(Best Syndication News) - Researchers injected TFP5 molecules into mice with Alzheimer’s disease and were able to restore their memory function. The new findings were published in the January 2013 issue of the FASEB Journal.

Scientists at the National Institutes of Health injected TFP5 molecules into mice that had a disease similar to the Alzheimer’s disease in humans. To measure against a control group, other brain diseased mice were injected with a placebo. The mice that received the TFP5 molecules had their symptoms reversed and they had regained their memory while the placebo group continued to decline as expected. The TFP5 did not demonstrate any toxic side effects in the mice.

(Best Syndication News) - A recent animal study suggests that cosmic radiation could speed up the onset of Alzheimer’s disease in astronauts traveling on deep space missions. The scientists published their findings in the journal PLOS ONE.

Senior study author, M. Kerry O’Banion, M.D., Ph.D., a professor in the University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) Department of Neurobiology and Anatomy, explained the cancer health risk factor due to radiation exposure in space has already been acknowledged. However, their researchers wanted to see if there was a risk for developing cognitive problems from the radiation exposure, which could lead to an accelerated onset of Alzheimer’s disease.

The Earth’s magnetic field provides protection from much of the radiation, but when astronauts travel into space they exposed to a variety of radioactive particles.
