Know how obesity may cause early onset of Alzheimer's

The results showed that ageing, combined with a high fat and high sugar diet, results in increased inflammation and stress in the hippocampus -- responsible for long-term memory

Decoding dementia: It's not a demon (May 21-27 is Dementia Action [Awareness] Week)

Patients with Alzheimer's disease and dementia deserve our love and respect, but nothing can replace the full-time care and attention that a professional caregiver can provide. We should plan our care with care.


Infants showing early signs of Alzheimer's disease, air pollution triggering symptoms: Research

Exposure to fine-particulate-matter pollution and the thick sheet of smog, that is found in Mexico City and other parts of the world as well, contributed to triggering the symptoms. 

Sleep apnoea may increase alzheimer's risk in elderly

According to researchers, Alzheimer's disease is a "progressive neurodegenerative disorder" that destroys memory and other important mental functions and more sleep apnoeas further enhances its risk.

Alzheimer's disease can be kept at bay by nutrient drink

Scientists have developed a nutrient cocktail which may slow down cognitive impairment in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease.

New AI system can predict Alzheimer's 10 years in advance

Scientists have developed an artificial intelligence system that can accurately identify signs of Alzheimer's disease almost 10 years before clinical symptoms appear.


Poor sleep may point to onset of Alzheimer's disease: study

While some of these relationships were strong when looking at everyone as a group, not everyone with sleep problems has abnormalities in their spinal fluid. There was no link between biological markers in spinal fluid and obstructive sleep apnea.

There's hope: Blood test that detects early Alzheimer's disease developed

This is the first blood test using auto-antibody bio-markers that can accurately detect Alzheimer's at an early point.

Detecting Alzheimer's through routine blood test: A possibility in the future

A protein has been found which can be used as a biomarker in routine, non-invasive blood tests for detecting Alzheimer's disease.

Latest research on fighting alzheimer’s disease: More Trials And Some Error

Data from continued drug trials by Eli Lilly released this week show it might be possible, if the drug is taken early, to slow Alzheimer’s in patients with a mild form of the disease. However, a different set of data, presented by Biogen, failed to show statistically significant benefits for patients on a closely regulated dose. The bottom line: A final assessment will take more time and tests, even though scientists think their line of attack on the disease is the correct one
