Latest Early-onset Alzheimer's disease Stories
New research has identified the memory and brain scan tests that appear to predict best whether a person with cognitive problems might develop Alzheimer's disease.
By investigating the association between genetic loci related to Alzheimer's disease and neuroimaging measures related to disease risk, researchers may have uncovered additional evidence that several previously studied genetic variants are associated with the development and progression of Alzheimer's disease and also may have identified new genetic risk factors for further study.
Researchers have discovered how mutations in the presenilin 1 gene cause early-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD).
Research reveals that a new molecular imaging agent may provide early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease.
APOEe-4 gene carriers with Alzheimer's disease have more memory problems; non-carriers troubled with attention, language and executive function.
NEW YORK, May 6 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF) announced today that it has awarded a grant of $210,300 to Amicus Therapeutics (Nasdaq: FOLD; Cranbury, NJ) to evaluate small-molecule, orally delivered pharmacological chaperone compounds as a novel approach for treating Alzheimer's disease.
Using sophisticated techniques that scan the genomes of patients, researchers at the Mayo Clinic campus in Florida have found that a gene appears to either help protect against development of Alzheimer's disease, or promote the disorder depending on the level of gene in the brain.
New imaging tool could eventually lead to earlier detection among pre-symptomatic individuals.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Complementary approaches to Alzheimer's research were recognized as four scientists received the prestigious MetLife Foundation Awards for Medical Research in Alzheimer's Disease in Washington, D.C. during a scientific briefing and luncheon. Todd E.
Working with worms may not be your average personâ€™s idea of a good time, but for University of Toronto researcher Dr. Andrew Fraser, they are fascinating.
