Gum health could be a risk factor for dementia, study suggests

Gum disease can affect far more than our mouths -- it's associated with a wide range of health conditions. Now, a new study finds a link between poor oral health and the onset of dementia.

Presently available methods of determining whether or not amyloid-β aggregates exist in the brain are expensive and invasive. Amyloid-β forms solid deposits in and around cells in the brain for decades prior to the first obvious signs of neurodegeneration, and people with raised levels of these protein aggregates are more likely to progress to dementia. Early, accurate, low-cost measurements of amyloid-β prior to symptoms could lead to the identification of lifestyle choices that minimize risk, as well as to the development of preventative therapies. Absent assays that can achieve this goal, there is little ...

AbstractGrowing evidence suggests overlap between Alzheimer ’s disease (AD) and Parkinson’s disease (PD) pathophysiology in a subset of patients. Indeed, 50–80% of autopsy cases with a primary clinicopathological diagnosis of Lewy body disease (LBD)—most commonly manifesting during life as PD—have concomitant amyloid-beta and tau pathology, the def ining pathologies of AD. Here we evaluated common genetic variants in genome-wide association with AD as predictors of concomitant AD pathology in the brains of people with a primary clinicopathological diagnosis of PD or Dementia with Lewy Bodies (...

This study focused on virtual screening of ~ 33,000 natural compounds to find potential BACE1 inhibitors. Multiple ligands pharmacophore model was generated using PHASE to screen retrieved compounds against a four-site (ADDR) hypothesis. Molecular docking was performed to predict the binding status of the natural compounds. Based on binding affinity, the top eight compounds were chosen for further analysis. The docked complexes were analyzed for binding free energy using PRIME MM/GBA calculation. The compounds were filtered for drug-likeness using ADME/TOX (absorption, distribution, metabolism, excretion and toxicit...
