Scientists identify the protein ‘signature’ of Alzheimer’s

A new study has found a unique set of proteins that distinguish Alzheimer’s disease from other neurodegenerative conditions and healthy brains. This provides clues about the causes of the condition and could inspire new treatments. Share on PinterestA new study may have uncovered fresh clues about the development of Alzheimer’s disease. Alzheimer’s disease involves a […]

Balanced protein intake important to retain muscle mass – Medical News Bulletin

Having a balanced protein intake across all meals can help prevent age-related muscle loss. As we age, we lose muscle mass and muscle function, known as sarcopenia. Sarcopenia makes older adults more susceptible to frailty, mortality, and falls. Thus, maintaining healthy muscle mass is important to prevent these adverse effects of aging. Typically, muscle mass […]

Innovative method stops toxic protein buildup

Instead of targeting the tricky protein behind Parkinson’s, a new compound attacks the RNA that produces it. Share on PinterestNew research finds a way to block the toxic accumulation of a protein that causes neurons to degenerate in Parkinson’s disease. Parkinson’s disease is a neurodegenerative disorder characterized by tremor, slowness of movement, limb rigidity, and […]

Low production of a key protein is possibly linked to autism, study finds – Medical News Bulletin

A decrease in the production of the translocator protein is possibly linked to the development of autism, but more studies are needed for confirmation. The cause of autism is unknown, but emerging evidence points to the inflammation of brain tissue caused by a specific substance called, translocator protein. The translocator protein is involved in our […]
