#ALT# Conformation-Specific Aβ Antibodies – Essential Tool for Future Alzheimer’s Research

Alzheimer’s disease is a complicated neurodegenerative condition showing symptoms that differ from patient to patient. The case for Aβ playing a vital role in disease pathology is compelling, yet its precise role remains unclear.

   Long-term antibiotic treatment slows growth of amyloid plaques in male mice but not in femalesLong-term antibiotic treatment slows growth of amyloid plaques in male mice but not in females
 
Researchers at The University of Chicago have demonstrated that the type of bacteria living in the gut can influence the development of Alzheimer's disease symptoms in mice.
 
 Light therapy may dramatically reduce neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s disease
 
Light therapy may dramatically reduce neurodegeneration in Alzheimer’s diseaseResearchers at MIT have found that light therapy can enhance synaptic function and protect against cell death in Alzheimer’s disease. The discovery follows previous research which showed that light therapy could significantly reduce amyloid plaques in mice.

Researchers map molecular structure and dynamics of one of Alzheimer's stickier culpritsIn a new study published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, researchers from the University of Colorado Denver and Binghamton University are the first to map the molecular structure and dynamics of an aggressive protein modification that spurs on Alzheimer's disease.
 
 
 Researchers explore link between aging fat cells and Alzheimer's
 
Researchers explore link between aging fat cells and Alzheimer'sScientists want to know whether our aging fat cells are important to the onset and progression of Alzheimer's. They have evidence that as we age, our fat becomes less efficient at producing a hormone that helps support the growth and survival of neurons and helps regulate their activity.
