Antibody Helps Detect Protein Implicated in Alzheimer’s, Other Diseases

Tangles of the protein tau dot the brains of people with diseases like Alzheimer’s. Now, researchers have found a way to measure tau in the blood that accurately reflects tau in the brain. The study, in mice and a small group of people, could be the first step towards a non-invasive test for tau.

Cannabis-Based Medicine May Cut Seizures in Half for Those with Tough-to-Treat Epilepsy

Taking cannabidiol may cut seizures in half for some children and adults with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS), a severe form of epilepsy, according to new information released today from a large scale controlled clinical study that will be presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 69th Annual Meeting in Boston, April 22 to 28, 2017. Cannabidiol is a molecule from the cannabis plant that does not have the psychoactive properties that create a “high.”
