“Mini-Proteins” Block Amyloid Aggregation in Animal Models

Many cell- and neurodegenerative diseases are linked to the formation of toxic protein aggregates. Researchers have developed “mini-proteins” that are able to bind the proteins that form amyloids and prevent their aggregation into cytotoxic amyloids.

Endurance Sports May Help Restore Insulin Sensitivity

If the brain no longer responds correctly to the hormone insulin (insulin resistance), this impacts metabolism and the regulation of eating behavior. A recent study shows that as little as eight weeks of exercise can help restore the brain's insulin sensitivity in severely overweight adults.
