Pleiotropy and promiscuity in pharmacogenomics for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease and related risk factors
Discover the genes being targeted by novel Alzheimer’s treatments and how polytherapy may be optimized in treatment of the disease, in this review from Future Neurology.
Genetics are a risk factor for developing dementia due to Alzheimer’s disease and now several Alzheimer’s prevention trials are focused on individuals, who based on their age and genetic profile, are at high risk for developing the disease.
A long-term study suggests that traumatic brain injury can have long-term effects that increase the risk of developing dementia.
Researchers have developed a series of novel single cell sequencing techniques that could pave the way for the mapping of the cellular origins of a variety of brain disorders.
New research suggests risk of suicide attempt is increased by the interaction of bipolar disorder genetic risk and trauma
Results from the 60-year Stirling County State Study have reported depression remains strongly associated with a higher risk of early death in men and women, despite increased awareness of mental illness, with this risk increasing for women in recent years.
With rates of Alzheimer’s disease predicted to continue rising, researchers have directed their focus toward individualized prevention.
