Healthy Heart in 20s = Healthy Brain in 40s

People who take care of their heart health in young adulthood may have larger brains in middle-age, compared to people who do not take care of their heart health, according to a study published in the July 19, 2017, online issue of Neurology®, the medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology.

Penn Study Suggests that Combining CAR T Cells with Existing Immunotherapies May Overcome Resistance in Glioblastomas

Genetically modified “hunter” T cells successfully migrated to and penetrated a deadly type of brain tumor known as glioblastoma (GBM) in a clinical trial of the new therapy, but the cells triggered an immunosuppressive tumor microenvironment and faced a complex mutational landscape that will need to be overcome to better treat this aggressive cancer, Penn Medicine researchers report in a new study this week in Science Translational Medicine.

Memory Takes Time, Researchers Conclude

How short-term memories become long-term ones has frequently been explored by researchers. While a definitive answer remains elusive, NYU scientists Thomas Carew and Nikolay Kukushkin conclude that this transformation is best explained by a “temporal hierarchy” of “time windows” that collectively alter the state of the brain.

ALS: New Clues to the Cause and How Future Drugs Might Reverse Disease

The protein TDP-43 is thought to cause muscle degeneration in patients with ALS. UNC and NC State researchers found that a specific chemical modification promotes TDP-43 clumping in animals. In muscle cells, scientists reversed protein clumping and prevented the sIBM-related muscle weakness.

Blood Test IDs Key Alzheimer’s Marker

A new study led by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis suggests that measures of amyloid beta in the blood have the potential to help identify people with altered levels of amyloid in their brains or cerebrospinal fluid. Currently, the only way to detect amyloid beta in the brain is via PET scanning or a spinal tap.
