Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia worldwide and is primarily attributed to increasing longevity, especially in Western countries. While Alzheimer’s affects both men and women, it is far more common in the latter.
There are many risk factors for dementia, including Alzheimer’s disease. A majority of these are the same for cerebrovascular and cardiovascular pathologies, including obesity, hypertension (elevated blood pressure), hypercholesterolemia (elevated blood cholesterol), high sodium intake, and hyperglycemia (elevated blood sugar levels).
Sleep requirements change throughout life. As part of normal aging, sleep generally becomes briefer and fragmented, with older people often having multiple naps throughout the day. This may not be the pattern of sleep seen in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative conditions, however.
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a neurodegenerative disease that progresses over time and autopsies show that hallmarks of the disease include pathological changes to patients’ brain structures, such as neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) and amyloid deposition.
UC San Francisco researchers, in collaboration with the unique Brazilian Biobank for Aging Studies at the University of São Paulo, have shown that the earliest stages of the brain degeneration associated with Alzheimer's disease are linked to neuropsychiatric symptoms including anxiety, depression, loss of appetite, and sleep disturbances.
At first glance, Down syndrome and Alzheimer's disease, two severe brain abnormalities, may seem to have little in common. Down syndrome is a hereditary disease, the source of which has long been recognized--a triplication of chromosome 21.
The objective of the research, undertaken in the laboratories of the IBPM, is to develop a model for studying Alzheimer's disease of sporadic origin, in other words, not due to a hereditary genetic mutation.
Results from two studies show that a new, non-invasive imaging device can see signs of Alzheimer's disease in a matter of seconds. The researchers show that the small blood vessels in the retina at the back of the eye are altered in patients with Alzheimer's.
