Researchers uncover biochemical pathway that may help identify drugs to treat Alzheimer’s

Related video Researchers have uncovered an enzyme and a biochemical pathway they believe may lead to the identification of drugs that could inhibit the production of beta-amyloid protein, the toxic initiator of Alzheimer’s disease. AD is characterized by the accumulation of beta-amyloid plaques, tau fibers and the loss of neurons in the brain. Currently, no […]

Study finds new cognitive decline mechanism in Alzheimer’s

Related video Researchers find cellular mechanism ‘A complete game-changer?’ People with Alzheimer’s disease experience poor blood flow to the brain, which affects cognitive function. A new study conducted in a mouse model has finally uncovered the reason behind this reduced blood flow. Reduced blood flow to the brain contributes to Alzheimer’s, but what mechanism leads […]
