According to researchers, as we age, it takes a lot longer to clear amyloid beta from the brain, thus leading to a build up of the toxic protein implicated in Alzheimer's disease.
According to a new study, omega 3 polyunsaturates fatty acids can improve the function of the glymphatic system.
Two new studies shed light on the most toxic forms of amyloid beta and suggest how researchers can find new antibodies to help target these structures in Alzheimer's disease.
Combining a tetanus vaccine with a virus particle may prove effective as a protection against Alzheimer's. The vaccine could also be used to treat allergies and psoriasis, researchers report.
Researchers have discovered Alzheimer-type pathology in the brains of some dura mater transplant recipients who later died of CJD.
A new study provides a description of metals in the brain that may drive the progression of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers from WUSTL have identified a compound that targets APOE in mouse brains and which protects against Alzheimer's disease. The APOE4 genetic variant increases the risk of people developing Alzheimer's disease. The findings offer new possible avenues of treating the disease in humans.
