Discovery about Huntington’s disease may apply to other neurodegenerative disorders, like Alzheimer’s and frontotemporal dementia.
A novel antibody has been shown to stimulate microglia to degrade amyloid plaques in a murine model of Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers have shown that by effectively resetting the microglia, recovery of mice after a traumatic brain injury (TBI) was improved.
Researchers have shown that, when treated with L-serine, a non-human primate model of ALS had fewer pathologies associated with the disease.
Researchers have found that supplementing drinking water with short chain fatty acids helped mice to recover from stroke by increasing microglia activity.
Microglia brain immune cells are vital in conjunction with the APOE4 gene during the development of Alzheimer’s in mouse models, researchers have found.
Researchers have found that the presence of microglia brain cells allowed plaques to form in the brains of rodents, leading to Alzheimer’s disease.
