Neurodegeneration

Scientists identify molecular system that could help develop treatments for Alzheimer’s disease

Scientists from the University of Southampton have identified the molecular system that contributes to the harmful inflammatory reaction in the brain during neurodegenerative diseases.

An important aspect of chronic neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Huntington’s or prion disease, is the generation of an innate inflammatory reaction within the brain.

Results from the study… Scientists identify molecular system that could help develop treatments for Alzheimer’s disease   



Alzheimer’s Gene Effects Show Up in Infancy

Infants and toddlers with the Alzheimer’s disease-associated APOE4 genotype already showed distinctive patterns of brain structure relative to other young children, researchers said.

MRI scans carried out in 60 normally developing children, age 2 to 25 months, who carried the APOE epsilon-4 allele, showed smaller volumes of gray matter and and lower white matter… Alzheimer’s Gene Effects Show Up in Infancy
