A new study finds that the cancer drug imatinib does not lower Aβ in humans, casting doubt on a previously described relationship between imatinib, γ-secretase activating protein (GSAP), and Aβ.
Known for his contributions to the fundamental understanding of the tau protein, Skip Binder leaves his mark on the Alzheimer's field.
Changing ApoE levels in midlife influences Aβ pathology in mice, supporting an ApoE-oriented therapeutic strategy in Alzheimer’s disease.
Sleeping in an MRI scanner, babies with ApoE4 genotype reveal myelination and structural differences in brain areas affected in people with Alzheimer’s disease.
People with neurodegeneration but not brain amyloid surface in two new studies of preclinical AD, suggesting this odd population is both legitimate and potentially large.
Allegations of falsified data embroil Japanese ADNI; project leaders respond that data corrections followed quality-control procedures.
Meet ADCS-PACC, C3: Composites that measure subtle changes in cognition appear reliable, clearing the way for their use in clinical trials of people with presymptomatic AD.
New strategies may help find and retain participants for Alzheimer’s trials.
New research strengthens the idea that microglia do far more than scour the brain for emergencies.
In neurodegenerative disease, tau is in the dendrites, and scientists are beginning to flesh out ways to block what it does there.
Early dysfunction in Alzheimer’s may start in the lateral entorhinal cortex and spread from there to connected cortical brain regions.
Researchers have co-opted a molecular transport system to shuttle Aβ antibodies across the mouse blood-brain barrier. They predict the shuttle could smuggle a variety of drugs into the brain.
A transcription factor thought to mark stressed-out motor neurons activates genes that help them survive. It maintains muscle mass, but not strength.
More evidence that an antisense RNA strategy might work for certain types of ALS and FTD.
Screens of yeast and human-derived neurons uncover reasons for α-synuclein toxicity and potential ways to prevent it.
