As the population ages, so too will the incidence of disease in people over the age of 65. Research into effective treatments for the management or prevention of such diseases are therefore urgently needed.
 
 Blood-clotting factor may cause Alzheimer's disease
 
Blood-clotting factor may cause Alzheimer's diseaseA protein known for its role in forming blood clots has been found to cause the characteristic cognitive decline of Alzheimer's disease. The discovery provides a new target for drug developers trying to find a cure for this devastating condition.

Study explains why women are more prone to Alzheimer’s diseaseA study of 300 elderly individuals who underwent PET (positron emission tomography) scans showed that women are more likely to develop the toxic proteins known to trigger the disease.
 
 
 The cytoskeleton of neurons found to play role in Alzheimer's disease
 
The cytoskeleton of neurons found to play role in Alzheimer's diseaseA researcher at the UPV/EHU has participated in a study describing what it is during the early stages of Alzheimer's that triggers the loss of dynamics and subsequent impairment of the dendritic spines, the compartments of the neurons responsible for receiving nerve impulses from other neurons.
 
 
 USC researchers use AI to identify blood-based markers of Alzheimer's disease
 
USC researchers use AI to identify blood-based markers of Alzheimer's diseaseNearly 50 million people worldwide have Alzheimer's disease or another form of dementia. While age is the greatest risk factor for developing the disease, researchers believe most Alzheimer's cases occur as a result of complex interactions among genes and other factors. But those factors and the role they play are not known--yet.

Exercise hormone can prevent Alzheimer's finds studyAccording to a large worldwide study, the hormone that is produced in the body during exercise called irisin, can prevent and delay the onset of mental faculty decline and Alzheimer’s disease. The results of the study were published in the latest issue of the journal Nature Medicine.
