Researchers also found that the number of brain lesions did not change even if participants used high blood pressure drugs. They analysed 1,288 older people and found that participants whose blood pressure was 10 per cent higher than average were 46 per cent more likely to have brain lesions. The pensioners with higher blood pressure […]

Biogen and Japan’s Eisai said they had positive results from a midstage study of an experimental Alzheimer’s drug, though experts said it was too soon to say the drug marks a real advance.
DEMENTIA risk could be lowered by making diet or exercise changes. Your body shape could reveal your risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease symptoms. Being “skinny fat” could increase your chances of the brain condition – what does it mean to be skinny fat?
However, they were also keen to point out that a “medium” or “large” amount of alcohol per day had the reverse affect. Previous studies have shown Alzheimer’s disease is associated with the toxic build-up of proteins in the brain, which cause neuron cells to die. Studies now focus on the link between the brain’s capacity […]
After a series of high-profile drug failures, researchers are being forced to question their primary hypothesis of Alzheimer’s disease.
CHOLESTEROL could trigger the beginning of dementia disease Alzheimer’s, scientists said last night. British researchers have shown how the fatty substance commonly linked with heart disease could also speed up the progression of the incurable brain-wasting illness.
DEMENTIA and Alzheimer’s disease symptoms tend to get worse over time. These are the early warning signs of the brain condition that you should be aware of. Are you at risk?
DEMENTIA and Alzheimer’s disease symptoms include memory loss, repetitively, and confusion. But who’s at risk of developing the brain condition? Early signs of Alzheimer’s mainly affect these groups of people.
ALZHEIMER’S researchers have proposed a radical change in the way the disease is defined, focusing on biological changes in the body rather than clinical symptoms such as memory loss and cognitive decline.
