New research may have finally homed in on the reason why some people are found to have build-ups of toxic Alzheimer's proteins in their brains without subsequent cognitive decline, and the results could lead to a whole new way to battle this devastating disease...

A new study has found an interesting correlation between several degenerative eye diseases and the onset of Alzheimer's disease. No mechanism explaining the connection has been proposed at this stage but it is thought these eye conditions may help physicians identify patients at risk of developing Alzheimer's at a stage before major symptoms appear...

Scientists have presented new research pointing to the liver as a potential culprit in the onset of Alzheimer's disease. Presented at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference the research suggests that a compound produced in the liver can confer neurocognitive protections and when the liver cannot effectively produce those compounds then cognitive deficits can result in the bra
Around two-thirds of people suffering from Alzheimer's disease are women but there has been a surprising lack of research into what could be causing such a stark sex-specific difference in the disease. Several new studies into reproductive history and dementia risk in women have now revealed contradictory results, suggesting pregnancy may have some kind of effect on dementia risk later in
Exciting new research from Yale University has revealed a new method that could potentially objectively diagnose if a person is suffering through the early stages of Alzheimer's disease using a non-invasive PET scan...

A new study from a team at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai has revealed an unexpected correlation between Alzheimer's disease and high levels of human herpes virus DNA. The controversial results have rekindled an old hypothesis suggesting viruses may play a part in the development of this devastating degenerative disease...

For decades, a single overriding hypothesis has guided the majority of research into Alzheimer's disease, but after a string of failed major clinical trials, a small group of scientists is starting to question this mainstream belief. A new study from a team of researchers at the University of Buffalo is suggesting a protein called presenilin could be a more effective target for potential t
Much is being discovered about the genetic origins of Alzheimer's disease, but it is still considered to be caused by a combination of genetic and environmental factors, and generally not a primarily heritable condition. A new study is suggesting the genetic impact of the disease could be more significant than previously thought, finding a strong link between the ages of parents and children
A new study has successfully reversed both the biological and behavioral hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease in mouse models. The research found that slowly depleting the presence of a certain enzyme can reverse the formation of amyloid plaques in the brain. Illustrating the tricky path current Alzheimer's research faces, the study was published literally hours after giant pharmaceutical company
