Dementia is a major public health issue with rising prevalence rates, but many individuals remain undiagnosed. Accurate and timely diagnosis is key for the optimal targeting of interventions. A noninvasive, easily measurable peripheral biomarker would have greatest utility in population-wide diagnostic screening. Epigenetics, including DNA methylation, is implicated in dementia; Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

In aggressive pursuit of its vision of a world without Alzheimer’s, the Alzheimer’s Association made its largest-ever research investment in 2017 with grants totaling more than $28 million to over 129 scientific investigations. As the world’s leading nonprofit funder of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) research, the Association is accelerating the field Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

Researchers are well aware that significant delays can occur after submitting their protocols to their institutional review boards (IRBs), whether hospital or university based, and whether their project is already funded or not. If the project is multisite and involving multiple IRBs, the delays can be exponential. Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

The 2-year Finnish Geriatric Intervention Study to Prevent Cognitive Impairment and Disability (FINGER) multidomain lifestyle intervention trial (NCT01041989) demonstrated beneficial effects on cognition. We investigated whether sociodemographics, socioeconomic status, baseline cognition, or cardiovascular factors influenced intervention effects on cognition. Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

Scientific evidence collected over the past four decades suggests that a loss of cholinergic innervation in the cerebral cortex of patients with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an early pathogenic event correlated with cognitive impairment. This evidence led to the formulation of the “cholinergic hypothesis of AD” and the development of Read & Research Alzheimer’s More
