COMMENT I was very impressed with this sleep-mTORC1 study from Ted Abel’s lab. To my knowledge this is the first time that anyone found a specific molecular pathway, and even better, a specific molecular manipulation, that addresses the epidemic of sleep ...
COMMENT I think this research is significant for a couple of reasons. As with our previous work, this study actually measures the levels of persistent toxicants in the body so that specific chemicals that may contribute are identified. This is particularly ...
COMMENT This is a small, short-term but exciting study investigating the possible effects of Liraglutide on disease progression in Alzheimer’s. The headline findings are that patients on the active drug had a cessation in the decline of glucose metabolism in the ...
