Alzheimer Drug Aduhelm

The drug Aduhelm, recently approved to treat Alzheimer’s disease is controversial for good reason.  I’ve linked to several comprehensive articles below.  The controversy comes down to a a few points. Is is clinically effective?  It is hard to tell.  At one of the phases of the trial, the data didn’t look good. Then when the…

Aspirin Reduces by Nearly Half the Need For Mechanical Ventilation for COVID-19 Patients

This makes total sense since blood clotting is a huge problem in severe Covid 19 patients.  There is a risk of internal bleeding, but the risk/benefit ratio is quite low.   Patients hospitalized with COVID-19 and taking aspirin were nearly half as likely to require mechanical ventilation as those with COVID-19 not taking the drug,…

Graphene sheet “camera” captures granular electrical activity of a beating heart.

Amazingly, they may be able to look at brain activity in this highly specific way also.  Without the tremendous computing power of our computers, this would be impossible.     Graphene ‘camera’ captures real-time electrical activity of beating heart

Immune and genetic aspects of asthma, allergy and parasitic worm infections: evolutionary links

This paper is over 10 years old, but it still has a lot to say.  I have yet to buy the pdf of the full paper. But it is a concise description of the concept of “old friends.”  When a person has  immunity to “old friends” such as Ascaris and Schistomona evolutionarily developed over millenia…

Acupuncture promotes mTOR-independent autophagic clearance of aggregation-prone proteins in mouse brain

In the chapter of my book project “Deep Resilience” on Longevity-Chapter-for-blog-8.4.2020, the concept of autophagy and mTOR are laid out.  Autophagy (the clearing of cells and their debris) is also important in Neurodegenerative Disease, such as Parkinson’s,  Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s .  This study is not new, having been completed in 2015, and perhaps there are…

This is an interesting approach to getting published.  Had I known, I could have published many similar papers.  Good to know!  In all seriousness, maybe it IS a better  approach getting your message out.  My (published) paper is here.
