New MRI Technique Can Detect Early Dysfunction of Blood-Brain Barrier Associated With Small Vessel Disease

University of Kentucky
Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Collaborative research between the University of Kentucky and the University of Southern California (USC) suggests that a noninvasive neuroimaging technique may index early-stage blood-brain barrier (BBB) dysfunction associated with small vessel disease (SVD). 

Gene Therapy in Alzheimer’s Disease Mouse Model Preserves Learning and Memory

University of California San Diego School of Medicine
Tuesday, May 4, 2021

Researchers at University of California San Diego School of Medicine, with colleagues elsewhere, have used gene therapy to prevent learning and memory loss in a mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), a key step toward eventually testing the approach in humans with the neurodegenerative disease.
