Building on recent research finding associations between a breakdown in the blood-brain barrier and the onset of cognitive impairment, a new study has homed in on a specific blood-clotting protein that can trigger synaptic damage after leaking into the brain...

Pharmaceutical giant Roche has announced it is discontinuing two major human clinical trials into the anti-Alzheimer's drug crenezumab. The decision by Roche to pull the plug on the trials comes after many similar treatments have also recently failed in human trials adding to the growing doubt about how to best tackle Alzheimer's disease...

A new study from researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis has revealed further evidence of how sleep deprivation can drive the spread of toxic Alzheimer's-inducing proteins throughout the brain. The study bolsters the growing hypothesis suggesting sleep disruption plays a major role in the progression of neurodegenerative disease... Continue Reading More evidenc
Fascinating new research from a team at Yale has described a promising new Alzheimer's treatment, developed from a half-century old antibiotic. The research suggests a drinkable cocktail composed of newly discovered polymers may disrupt the early stages of the neurodegenerative disease...

A large team of researchers has developed a new way to classify patients with Alzheimer's disease suggesting we should think of the disease as six distinctly different conditions instead of one single disease...

Scientists at Scripps Research have discovered that a commonly-used antibiotic seems to help prevent the protein build-up associated with neurodegenerative diseases. In tests on roundworms, the researchers found that animals treated with the drug minocycline had less protein aggregation in their cells and subsequently lived longer...

Exciting research from a team at the Salk Institute is developing a new subclass of anti-aging compounds that are hoped to extend lifespan, reduce the molecular markers of aging, and slow the onset of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's. The work is on the cusp of commencing two human clinical trials investigating the efficacy of two compounds derived from natural sources... Con
A powerful new deep learning algorithm has been developed that can study PET scan images and effectively detect the onset of Alzheimer's disease up to six years earlier than current diagnostic methods. The research is part of a new wave of work using machine learning technology to identify subtle patterns in complex medical imaging data that human clinicians are unable to pick up... Contin
For years, scientists have suspected that drinking coffee helps lessen the chances of getting Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases. A new study indicates that this may indeed be the case, and that the darker the roast, the better it works...

One of the biggest challenges facing Alzheimer's and dementia researchers today is finding a way to clearly identify patients suffering from the very earliest stages of cognitive decline. New research is suggesting that artificial intelligence could be the key to accurately predicting those patients most at risk of developing Alzheimer's...
