Antibiotic treatment alleviates Alzheimer’s disease symptoms in male mice, study reveals

The Rockefeller University Press

Researchers at The University of Chicago have demonstrated that the type of bacteria living in the gut can influence the development of Alzheimer’s disease symptoms in mice. The study, which will be published May 16 in the Journal of Experimental Medicine, shows that, by altering the gut microbiome, long-term antibiotic treatment reduces inflammation and slows the growth of amyloid plaques in the brains of male mice, though the same treatment has no effect on female animals.

Many older Americans expect to lose brainpower, poll finds, but most don’t ask doctors about preventing dementia

Michigan Medicine - University of Michigan

Many Americans in their 50s and early 60s are worried about declining brain health, especially if they have loved ones with memory loss and dementia, a new national poll finds. But while the majority of those polled say they take supplements or do puzzles in an effort to stave off brain decline, very few of them have talked with their doctors about evidence-based ways to prevent memory loss. So they may miss out on proven strategies to keep their brains sharp into their later years.

Clinical Trial Explores Opening Blood-Brain Barrier In Fight Against Alzheimer's

Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center

A new clinical trial at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center and two other sites is testing an innovative procedure that may provide hope in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease. The non-invasive procedure uses low-intensity focused ultrasound to open the blood-brain barrier.
