Study proposes cerebrovascular connection to Alzheimer's

Postby happy_canuck » Sun Nov 28, 2010 12:25 pm

New study proposes cerebrovascular origin to Alzheimer's disease -- hypofusion, astrocytes, and inflammation all implicated. Here are a couple excerpts:

"Possibly the most important changes arguing for a vascular hypothesis in AD are the cerebral bloodflow (CBF) measurements in mild cognitive impairment (MCI)..."

and

"Putting several evidence together, it seems possible that the aging of the cerebrovascular system may trigger the development of dementia: age is the most important risk factor and different vascular risk factors correlate with the development of dementia and with cognitive deficits."

Very technical article, but I'll forward to anyone who indicates they want it here! (May take me a day or two -- I have truckloads of marking to do today!)
