Short-term exposure to air pollution, even lower level pollution from charcoal grills or gridlock traffic, can have a negative impact on cognition. However, taking an NSAID medication, such as aspirin, can help minimize the impact.
Researchers found no evidence NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen, may result in worse outcomes for some COVID-19 patients or help control the virus. TNF blockers and JAK inhibitors, used to treat inflammation and arthritis, were also found to be safe to use. However, low amounts of prednisolone or tacrolimus therapy may be useful in treating coronavirus infection.
The use of naproxen, an NSAID anti-inflammatory, increases the frequency of adverse health effects and does not reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.
A new study reports a commonly used NSAID anti-inflammatory drug was able to reverse memory loss in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease.
Researchers have discovered a potential drug which can force BACE into different parts of a cell, reducing its ability to produce amyloid beta.
Researchers transform iPSCs into neurons to test the efficacy of drugs to treat Alzheimer's disease.
