Alzheimer’s disease greater in females, researchers speculateThis week, at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference in Chicago, a group of researchers presented reserch findings on the gender differences in Alzheimer’s causation. They speculated that women might be getting Alzheimer’s and dementia more commonly than men and the reason behind this has not been clearly understood. Estrogen or the female hormone could be the key, the researchers state.
 
 
 New proteomics studies help gain more insights into Alzheimer's, cancer and listeriosis
 
New proteomics studies help gain more insights into Alzheimer's, cancer and listeriosisThe brains of people with Alzheimer's disease contain many protein aggregates outside of cells, known as plaques. These are mainly made of the peptide amyloid-beta, which is released from the plasma membrane when the protease BACE1 cleaves its membrane-anchored precursor protein.
