  • Dead probiotic strain shown to reduce harmful, aging-related inflammation

    Scientists at Wake Forest School of Medicine have identified a dead probiotic that reduces age-related leaky gut in older mice. The study is published in the journal GeroScience. But what exactly is leaky gut and what does a probiotic -- dead or alive -- have to do with it? Some research has indicated that leaky gut, in which microbes and bacteria in the gut leak into the blood stream through holes or cracks in the intestinal lining, causes an increase in low-grade inflammation, and these conditions are common in older people. This resulting inflammation is thought to play a role...
  • Eating more ketones may fight against Alzheimer's disease (Keto helps)

    A ketone-supplemented diet may protect neurons from death during the progression of Alzheimer's disease, according to research in mice recently published in JNeurosci. Early in the development of Alzheimer's disease, the brain becomes over excited, potentially through the loss of inhibitory, or GABAergic, interneurons that keep other neurons from signaling too much. Because interneurons require more energy compared to other neurons, they may be more susceptible to dying when they encounter the Alzheimer's disease protein amyloid beta. Amyloid beta has been shown to damage mitochondria -- the metabolic engine for cells -- by interfering with SIRT3, a protein that preserves...
  • World's first monkey-pig hybrids are born in Chinese lab as part of ground-breaking bid to grow human organs inside animals for transplants

    Two chimera piglets containing monkey DNA have been born in China. Although both died within a week and appeared to be normal, the baby animals had genetic material from cynomolgus monkeys in their heart, liver, spleen, lung and skin. Scientists said the research, which required more than 4,000 embryos to get the piglets, aims to find ways of growing human organs in animals for transplantation. “This is the first report of full-term monkey-pig chimeras”, Tang Hai at the State Key Laboratory of Stem Cell and Reproductive Biology in Beijing told New Scientist. Five-day old piglet embryos had monkey stem cells...

    If approved, it could not only help people with Parkinson's but also Alzheimer's. A drug that curbs delusions in Parkinson's patients did the same for people with Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia. That's the result of a study in which the benefit was so clear, the trial was stopped early. If regulators agree, the drug -- pimavanserin -- could become the first new medicine for Alzheimer's in nearly two decades. It's sold under the brand name Nuplazid by Acadia Pharmaceuticals Inc. About 8 million Americans have dementia, and up to 30% develop psychosis. The Associated Press reports pimavanserin targets...

    Twenty-five years ago this month, President Ronald Reagan told the nation he’d been diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease. “I now begin the journey that will lead me into the sunset of my life,” he wrote in a letter addressed to his “Fellow Americans,” dated November 5, 1994. Reagan wrote that he and his wife, Nancy, decided to disclose his condition in hopes it would increase attention for the disease that slowly, but surely, robs the mind of its memories. “In opening our hearts, we hope this might promote greater awareness of this condition,” he wrote. “Perhaps it will encourage a clearer...

    WASHINGTON, DC – Young seniors in the early stages of dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease, are a step closer to much needed support programs available under the Older Americans Act [OAA] with the passage in the House of Representatives earlier this week of the OAA Reauthorization, reports the Association of Mature American Citizens [AMAC]. The Reauthorization legislation would expand access to some OAA services to individuals under 60 years of age who suffer from early onset of the illness. It now goes to the Senate for a vote where it has broad-based bipartisan backing. “The onslaught of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease,...

    DM ^ | 9/18/2019 | SAM BLANCHARD SENIOR HEALTH REPORTER FOR MAILONLINE
    A head device that zaps the brain with electromagnetic waves appears to have reversed the effects of Alzheimer's in a trial. Eight patients with mild or moderate forms of the brain-destroying disorder took part in experimental transcranial electromagnetic treatment (TEMT). It involved them wearing a skullcap of magnets which sent electric pulses to break down build-ups of proteins known to stop nerve cells working properly. Seven of the patients showed a 'highly significant improvement' in tests of their memory, language, attention, behaviour and moods. Researchers hope the promising results could be the start of a breakthrough in Alzheimer's research, which...
  • Biden's Brain Is Swiss Cheese And It's Creepy That We're Not Talking About It

    I didn’t watch the last Democratic presidential primary debates because I figured that without Tulsi Gabbard in there shaking things up it would be a boring, vapid parade of insubstantial verbal foam, and I love myself too much to go through such a horrible ordeal. By all accounts my prediction was correct, but I did miss one thing that’s been making the rounds in video clips for the last couple of days which I find absolutely bizarre. [Snip] Most of you have probably heard about Biden’s infamous "record player" comment by now, but for those of you who missed it,...

    During a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Friday, Joe Biden fabricated an emotional story about pinning a medal on a reluctant Navy captain in honor of his daring attempt to rescue a downed comrade in Afghanistan. Addressing a crowd of over 400, Biden recalled how the captain rappelled down a 60-foot ravine under fire to rescue the body of a fallen American soldier only to resist when then-vice president Biden tried to pin a Silver Star on his chest to honor his efforts. “He said, ‘Sir, I don’t want the damn thing!’ ” Biden shouted, recounting the apocryphal event....

    VIDEO Now that Trump-Russia collusion has been proven to be a FRAUD, impeachment is off the table. So what to do? How about if we pretend that President Trump has Alzheimer's and maybe he could be removed via the 25th Amendment.

    MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace and Al Sharpton suggested that President Donald Trump is showing signs of mental decline, citing his performance at his rally in New Hampshire last night. “He repeated points he had already made earlier in the evening as if he did not remember already making them,” Wallace told her panel on Deadline: White House Friday, citing reporting from The New York Times. “David Brooks reported in 2017 that a bunch of Republicans came out of a meeting with Donald Trump explained some signs that were similar to the early stages of Alzheimer’s.” “You’ve got reporting … that in...

    Alheimer's? Yes! That's just the ticket. Since the Mueller Report definitely showed that there was no Trump-Russia collusion, impeachment is no longer an option. So what to do? Why, pretend that President Donald Trump is in the early stages of Alzheimer's and suggest his removal via the 25th Amendment. That was the wild idea of Nicolle Wallace and her MSNBC panel, including Al Sharpton, on her Deadline: White House show on Friday. The funniest thing about this fantasy is they think the big roadblock to it happening is that his cabinet is not intact.

    We know a healthy diet can protect against conditions like type 2 diabetes, obesity and heart disease. Fortunately, evidence shows that what's good for the body is generally also good for the brain. Oxidative stress As we age, our metabolism becomes less efficient, and is less able to get rid of compounds generated from what's called "oxidative stress". The body's normal chemical reactions can sometimes cause chemical damage, or generate side-products known as free radicals—which in turn cause damage to other chemicals in the body. To neutralise these free radicals, our bodies draw on protective mechanisms, in the form of...

    Neural computation occurs in large neural networks within dynamic brain states, yet it remains poorly understood if the functions are performed by a specific subset of neurons or if they occurred in specific, dynamic regions. In a recent study, Wesley Clawson and co-workers at the Institute of Neuroscience Systems in France, used high density recordings in the hippocampus, medial entorhinal and medial prefrontal cortex of the rat. Using the animal model, they identified computing substates where specific computing hub neurons performed well-defined operations on storage and sharing in a brain state-dependent manner. The scientists retrieved distinct computing substates in each...

    The monkeys in Douglas Munoz’s Kingston lab look like other monkeys. They socialize and move around and eat and drink in the same way. They don’t fall over or stagger around. In fact, the only thing separating the macaques from their unaltered lab mates is the elevated level of a specific human protein implanted inside their brains — proteins that accumulate in the brains of humans with Alzheimer’s disease. The monkeys have been injected with beta-amyloid, a molecule that, in high-enough amounts, is toxic to human brain tissue. Munoz and collaborators are studying the earliest changes in those monkey cerebrums....
