Identified a new pharmacological target against Alzheimer’s disease

A IBUB study published in the journal Neurotherapeutics has validated a new pharmacological target for Alzheimer’s disease. The results show the inhibition of the enzyme soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) in murine models with the disease reduces the neuroinflammatory process, improving the endogen response of the organism and reducing the neuronal damage and death that cause this type

A genomic analysis in samples of Neanderthals and modern humans shows a decrease in ADHD-associated genetic variants

The frequency of genetic variants associated with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has decreased progressively in the evolutionary human lineage from the Palaeolithic to nowadays, according to a study published in the journal Scientific Reports. The new genomic analysis compares several ADHD-associated genetic variants described in current European populations to assess its evolution in samples of the human species (Homo

Cells in the intestine nervous system and oligodendrocytes are affected in Parkinson’s disease

A new study published in the journal Nature Genetics highlights the involvement of the intestine nervous system cells in Parkinson’s disease and it suggests the disease could be originated in this organ. Moreover, conclusions state that oligodendrocytes -brain’s supporting neurons- are affect early. The study puts emphasis on knowing the affected cell types in disorders such as
