Single tau molecule holds clues to help diagnose neurodegeneration in its earliest stages

Related video Scientists who recently identified the molecular start of Alzheimer’s disease have used that finding to determine that it should be possible to forecast which type of dementia will develop over time – a form of personalized medicine for neurodegenerative diseases. A new study from UT Southwestern shows that single toxic tau proteins that […]

Study finds 117% increase in number of dementia sufferers in 26 years

Related video An international group of collaborating scientists that includes HSE Professor Vasily Vlasov has analyzed data from 195 countries on the spread of Alzheimer’s disease and other dementia between 1990 and 2016. The results have been published in the journal The Lancet Neurology: https://doi.org/10.1016/S1474-4422(18)30403-4. The study drew on official data on morbidity and mortality, […]
