Blocking the breakdown of a specific fat molecule in the the brains of mice lead to reduced learning ability and memory retention. Additionally, researchers noted an increase of Alzheimer's related proteins. Findings may help explain how dementia may develop in humans, researchers say.
New technology allows researchers to produce images that predate the formation of amyloid beta in the brain. The findings have prompted researchers to suggest stabilizing the protein, rather than attempting to limit it, in order to reduce Alzheimer's symptoms.
Researchers discovered some protease inhibitors used to treat HIV can lead to the production of the peptide amyloid beta.
A new study confirms a mutation caused dysfunction associated with Alzheimer's and proposes a new therapeutic target.
Researchers believe their new findings may supersede the amyloid hypothesis of Alzheimer's disease.
Abnormalities are linked to axonal dysfunctions and neurodegeneration in Alzheimer's disease and Down syndrome, a new study reports.
Amyloid beta pathology may be more versatile than previously thought, a new study reports.
Researchers present a new therapeutic strategy that could help patients with Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have identified a uniquely identifiable odor signature in urine that appears prior to the development of Alzheimer's related brain pathologies.
Math models usually applied to physics studies are proving useful in studying the spatial distribution of astocytes in the brain, and are helping to develop new strategies for tackling Alzheimer's disease.
The chemical EPPS appears to effectively restore memory and remove the build up of amyloid in the brains of mice genetically altered to have features of Alzheimer's disease.
