Researchers report Rolofylline could help alleviate learning and memory problems associated with aggregating Tau proteins.
Researchers discover Alzheimer's disease, and other neurodegenerative conditions could be linked to prion-like proteins.
Tau accumulations disrupt wake-promoting neurons. The findings help explain why day-time napping and sleep disruptions are often reported in Alzheimer's patients.
Self-propagating amyloid and tau act as prions in the pathology of Alzheimer's disease. Higher levels of the prions in human brain samples were strongly correlated with early onset of Alzheimer's and death at a younger age.
Researchers have identified four distinct subtypes of Alzheimer's disease. The findings could lead to more individualized treatments for those with the neurodegenerative disorder.
