A protein, previously found to be an effective blood-based biomarker of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, has for the first time been detected in the eye. The discovery lays the foundation for promising new diagnostic eye tests hoping to catch neurodegenerative diseases years before symptoms appear.
Researchers at the Max Planck Institute have demonstrated an intriguing new way to fight cancer by introducing molecular fibers into cells. While harmless to healthy cells, once these fibers encounter the specific environment of cancer cells they assemble into webs, activating the tumor’s self-destruct sequence.
Currently, the best treatments for type 2 diabetes involve managing blood sugar levels, but recent research suggests that the brain may be a new drug target for longer-term control. Now, a pair of studies on rats and mice has investigated how a certain peptide works to induce remission for animals with diabetes, which could lead to new breakthroughs in human treatments.
An impressive new study from researchers at The Buck Institute for Research on Aging has found mice given supplements of an endogenous metabolite display significant healthspan improvements. The research follows on from other similar animal studies with the same compound, and a clinical trial in middle-aged humans is set to get underway.

After reading a recent article by Daniel Horowitz (and others) I can think of nothing more scandalous, nothing more damaging to American society, war not withstanding – no greater waste of resources and riches, no greater loss of life and liberty – than the 2020 coronavirus scam.
The lies we’ve been fed for months of the seriousness of Covid-19, and the utter incompetence of supposed virus “experts” is both maddening and saddening beyond belief.
And what’s most infuriating is that virtually none of what I’m about to share is revelatory.
The Covid-19 pandemic is a scandal without equal, and after watching, I think you’ll agree that this is the first epidemic that has become about control instead of public safety.
from the Right Scoop:
Scientists in Australia have made an exciting breakthrough in Alzheimer’s research, demonstrating what they describe as the first gene-therapy-based approach for treating advanced forms of the disease. Through experiments in mice, the team was able to show how activating a key enzyme in the brain can prevent the kind of memory loss associated with advanced forms of Alzheimer’s, and even reverse it.
Scientists investigating the driving factors behind certain neurological diseases have uncovered a new class of proteins that could help us intervene in some of the destructive processes that take place in the brain. The findings throw up new possibilities when it comes to treating Alzheimer’s and schizophrenia, with the team hopeful they can also shed light on why some are more susceptible to these types of diseases than others.
