Protein in the brain could be a key target in controlling Alzheimer’s

A protein recently discovered in the brain could play a key role in regulating the creation of amyloid beta, the major component of plaques implicated in the development of Alzheimer’s disease, according to researchers at Temple University’s School of Medicine.

A group led by Domenico Pratico, professor of pharmacology and microbiology and immunology at… Protein in the brain could be a key target in controlling Alzheimer’s   



Path Is Found for the Spread of Alzheimer’s

Alzheimer’s disease seems to spread like an infection from brain cell to brain cell, two new studies in mice have found. But instead of viruses or bacteria, what is being spread is a distorted protein known as tau.

The surprising finding answers a longstanding question and has immediate implications for developing treatments, researchers… Path Is Found for the Spread of Alzheimer’s   



Laboratory Research Shows Promising Approach to Preventing Alzheimer’s

As scientists struggle to find an effective way to prevent Alzheimer’s disease, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison may have found a new approach to interrupting the process that leads to the devastating disease.

Building on their knowledge of two enzymes that control an “uber” enzyme critical to the development of the disease, the… Laboratory Research Shows Promising Approach to Preventing Alzheimer’s
