Alzheimer’s-like brain changes found in cognitively normal elders with amyloid plaques

Researchers using two brain-imaging technologies have found that apparently normal older individuals with brain deposits of amyloid beta — the primary constituent of the plaques found in the brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients — also had changes in brain structure similar to those seen in Alzheimer’s patients. Results of the study may someday lead to [...]

Indications of Alzheimer’s disease may be evident decades before first signs of cognitive impairment

Researchers have found that patients with Alzheimer’s disease have lower glucose utilization in the brain than those with normal cognitive function, and that those decreased levels may be detectable approximately 20 years prior to the first symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease. This new finding could lead to the development of novel therapies to prevent the eventual [...]

Adult ADHD significantly increases risk of common form of dementia, study finds

Adults who suffer from attention-deficit and hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are more than three times as likely to develop a common form of degenerative dementia than those without. Researchers confirmed the link during a study of 360 patients with degenerative dementia and 149 healthy controls, matched by age, sex and education. ScienceDaily: Dementia News

Lower biomarker levels, less education associated with greater cognitive decline

Older adults without dementia and with lower levels in plasma of the biomarkers beta-amyloid 42/40 (protein fragments) had an increased rate of cognitive decline over a period of 9 years, according to a new study. The researchers also found that this relationship was stronger among individuals with less education and lower levels of literacy. ScienceDaily: [...]

Imaging procedure can identify biomarker associated with Alzheimer’s disease

Preliminary research suggests that use of a type of molecular imaging procedure may have the ability to detect the presence of beta-amyloid in the brains of individuals during life, a biomarker that is identified during autopsy to confirm a diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a new study.

Study predicts risk of memory loss in healthy, older adults

The combined results of a genetic blood test and a five-minute functional MRI done by researchers successfully classified more than three-quarters of healthy older adults, many of whom were destined to develop cognitive decline within 18 months of testing. ScienceDaily: Dementia News

Asthma drug could help control or treat Alzheimer’s disease

A drug used to treat asthma has been shown to help reduce the formation of amyloid beta, a peptide that is implicated in the development of Alzheimer’s disease, and the subsequent build up of amyloid plaques in the brain by more than 50 percent. ScienceDaily: Dementia News
