Prions Prevent Alzheimers Disease
A role for prion proteins, the much debated agents of mad cow disease and vCJD, has been identified. It appears that the normal prions produced by the body help to prevent the plaques that build up in the brain to cause Alzheimers
The possible function for the mysterious proteins was...
New Conditions That Will Increase the Risk of Alzheimers Identified
People with normal cognitive functions may be vulnerable to Alzheimers
disease if they exhibit atrophy of their temporal lobe or damage to blood vessels in the brain, says a study of older adults.
The study, published in the Journal of Neuroimaging, also suggests that people exhibiting bo...
