Alzheimer’s Drug Elicits Quality of Life, Red Blood Cell Function Improvements in Sickle Cell Patients

A popular drug commonly used to treat Alzheimer’s disease has shown promise in laboratory and clinical trials for treating patients with sickle cell disease (SCD). Researchers have found that the molecule memantine stabilizes the development, longevity and function of red blood cells and is well-tolerated by SCD patients. The findings will be presented at the APS Physiological and Pathophysiological Consequences of Sickle Cell Disease conference.

Researchers Discover New Pathway for Handling Stress

Control-Pals22-composite.jpg

Researchers studying how animals respond to infections have found a new pathway that may help in tolerating stressors that damage proteins. Naming the pathway the Intracellular Pathogen Response, the scientists say it is a newly discovered way for animals to cope with certain types of stress and attacks, including heat shock.

The National Institutes of Health has awarded Albert Einstein College of Medicine nutrition scientist Yasmin Mossavar-Rahmani, Ph.D., R.D., a five-year, $4 million grant to test whether a diet rich in foods with anti-inflammatory properties can reduce cognitive decline and Alzheimer's disease risk. Middle-aged and older participants from the Bronx will follow this diet, which is designed to appeal to a multicultural population, and researchers will measure cognitive function over time to assess its impact.

Researchers Probe Brain Disease-Causing Proteins at the Atomic Level

Researchers studying a protein that causes a hereditary degenerative brain disease in humans have discovered that the human, mouse and hamster forms of the protein, which have nearly identical amino acid sequences, exhibit distinct three-dimensional structures at the atomic level.

Easy Test to Find Out if You May Have Early Signs of Dementia or Alzheimer's

Douglas Scharre, director of the division of Cognitive Neurology at the The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, talks about a test you can take to determine if you may have the early signs of demential or Alzheimer's. He also talks about how to approach family members, or loved ones, who are experiencing dementia or Alzheimer's. Free Test: http://sagetest.osu.edu
