University of Rhode Island Group Takes Holistic Look at Lifestyle and Dementia

Faculty, staff and graduate students are taking on one of society’s most vexing health challenges: how to prevent or slow the onset of dementia through changes in diet and exercise. And what sets the Lifestyle Interventions Group apart is its inclusion of disciplines beyond the typical confines of brain science.

Anti-Epilepsy Drug Restores Normal Brain Activity in Mild Alzheimer’s Disease

In a recent feasibility study, BIDMC tested an anti-epileptic drug for its potential impact on the brain activity of patients with mild Alzheimer’s disease. The team documented changes in patients’ EEGs that suggest the drug could have a beneficial effect.

Leisure Activities Lower Blood Pressure in Alzheimer’s Caregivers

Going for a walk outside, reading, listening to music—these and other enjoyable activities can reduce blood pressure for elderly caregivers of spouses with Alzheimer’s disease, suggests a study in Psychosomatic Medicine: Journal of Biobehavioral Medicine, the official journal of the American Psychosomatic Society. The journal is published by Wolters Kluwer.

FAU Launches Unique Dementia Prevention Program and Center

Is it possible to prevent dementia from happening in the first place? That’s what a leading FAU neuroscientist plans to prove using an innovative approach that defies the idea that “one-size-fits-all” when it comes to battling Alzheimer’s disease, Lewy Body Dementia, Parkinson’s disease and other related disorders. Using a personalized approach and precision medicine to reduce risk, this center is one of only a handful of centers in the world that focuses on dementia prevention.

Pilot Study Finds a Possible Link Between Type I Interferons and a Natural Improvement of Rheumatoid Arthritis During Pregnancy

An international US-Danish team of scientists, led by Damini Jawaheer, Ph.D. at the UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland Research Institute, has identified a possible link between type I interferons and a natural improvement of rheumatoid arthritis (RA) during pregnancy. These findings could have significant implications in the development of safer therapies for RA. This study entitled, “Pregnancy-induced gene expression changes in vivo among women with rheumatoid arthritis: a pilot study,” was published in Arthritis Research & Therapy.
