Harnessing immune cells in the brain to ward off Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases – Neuroscience News

Summary: Researchers have identified a protein that could be harnessed to help microglia in the brain ward off Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases. Source: The conversation Many neurodegenerative diseases, or conditions resulting from the loss of function or death of brain cells, remain largely incurable. Most available treatments target only one of the multiple …

New blood test can detect ‘toxic’ proteins years before Alzheimer’s symptoms appear – Neuroscience News

Summary: A new blood test can detect the toxic beta-amyloid oligomers associated with Alzheimer’s disease years before symptoms appear. Source: University of Washington Today, by and large, patients are only diagnosed with Alzheimer’s after showing well-known signs of the disease, such as memory loss. At this point, the best treatment options simply slow the progression …

Machine Learning Identifies Most Accurate Time Frames to Predict Alzheimer’s Disease Progression

A Cornell-led collaboration used machine learning to identify the most accurate ways and timeframes to predict the course of Alzheimer’s disease in cognitively normal or mildly cognitively impaired people. Modeling has shown that it is easier and more accurate to predict future dementia decline in people with mild cognitive impairment than in cognitively normal or …
