Recent Innovation in Neurology: Brain changes related to Alzheimer's could start at the age of 40’s

Researchers may have advanced understanding of the brain’s mechanisms behind Alzheimer's disease, after detection a process that leads the buildup of toxic proteins that is a hallmark of the condition. This white matter disease is characterized by the degeneration of white matter. The brain tissue that contains nerve fibers, the thread-like structures that carry signals from the nerve cells, or neurons, to other areas of the body. This study reveals how the destruction of pericytes the cells that surround small blood vessels lead to white matter damage in the brain.

Latest discoveries in Stem Cell Therapy which can improve Survival of a Patient

Scientists have successfully identified a secretion-mediated pathway that is essential for the survival of glioma stem cells within aggressive brain tumors." Glioblastoma multiforme is the most common and aggressive primary brain tumor and has one of the worst survival rates of all cancers. Despite surgery, radiation and chemotherapy, these tumors virtually always become resistant to therapy and eventually recur. The cancer stem cells within these tumors are thought to be important drivers of resistance and recurrence.
