18th Annual Conference on Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Showcases Non-Amyloid Research

/PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Nearly 200 academic and industry researchers came together to share updates on preclinical and clinical-stage Alzheimer's disease research at the 18th Annual Conference on Alzheimer's Drug Discovery. The two-day conference, organized by the Alzheimer's Drug Discovery Foundation (ADDF), is the first and only to focus solely on non-amyloid drug programs in development.

Targeting Risk Factors May Prevent Dementia, According to Lancet Commission

Dementia can potentially be prevented by targeting specific risk factors like education in early life, hearing in midlife, and smoking later in life, according to newly published research by the Lancet Commission on Dementia Prevention, Intervention, and Care. The commission, of which Johns Hopkins School of Nursing(JHSON) faculty member Laura N. Gitlin, PhD, was a member, compiled current research and emerging knowledge about dementia to develop an analysis and plan for moving forward in care.

Eye Changes May Signal Frontotemporal Lobe Degeneration

Frontotemporal degeneration (FTD) is a progressive neurodegenerative condition that is present in tens of thousands of Americans, but is often difficult to diagnose accurately. Now in a study published this week online ahead of print in Neurology, researchers from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania have found evidence that a simple eye exam and retinal imaging test may help improve that accuracy.

Human Skin Cells Transformed Directly Into Motor Neurons

In new research, scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have converted skin cells from healthy adults directly into motor neurons without going through a stem cell state. The technique makes it possible to study motor neurons of the human central nervous system in the lab. Unlike commonly studied mouse motor neurons, human motor neurons growing in the lab would be a new tool since researchers can’t take samples of these neurons from living people but can easily take skin samples.

For Some, Smell Test May Signal Parkinson’s Disease up to 10 Years Before Diagnosis

A simple scratch-and-sniff test may one day be able to help identify some people at greater risk of developing Parkinson’s disease up to 10 years before the disease could be diagnosed, according to a new study published in the September 6, 2017, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Unraveling Alzheimer’s: New Study Documents How Brain Cells Go Bad

COHEN_calciumincrease_neurons_ONESLIDEONLY.jpg

Scientists have known that abnormal protein deposits and swarms of activated immune cells accumulate in brains of people with Alzheimer’s. Now researchers have untangled how these proteins and inflammation interact in lab experiments to reveal how therapies might reverse the disease process.
