Researchers may have made a breakthrough when it comes to understanding the onset of Alzheimer's disease. They've discovered a catalytic trigger when the fundamental structure of a protein molecule changes to cause a chain reaction that leads to the death of neurons in the brain.
A new study suggests that Vitamin-B could help prevent Alzheimer's disease by reducing the loss of grey matter in vulnerable regions of the brain.
Victims of skin cancer may be less likely to develop Alzheimer's disease, according to a study published in the journal Neurology. Those with skin cancer were 80 percent more likely to develop Alzheimer's disease than those who did not have any skin cancer.
A drug developed by scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies may be helpful reversing memory deficits and slowing Alzheimer's disease in aged mice following short-term treatment.
A drug that was used to slow Alzheimer's disease has failed to slow mental decline or preserve physical function.
A new potential benefit of a molecule in green tea was found by researchers at the University of Michigan: preventing the misfolding of specific proteins in the brain, leading to plaque, that are associated with Alzheimer's disease.
Scientists developed a drug against Alzheimer's that reduces the amount of the accompanying plaques in the brain by a third and more than doubles the number of new nerve cells in a particular region of the brain associated with memory. Professor David Allsop and Dr Mark Taylor at Lancaster Universit...
The number of people with Alzheimer's disease in the U.S. is expected to triple in the next 40 years.
A new way to zap Alzheimer's is incredible. Researchers from the University of Leeds, U.K., have found that the natural compounds present in red wine and green team reduce the progression of the disease.
A new treatment for Alzheimer’s is shocking—literally. The first U.S. experiments with “brain pacemakers” are now underway.
It is possible to convert stem cells into functional neurons by repressing a single protein, scientists in the U.S. and China found, which could allow for huge progress in the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases like Huntington's, Parkinson's and Alzheimer's.
New research in the FASEB Journal by NIH scientists suggests that a small molecule called TFP5 rescues plaques and tangles by blocking an overactive brain signal, thereby restoring memory in mice with Alzheimer's - without obvious toxic side effects.
