Probing Alzheimer’s at Both Ends of the Spectrum

Researchers from Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine have received two grant awards, in partnership with investigators from other institutions, from the National Institutes of Health to conduct major studies on Alzheimer’s disease, the most common form of memory loss and other forms of dementia in older persons.

Holiday Loneliness Can Be Harmful to Seniors’ Health

rosen-sonja.rosens.jpg

Loneliness in older Americans is linked to serious medical conditions, including Alzheimer’s disease, stroke and heart disease as well as a higher risk of premature death. But loneliness can be easily overlooked as a health risk because healthcare providers can neglect asking their older patients about their social lives, and many older adults are too proud or embarrassed to ask for help, experts say. Cedars-Sinai geriatricians suggest tips for seniors who may feel especially isolated during the holidays.

Clinical Trials on Alzheimer’s Disease: Shifting the Focus to Prevention

This past decade, Alzheimer’s science has undergone a paradigm shift toward the disease’s early, silent phase. For trials, this means change at every level: new participants, new screening tools, new outcome measurements. What’s the progress?

About 15 million Americans will have either Alzheimer’s dementia or mild cognitive impairment by 2060, up from approximately 6.08 million this year. The findings highlight the need to develop preventive measures that could slow the progression of the disease in at risk for Alzheimer’s dementia.

Alzheimer’s Damage in Mice Reduced with Compound That Targets APOE Gene

Figures.jpg

People who carry the APOE4 genetic variant face a substantial risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease. Now, researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have identified a compound that targets the APOE protein in the brains of mice and protects against damage induced by the Alzheimer’s protein amyloid beta. The findings suggest that APOE could potentially be a target for treatment or prevention.
