A new paper explores different findings about the development of Alzheimer's and considers how personalized treatments may help combat this complex disease.
A molecular process caused by the TREM2 gene mutation in the brain's microglia increases the risk of Alzheimer's disease, a new study reports.
A two-week course of CBD helps normalize and restore the function of two proteins associated with reducing amyloid-beta accumulation in mouse models of familial Alzheimer's disease. CBD also reduces levels of IL-6, an immune protein associated with inflammation in Alzheimer's patients.
Rapamycin, a drug approved for the treatment of cancer and transplant patients increases amyloid-beta protein plaques in the brains of mice.
Researchers report activating microglia may help reduce the imbalance between neuroprotection and neurotoxicity for neurodegenerative diseases.
