Using a new optogenetic model for TDP-43 phase transitions, scientists see the protein aggregate outside, not inside stress granules. The model distinguishes physiological from abnormal phase transition.
With plasma tests performing in AIBL staging, scientists are sharing data across platforms and cohorts, and tackling standardization to avoid time lost to irreproducibility.
Deleting BACE1 with CRISPR nanocomplexes tempered Aβ pathology and boosted memory.
In Year Three, GAP Trial Network Is Starting to Hum Getting to Go: GAP-Net Sets Sight on Faster Start Three years after the Global Alzheimer’s Platform (GAP) Foundation launched GAP-Net, a standing network of clinical trial sites optimized for Alzheimer’s ...
From central IRBs, certified raters, to local transport: Changes large and small are needed to ramp up drug testing in Alzheimer’s.
Award recognizes his contributions to basic and clinical research.
With three trials and initiatives to boost recruitment, GAP-Net is gaining some traction in the field.
Experts said Phase 3 data did not prove the device could slow AD.
Among 20 focus areas, 47 research recommendations cover the gamut from basic science to health disparities.
A majority of amyloid PET scans led physicians to change how they managed a patient’s disease. The effect on later outcomes is yet to be come.
Transcranial, alternating electrical current restored neuronal synchrony in older people, rejuvenating working memory. For an hour or two.
Subgroup analysis addresses APOE4 randomization imbalance, claims treatment with this anti-Aβ protofibril antibody slowed cognitive decline.
After years of grunt work on next-gen sequencing and expression analysis, geneticists are finally reaping results. The new genes underscore the role of known pathways and cell types in disease.
Presented at AD/PD, the discovery by scientists in Uppsala is the first APP deletion found to cause Alzheimer’s disease. The same group found the Swedish and Arctic APP mutations.
Long-term treatment with the anti-sense oligonucleotide led to motor benefits in an extension trial of children 2 to 15 years old.
