More Alzheimer’s Gene Links Found

TUESDAY, Aug. 14, 2018 — U.S. researchers say they’ve identified more genes that may be associated with Alzheimer’s disease. They studied nearly 6,000 people with Alzheimer’s and 5,000 people with healthy brains and pinpointed rare variations in genes that may play a role in the mind-degenerating disease. The newly identified genes suggest that an inflammatory […]

Eye Disease Link to Alzheimer’s Seen

SUNDAY, Aug. 12, 2018 — Researchers have discovered a link between three degenerative eye diseases and Alzheimer’s disease. They say their findings could lead to new ways to identify people at high risk for Alzheimer’s. “We don’t mean people with these eye conditions will get Alzheimer’s disease,” said lead researcher Cecilia Lee, an assistant professor […]

Ground-breaking discovery offers new hope for treatment of Alzheimer’s, other neurological diseases

There is new hope for the treatment of Alzheimer’s and other neurological diseases following a ground-breaking discovery made by an Australian-Chinese research collaboration. Researchers from the University of South Australia and the Third Military Medical University in China have discovered a signal pathway within cells, and also invented a potential drug that could stop degeneration […]

Eye conditions provide new lens screening for Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease is difficult to diagnose as well as treat, but researchers now have a promising new screening tool using the window to the brain: the eye. A study of 3,877 randomly selected patients found a significant link between three degenerative eye diseases — age-related macular degeneration, diabetic retinopathy and glaucoma — and Alzheimer’ disease.
