Gut Fungi Not Linked to Parkinson's DiseaseNews
In a new study, a team of investigators at the University of British Columbia examined whether the fungal constituents of the gut microbiome are associated with PD. Their research indicated that gut fungi are not a contributing factor, thereby refuting the need for any potential anti-fungal treatments of the gut in PD patients.READ MORE
Imaging Study Assesses Brain Differences in People Living With HIVNews
Nearly 38 million people around the world are living with HIV, which, with access to treatment, has become a lifelong chronic condition. Now, one of the largest-ever brain imaging studies of HIV-positive people. By examining images from 1,203 HIV-positive people from across five continents, the team was able to assess how the virus may alter the brain.READ MORE
A brain pressure disorder that especially affects women, causing severe headaches and sometimes permanent sight loss, has risen six-fold in 15 years, and is linked to obesity and deprivation, a new study by Swansea University researchers has shown.
Researchers at the National Institutes of Health have discovered a new genetic disorder characterized by developmental delays and malformations of the brain, heart and facial features.READ MORE
Simple vision tests can predict which people with Parkinson's disease will develop cognitive impairment and possible dementia 18 months later, according to a new study by UCL researchers.
Malta's ALS Biobank is providing scientists with an invaluable resource for understanding the causes of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). In the first landmark study, researchers have retrieved and scrutinized the DNA from blood samples to discover flaws in genes linked to ALS.
The abnormal immune system response that causes multiple sclerosis (MS) by attacking and damaging the central nervous system can be triggered by the lack of a specific fatty acid in fat tissue, according to a new Yale study.READ MORE
