Hypertension treatment may slow down Alzheimer's progression
Researchers found that nilvadipine, a drug that doctors regularly use to treat hypertension, may help people with Alzheimer's disease by increasing blood flow to the brain.
Blood test to spot Alzheimer's before symptoms occur
Researchers developed a new test that could help doctors detect Alzheimer's disease eight years before the first symptoms occur.
Study finds key details about ‘punch drunk syndrome’ and Alzheimer’s
The syndrome, also known as chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), is linked to repeated blows to the head and causes a type of dementia similar to Alzheimer’s.
Alzheimer's screenings often left out of seniors' wellness exams in US
Primary care doctors in US are really good at checking seniors' cholesterol levels and blood pressure but often fail to use tests that could detect dementia.
Rate of Americans living with Alzheimer's expected to double by 2060
As the aging population of the United States grows, a new study from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said that from 2014 to 2060, there will be a 178-percent increase in the number of Americans who have Alzheimer's disease and related dementias.
Women's healthy life expectancy stalled thanks to Alzheimer's disease
The number of years a woman can expect to live in decent health has stalled for the first time due to the rising prevalence of dementia, according to a government report.
Herpes linked to Alzheimer's: Antivirals may help
A new commentary by scientists at the Universities of Manchester and Edinburgh on a study by Taiwanese epidemiologists supports the viability of a potential way to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease.

Sleepless nights show ties to Alzheimer's risk
Even one night of lost sleep may cause the brain to fill with protein chunks that have long been linked to the development of Alzheimer's disease, a new study warned.
