Vascular risk factors appear to have a negative synergistic effect with amyloid beta levels in the brain, researchers report. The study suggests a combination of increased vascular risk and higher amyloid levels in the brain can predict more rapid cognitive decline during aging.
A new study reveals a link between chronic sciatica and inflammation in key areas of the nervous system. Researchers say the location of the inflammation could help to determine which patients will feel relief from steroid injections to curb the pain.
Researchers report the addition of an FDA approved chemotherapy drug called hydroxyyurea to temozolomide helps to increase survival rates in animal models of glioblastoma.
