Researchers have uncovered a unique connection between diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease, providing further evidence that a disease that robs people of their memories may be affected by elevated blood sugar, … Continue Reading Scientists find new link between diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease.
A research team showed that a nanotherapeutic medicine can halt the growth of artery plaque cells resulting in the fast reduction of the inflammation that may cause a heart attack, … Continue Reading Nanotechnology successfully used to halt atherosclerotic plaque growth in animal model.
After six years of painstaking research, a UCLA-led team has validated the first standardized protocol for measuring one of the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s disease, the atrophy of the part … Continue Reading Harmonized neuroimaging protocol for measuring early sign of Alzheimer’s has been developed.
Brain levels of the lipid ceramide are high in Alzheimer’s disease, and now scientists have found increased levels of an antibody to the lipid in their disease model. While some … Continue Reading New study provides more proof that Alzheimer’s is an autoimmune disease.
A study from researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) reveals for the first time exactly how mutations associated with the most common form of … Continue Reading Study identifies the epigenetic pathway of familial Alzheimer’s disease.
Amyloid, an abnormal protein whose accumulation in the brain is a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease, starts accumulating inside neurons of people as young as 20, a much younger age than … Continue Reading Alzheimer amyloid accumulation found in young adult brains for the first time.
New imaging technique successfully detects Peripheral Arterial Disease in diabetic patients in study.
Approximately 8 to 12 million people in the United States alone are suffering from peripheral arterial disease (PAD), a common vascular problem that is caused by narrowing of the arteries … Continue Reading New imaging technique successfully detects Peripheral Arterial Disease in diabetic patients in study.
Nanometer-sized drones that deliver a special type of healing molecule to fat deposits in arteries could become a new way to prevent heart attacks caused by atherosclerosis, if an animal … Continue Reading Nanobot ‘drones’ successfully target atherosclerosis in animal model.
The pathological process amyloidosis, in which misfolded proteins, amyloids, form insoluble fibril deposits, occurs in many diseases, including Alzheimer’s disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, little is known about … Continue Reading Researchers identify amyloid formation link between Alzheimer’s disease and T2 diabetes.
Scientists at Rigshopitalet, Herlev Hospital and the University of Copenhagen identify a new biomarker that can predict the risk of developing dementia by way of a simple blood test. In … Continue Reading Large-scale study validates simple blood test for dementia.
Research suggests anti-inflammatory protein, interleukin 10, may trigger plaque in Alzheimer’s disease.
Inflammation has long been studied in Alzheimer’s, but in a counterintuitive finding, University of Florida researchers have uncovered the mechanism by which anti-inflammatory processes may trigger the disease. This anti-inflammatory … Continue Reading Research suggests anti-inflammatory protein, interleukin 10, may trigger plaque in Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers at the RIKEN-Max Planck Joint Research Center have demonstrated that hallmark symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease can be reduced when sugars are prevented from binding to one of the key … Continue Reading Researchers reduce Alzheimer’s plaques by targeting glycosylation.
Changes in brain connections visible on MRI could represent an imaging biomarker of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a new study presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of … Continue Reading Neuroimaging shows brain connection breakdown in early Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers from Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School have found a close association between high-risk coronary artery plaque and a common liver disease using coronary computed tomography angiography (CCTA). … Continue Reading Study finds link between coronary artery plaque and liver disease.
