Near-infrared photoactivatable oxygenation catalysts of amyloid peptide


A new, biocompatible photooxygenation catalyst that can selectively oxygenate and degrade the pathogenic aggregation of Alzheimer's disease (AD)-related amyloid-β peptide (Aβ) under near-infrared (NIR) light irradiation is developed. The catalyst was able to oxygenate Aβ embedded under the skin ...


neotiv secures seed funding from High-Tech Gründerfonds


From basic research straight to a digital medical product: this vision has been turned into reality by neotiv. The team headed by Chief Executive Officer Dr. Chris Rehse and dementia researcher Prof. Emrah Düzel develops user-friendly apps that are able to measure the psychological effects of ...

Alzheimer's drug turns back clock in powerhouse of cell


The experimental drug J147 is something of a modern elixir of life; it's been shown to treat Alzheimer's disease and reverse aging in mice and is almost ready for clinical trials in humans. Now, Salk scientists have solved the puzzle of what, exactly, J147 does. They report that the drug binds to ...


Research opens new avenue for treatment of Alzheimer’s disease


University of Florida neuroscientists have validated a potential pathway to halt the progression of Alzheimer’s disease, a debilitating neurodegenerative disorder that affects millions of Americans and is the most common cause of dementia. The investigators made the finding while studying the ...


Nanodiscs catch misfolding proteins red-handed


When proteins misfold, accumulate and clump around insulin-producing cells in the pancreas, they kill cells. Now, researchers, including University of Michigan biophysicists, have obtained a structural snapshot of these proteins when they are most toxic, detailing them down to the atomic ...

Protein-folding simulations sped up


Proteins, the ubiquitous workhorses of biochemistry, are huge molecules whose function depends on how they fold into intricate structures. To understand how these molecules work, researchers use computer modeling to calculate how proteins fold. Now, a new algorithm can accelerate those vital ...

New details on aged brain, Alzheimer's and dementia revealed


In a comprehensive analysis of samples from 107 aged human brains, researchers at the Allen Institute for Brain Science, UW Medicine and Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute have discovered details that will help researchers better understand the biological bases for Alzheimer's ...


Mechanism explains how seizures may lead to memory loss


Although it's been clear that seizures are linked to memory loss and other cognitive deficits in patients with Alzheimer's disease, how this happens has been puzzling. In a study a team of researchers reveals a mechanism that can explain how even relatively infrequent seizures can lead to ...

Opening up a new chapter for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's


A research team led by DGIST Professor Moon Cheil at the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences has identified the reason why the patients with the early stage of Alzheimer's fail to smell. The research team of Professor Moon Cheil conducted a joint research with the research teams led by ...


Is the Alzheimer's gene the ring leader or the sidekick?


The notorious genetic marker of Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia, ApoE4, may not be a lone wolf. Researchers from USC and the University of Manchester have found that another gene, TOMM40, complicates the picture. Although ApoE4 plays a greater role in some types of aging-related ...
