People with a family history of Alzheimer’s disease perform worse on learning tasks than those without a genetic link to the disease. The learning impairments appear to be exacerbated by the APOE E4 gene and diabetes.

Post mortem examinations of brain tissue from Alzheimer’s patients revealed synapses contained clumps of clusterin, in addition to amyloid beta. The clumps were more abundant in those with genetic risk factors from Alzheimer’s disease.

A new DNA vaccine tested in mice significantly reduces tau and amyloid beta, two proteins implicated in Alzheimer’s disease. The findings, researchers say, may pave the way for clinical trials in humans with the neurodegenerative disease.
