Two new Alzheimer’s genes discoveredAlzheimer’s Disease: Rethinking The Basics

Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the third largest cause of death and disability for older people globally, behind cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases and cancers. This whitepaper from Biophys Ltd discusses the current state of Alzheimer's research, emerging theories and potential therapeutics. They also discuss a novel hypothesis for Alzheimer's which offers exciting possibilities.

Older adults with more harmful than healthy bacteria in their gums are more likely to have evidence for amyloid beta--a key biomarker for Alzheimer's disease--in their cerebrospinal fluid (CSF), according to new research from NYU College of Dentistry and Weill Cornell Medicine.

Study shows how tau aggregates promote Alzheimer’s diseaseIf looked deep into the brain of a patient with Alzheimer’s disease or those suffering from the most types of dementia or the concussion-associated syndrome, called chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), there would be hairball-like tangles of a protein known as tau—a common suspected culprit.

Abnormal blood levels of proteins linked to dementia, Alzheimer's diseaseThe development of dementia, often from Alzheimer's disease, late in life is associated with abnormal blood levels of dozens of proteins up to five years earlier, according to a new study led by researchers at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
