Alzheimer’s hits more than just the memory; patients experience immune system dysfunction as well

Posted on Jun 4, 2019 in Chronic Disease

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the January 7, 2019 Advanced Medicine Show (click link above to listen to the show) Researchers have discovered that there is a link between inflammation biomarkers in both plasma and cerebrospinal fluid and markers of Alzheimer’s disease-associated pathology. This means that the disease does not only affect memory, but the immune system of patients as well. The study was conducted by a group of researchers from the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus, together with the University of Wisconsin Alzheimer’s...

Link found between chronic inflammation and risk for Alzheimer’s disease

Posted on Feb 27, 2019 in Chronic Disease

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the October 22, 2018 Advanced Medicine Show (click link above to listen to the show) While it is widely shown that possessing the ApoE4 gene is the major genetic risk factor of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), not all ApoE4 carriers develop AD. For the first time, researchers at Boston University School of Medicine (BUSM) have shown that ApoE4 linked with chronic inflammation dramatically increases the risk for AD. This can be detected by sequential measurements of C-reactive protein, a common clinical test which can...

Inflammation drives progression of Alzheimer’s

Posted on May 23, 2018 in Chronic Disease, Medical Rewind

Hear what Dr. Buttar and Robert Scott Bell have to say about this article on the December 26, 2017  Advanced Medicine Show According to a study published in the journal Nature by scientists of the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the University of Bonn, inflammatory mechanisms caused by the brain’s immune system drive the progression of Alzheimer’s disease. These findings, which rely on a series of laboratory experiments, provide new insights into pathogenetic mechanisms that are believed to hold potential for tackling Alzheimer’s before symptoms...
