Rethinking Neurodegenerative Disease Treatment: Target Multiple Pathological Proteins, Not Just One

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

Nearly all major neurodegenerative diseases are defined by the presence of one of four proteins that have gone rogue. As such, investigational drugs aimed at preventing or slowing the disease often hone in on just one of these proteins. However, targeting multiple proteins at once may be the real key, according to a recent Penn Medicine study.

‘Skinny Fat’ in Older Adults May Predict Dementia, Alzheimer’s Risk

Florida Atlantic University

A first-of-its-kind study has found that “skinny fat” – the combination of low muscle mass and strength in the context of high fat mass – may be an important predictor of cognitive performance in older adults. Results show that sarcopenic obesity or “skinny fat” was associated with the lowest performance on global cognition.

Obesity + Aging Linked to Alzheimer’s Markers in the Brain

American Physiological Society (APS)

A new study suggests that when a high-fat, high-sugar diet that leads to obesity is paired with normal aging, it may contribute to the development of Alzheimer’s disease. In addition, researchers discovered that certain areas of the brain respond differently to risk factors associated with Alzheimer’s. The study is published in Physiological Reports.
