#Estrogen patch in newly postmenopausal women may reduce #Alzheimer’s risk

Originally posted 2016-07-13 17:26:41.

Can estrogen preserve brain function and decrease the risk of Alzheimer’s disease when given early in menopause? Newly postmenopausal women who received estrogen via a skin patch had reduced beta-amyloid deposits, the sticky plaques found in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s disease, a Mayo Clinic study published this month in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease found. Ultimately, these deposits harm neurons, leading to cognitive problems.

Absence of one specific species of gut bacteria causes #autism-related social deficits in mice

Originally posted 2016-07-13 17:24:21.

The absence of one specific species of gut bacteria causes social deficits in mice, researchers at Baylor College of Medicine report June 16 in Cell. By adding this bacterial species back to the guts of affected mice, the researchers were able to reverse some of the mice’s behavioral deficits, which are reminiscent of symptoms of autism spectrum disorders (ASDs) in humans. The investigators are now looking to explore the effects of probiotics on neurodevelopmental disorders in future work.

#Nusinersén muestra eficacia en la #atrofiamuscularespinal infantil. #AME

Originally posted 2017-01-23 09:14:12.

 

Los resultados de un estudio de escalación de dosis de fase II indican que el oligonucleótido antisentido nusinersén promueve el desarrollo motor en infantes con atrofia muscular espinal, un desorden neurológico causado por la ausencia de una proteína promotora de la supervivencia neuronal, denominada SMN1. El mecanismo de acción de nusinersén consiste en optimizar el uso de la proteína alternativa SMN2, que de otro modo es incapaz de suplir la función de SMN1.
