New genetic risk factors for Parkinson`s discovered

In what could lead to new treatment for Parkinson`s disease, scientists have identified 24 genetic risk factors involved in the disease, including six that had not been previously identified.

Exposure to pesticides may increase Parkinson`s risk

A new study has found a specific gene that may explain why some people are particularly susceptible to developing Parkinson`s after exposure to certain pesticides.

New drug target for Alzheimer`s identified

Researchers have identified abnormal expression of genes, resulting from DNA relaxation, that can be detected in the brain and blood of Alzheimer`s patients.

New study provides answers to fundamental questions about Alzheimer`s

A new study has revealed fundamental issues about Alzheimer`s disease, including where it starts, why it starts there, and how it spreads.

New gene breakthrough brings early Alzheimer`s diagnoses closer to reality

A team of researchers have uncovered a second rare genetic mutation which strongly increases the risk of Alzheimer`s disease in later life.

Now, new method to predicted Alzheimer`s disease within 2 years of screening

A new study has shown a way to accurately predicted early onset of Alzheimer`s disease within two years of screening.

How exposure to pesticides increases Parkinson`s disease risk

Researchers have found that genetic mutation combined with exposure to pesticides increases risk of Parkinson`s disease and other neurodegenerative diseases, by killing dopamine-containing neurons.

Protein that can be targeted to treat Alzheimer`s at early stage identified

A team of researchers have discovered in a model of Alzheimer`s disease that early accumulation of a small protein, known as amyloid beta, in the blood vessels of the brain can drive early cognitive impairment.

Novel therapeutic approach may help make Lou Gehrig`s disease history

Scientists have identified a novel therapeutic approach for the most frequent genetic cause of Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis.

Lou Gehrig`s disease`s mechanism identified

Researchers have linked the toxic build-up of certain proteins and related molecules in cells, including neurons, to mutations in a gene that causes amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) and other neurodegenerative disorders.
