Anti-TNF Therapies for Rheumatoid Arthritis Could Reduce Alzheimer’s Risk

Anti-TNF therapies commonly used to treat rheumatoid arthritis have been found to potentially reduce the risk of developing Alzheimer’s dementia among people with rheumatoid arthritis, according to research presented this week at the American College of Rheumatology Annual Scientific Meeting in Atlanta.

Add beets to the list of superfoods vital to your diet: A new study suggests that a daily dose of beet juice boosts blood flow to the brain, keeping your mind sharp and potentially creating a safeguard against dementia as you age. Researchers with Wake Forest University’s Translational Science Center; Fostering Independence in Aging took a closer look at beet juice because it is rich in nitrate.

Vitamin B12 May Reduce Risk of Alzheimer’s Disease

A new study shows that vitamin B12 may protect against Alzheimer’s disease, adding more evidence to the scientific debate about whether the vitamin is effective in reducing the risk of memory loss. The research will be published in the October 19, 2010, issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Columbia University Medical Center Joins Study to Find Earliest Changes in the Brain That May Lead to Alzheimer’s Disease

Volunteers in New York, NY are being sought for a clinical study examining the subtle changes that may take place in the brains of older people many years before overt symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) appear. Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center are specifically looking for people with the very earliest complaints of memory problems that affect their daily activities.

Early Role of Mitochondria in AD May Help Explain Limitations to Current Beta Amyloid Hypothesis

A new study in mouse models by researchers at Columbia University Medical Center has found that the brain’s mitochondria -- the powerhouses of the cell -- are one of the earliest casualties of the disease. The study, which appeared in the online Early Edition of PNAS, also found that impaired mitochondria then injure the neurons’ synapses, which are necessary for normal brain function.

Diabetes Gene Linked to Degeneration of Enzyme Involved in Alzheimer’s Disease Onset and Progression

Mount Sinai School of Medicine researchers have found that a gene associated with the onset of Type 2 diabetes also is found at lower-than-normal levels in people with Alzheimer’s disease.

Blood Test Could Diagnose Alzheimer’s Disease

A set of proteins found in blood serum shows promise as a sensitive and accurate way to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease, researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center have found as part of a statewide study.

Low Testosterone Linked to Alzheimer’s Disease

A research team that includes a Saint Louis University geriatrician found that having low testosterone may put older men at risk for Alzheimer’s disease. The researchers say the next step is to conduct a large study on testosterone to treat Alzheimer’s disease.
