5.4 million Americans suffer from Alzheimers and 3 million from Parkinson's disease. Doctors who treat patients with these among other neurodegenerative conditions believe that the diseases are spreading though their patients' brains. The stages of both Alzheimers and Parkinson's disease show these pathological effects.

According to a new study, the neuron-killing pathology of Alzheimer's disease (AD), which begins before clinical symptoms appear, requires the presence of both amyloid-beta (a-beta) plaque deposits and elevated levels of an altered protein called p-tau.

A new study shows that a new drug, called epothilone D (EpoD) is preventing neurological damage and improving cognitive performance in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease (AD).

A study published this week in the Journal of Neuroscience shows that the compound epothilone D (EpoD) is effective in preventing further neurological damage and improving cognitive performance in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease (AD).


Word of the Day
upstander
  • A person who stands up for something, as contrasted to a bystander who remains inactive.
  • One of the upright handlebars on a traditional Inuit sled.
The word 'upstander' in the first sense here is a play on the word 'bystander' and the idea of 'standing up' for something.
