In Alzheimer's mice, memory restored with cancer drug

Posted: at 5:47 pm


Memory and as well as connections between brain cells were restored in mice with a model of Alzheimer's given an experimental cancer drug, Yale School of Medicine researchers reported in the journal Annals of Neurology.

The drug, AZD05030, developed by Astra Zeneca proved disappointing in treating solid tumors but appears to block damage triggered during the formation of amyloid-beta plaques, a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease. The new study, funded by an innovative National Institutes of Health (NIH) program to test failed drugs on different diseases, has led to the launch of human trials to test the efficacy of AZD05030 in Alzheimer's patients.

"With this treatment, cells under bombardment by beta amyloid plaques show restored synaptic connections and reduced inflammation, and the animal's memory, which was lost during the course of the disease, comes back," said Stephen M. Strittmatter, the Vincent Coates Professor of Neurology and senior author of the study.

In the last five years, scientists have developed a more complete understanding of the complex chain of events that leads to Alzheimer's disease. The new drug blocks one of those molecular steps, activation of the enzyme FYN, which leads to the loss of synaptic connections between brain cells. Several other steps in the disease process have the potential to be targets for new drugs, Strittmatter said.

"The speed with which this compound moved to human trials validates our New Therapeutic Uses program model and serves our mission to deliver more treatments to more patients more quickly," said Christopher P. Austin, M.D., director of NIH's National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), which funded the work.

New Rochelle, NY, March 31, 2015-The proposed link between caffeine and reductions in the beta amyloid plaque accumulation characteristic of Alzheimer's disease (AD) suggest a possible role for caffeine in AD treatment. The latest evidence linking beta amyloid protein to Alzheimer's disease and exploring the relationship between caffeine and beta amyloid are featured in a review article in Journal of Caffeine Research: The International Multidisciplinary Journal of Caffeine Science, a peer-reviewed journal from Mary Ann Liebert, Inc., publishers. The article is available free on the Journal of Caffeine Research website at http://online.liebertpub.com/doi/full/10.1089/jcr.2014.0027 until May 1, 2015.

In the article "Caffeine as Treatment for Alzheimer's: A Review", Abhishek Mohan, BS, Old Dominion University (Norfolk, VA), and coauthors identify the potential opportunities for using caffeine to reduce beta amyloid levels as a means of preventing, treating, and slowing the progression of Alzheimer's disease.

"To say that strategizing medicines to treat Alzheimer's disorders is important is an understatement," says Patricia A. Broderick, PhD, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Caffeine Research, Medical Professor in Physiology, Pharmacology & Neuroscience, The Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, The City College of New York, The City University of New York, and Adjunct Professor in Neurology, New York University Langone Medical Center and Comprehensive Epilepsy Center. "Moreover, to say that caffeine is just an ordinary staple in our lives, whether caffeine is part of coffee or a chocolate bar, is also an understatement. Thus, what Dr. Mohan has published herein is elegant in its simplicity; his work is critically on target."

Alzheimer's numbers on the rise in Illinois

Posted: at 5:47 pm


QUINCY, Ill. (WGEM) - There were nearly 3,000 deaths from Alzheimer's disease in 2012, making it the sixth leading cause of death in Illinois, according to numbers from the Alzheimer's Association.

There are 210,000 Illinoisans living with Alzheimer's and it's set to increase to 230,000 by 2020.

Alzheimer's is the only cause of death in the top 10 in America that cannot be prevented, slowed or cured. Dr. Austin Hake with Quincy Medical Group feels the numbers are going up because doctors are getting better at detecting it, and more of the baby boomer generation is getting older.

Hake says though you can't change family history, it doesn't mean you will get the disease.

"There are some things that we can work on that we know are good for the brain," Hake said. "We know that a healthy diet and regular physical activity is a way to help prevent dementia down the road. So I think as long as you think about what's good for the heart, what's good for the brain, I think that's a good step."

Hake says to pay attention to those minor details. He says if someone was always known to be on time for appointments, but now they are forgetting them, or was able to balance their checkbook and now they can't, that may be a sign of early onset dementia.

"They're just as confused as the loved one," Kretzer said. "You know they have no idea what is going on. So they're trying to educate themselves and that's what we love to do. Making sure they are prepared for what's going to happen."

90 percent of programs offered through the Alzheimer's Association are free to the public.

To learn more about programs available, you can call the Alzheimer's Association's 24/7 hotline at 1-800-272-3900, or you can call the Quincy branch directly at 217-228-1111.

New clues to why poor nutrition in the womb leads to obesity later in life

Posted: at 5:46 pm


Babies receiving poor nutrition in the womb tend to be smaller at birth, which has been linked to the development of obesity and other health problems later in life. Researchers continue to discover other consequences related to undernutrition during pregnancy. A new study examines how poor fetal nutrition affects protein expression in the fat tissue of adult rats, revealing key differences between males and females.

The research helps explain why girls who experienced poor prenatal nutrition in utero are at higher risk than boys for developing obesity as adults. The findings could help researchers develop new drugs to help with weight control in people predisposed to obesity.

Every year, 17 million children are born undernourished due to a mother's lack of nutrition. Obesity is a rapidly growing problem in developing countries, where an estimated 900 million adults are overweight or obese. "In developing countries, insufficient and inadequate food access is a very real problem," said Eliane Beraldi Ribeiro, Ph.D., associate professor at Federal University of So Paulo and research team lead. "A better understanding of the molecular mechanisms at work in the metabolic reprograming that results from prenatal undernutrition could lead to interventions and treatments that help lessen the health effects."

In the study, the researchers gave pregnant rats half the amount of food they would normally eat. When the pups were adults, the researchers used a mass spectrometry technique called MALDI-TOF/TOF to determine how proteins present in their fat tissue differed from tissue of rats that received normal prenatal nutrition. MALDI-TOF/TOF mass spectrometry provides highly sensitive analysis of global protein levels.

The female adult rats that experienced poor prenatal nutrition developed obesity and showed lower levels of 18 proteins and higher levels of four proteins, compared to normal rats. The males with poor prenatal nutrition did not develop obesity but still had lower levels of 12 proteins and higher levels of 17 proteins. When the researchers looked at the metabolic pathways in which these proteins were involved, they found that the protein changes seen in the females were tied to impaired glucose metabolism while cellular energy production was mainly affected in males.

Because the affected proteins differed between male and female rats, the results suggest that poor prenatal nutrition has different long-term effects in males and females.

"We did not select a protein or group of proteins to study in advance -- we studied the whole pool of possible proteins that might be expressed in the fat tissue, which is in the range of hundreds," said Ribeiro, who will present the research at the American Physiological Society (APS) Annual Meeting during Experimental Biology 2015. "Our approach allows the identification of proteins that no one else thought were involved. Now it is necessary to perform more studies to understand how the metabolic differences we observed relate to susceptibilities for developing obesity."

Now that the researchers have pinpointed which proteins are affected by prenatal undernutrition, they can conduct further experiments to explore how each one might contribute to the development of obesity. The researchers hope this next phase of the research can reveal drug targets to help increase glucose metabolism in fat cells and reduce a person's likelihood of becoming obese.
