset of the...

Alzheimer’s Disease: Complex Work Involving Others May Build Resistance to Brain...

A stimulating job that involves complex thinking and interaction with other people seems to help protect against the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease, according to...

Promising new methods for early detection of Alzheimer’s disease
