- Research on intermittent fasting shows health benefits— Summary of evidence for intermittent fasting concludes wide-ranging health benefits, but more research is needed on long-term and lifespan effects.
- Test distinguishes Parkinson's disease from related condition— A test that uses samples of cerebrospinal fluid was able to distinguish Parkinson’s disease from a related condition called multiple system atrophy with 95% accuracy.
- Blood test method may predict Alzheimer's protein deposits in brain— Researchers report an advance in the development of a blood test that could help detect pathological Alzheimer’s disease in people who are showing signs of dementia. This approach could be less invasive and less costly than current brain imaging and spinal fluid tests.
- Large study explores age of onset of frontotemporal dementia by genetics, family history— Large international study funded in part by NIA and the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke (NINDS) shows how genetics and family history relate to age of onset and death in people with genetic frontotemporal dementia.
- Faulty protein connections short-circuit brain in Alzheimer's disease— A novel mechanism of Alzheimer’s disease, the epichaperome, disrupts protein networks in the brain, leading to cognitive decline, a mouse study finds. PU-AD reversed the harm.
- Adaptive immune cells found in blood, spinal fluid and brain add to understanding of Alzheimer's— The discovery of specific T cells in the blood, spinal fluid and brain of people with Alzheimer’s furthers knowledge of how the adaptive immune system may affect neurodegeneration.
- Higher daily step count linked with lower all-cause mortality— In a new study, higher daily step counts were associated with lower mortality risk from all causes. The research team, which included investigators from the NIA, National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), also found that the number of steps a person takes each day, but not the intensity of stepping, had a strong association with mortality.
