Imaging study links key genetic risk for Alzheimer's disease to myelin breakdown

... can lead to the brain/mind-destroying plaques and tangles visible years later in the cortex of Alzheimer patients. The Apolipoprotein E (ApoE) genotype is the second most influential Alzheimer risk factor, after only advanced age. The study used MRI to assess myelin breakdown in 104 healthy individuals be...

New compound stops brain cell degeneration in Alzheimer's disease

...her investigators in the field has linked plaques, tangles and neuronal injury to synaptic dysfunction and cognitive decline, the direct linkage of glia to these processes and their potential as a selective target for new therapies has not previously been implicated so directly. There are three key aspects ...

U of MN researchers reverse memory loss in mice

...fter the memory loss was regained in the mice, the tangles remained, and even increased in number. This suggests that the tangles are not a cause of dementia as previously thought. The mice serve as a model that shows how the dis...

Scientists at Galileo Pharmaceuticals confirm inflammatory response linked to glucose levels

...and his team chose to focus on the neurofibrillary tangles of neurons in the brain that, along with senile plaques, characterize Alzheimer's disease. The tangles are made of "tau," a protein that is also present normally in the brain. "Tau goes wrong and become...

Scientists discover that three molecules may be developed into new Alzheimer's drugs

Fibril Shape Is The Basis Of Prion Strains And Cross-species Prion Infection

...normal prion protein, which aggregate into fibrous tangles called amyloid fibrils and cause fatal wasting of brain tissue. The abnormally folded protein itself appears to act as an infectious agent, transmitting disease without a DNA or RNA genome such as in a virus. Although disease prions seem to infect no...
