Cocoa consumption could reduce inflammation and epigenetic aging, ultimately reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and other diseases associated with aging.
A study conducted on Japanese men and women found peanut consumption decreased the risk of cardiovascular disease and ischemic stroke.
A new study links viral infections including mononucleosis and pneumonia experienced during adolescence with an increased risk of developing multiple sclerosis.
Testing for specific inflammatory proteins in cerebrospinal fluid can help doctors to diagnose the early onset of Alzheimer’s disease and track the progression of the disease in patients.
Regular exercise modulates iron storage and trafficking in the brain and skeletal muscles, and physical activity reduces cortical hepcidin. The findings reveal how exercise can be beneficial for those with Alzheimer’s disease.
A new study adds to the growing body of research linking inflammation to depression. Researchers found the molecule histamine directly inhibits the release of serotonin in the brain by attaching to inhibitory receptors on serotonin neurons in mice.
Opioid use disorder affects genes associated with proinflammatory immune molecule encoding and genes associated with remodeling the extracellular matrix, suggesting the connection between neurons may be altered as a result of opioid use. Additionally, …
A new study reports cancer patients who frequently eat peanuts may be at increased risk of their cancer spreading. Researchers found Peanut agglutinin (PNA), a carbohydrate-binding protein that enters blood circulation after a peanut is eaten, interact…
Higher body fat leads to increased atrophy of the brain’s gray matter and a greater risk of cognitive decline, researchers report.
A new theory proposes an imbalance of blood proteins involved in the immune system and in blood clotting networks leads to inflammation that contributes to the development of psychosis.
Mouse and human studies reveal Interleukin-3 may modify immune responses in the brain that cause cell death and lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
Aromatic turmerone, a compound derived from turmeric essential oil, and its derivatives directly affect dopamine neurons to generate neuroprotective properties in tissue culture models of Parkinson’s disease.
A diet rich in foods containing isoflavone, a plant-based compound found in legumes, chickpeas, and peanuts, that resembles estrogen, protects against multiple sclerosis symptoms in mouse models.
A diet rich in fermented foods, such as yogurt and kimchi, can help to improve gut microbiome diversity and reduce symptoms of chronic inflammation, a new study reports.
Synthetically optimizing a peptide commonly found in sunflower seeds could help provide relief for gastrointestinal pain and inflammation, a new study reports.
A new study reveals humans and mice have significant differences in how oxidative stress and inflammation trigger immune response genes in astrocytes. Researchers suggest lab models of neurodegeneration should incorporate specially engineered mouse mod…
A Western-style diet, high in omega-6 polyunsaturated fats, increases symptoms of inflammation, neuropathy, and chronic pain. However, changing to a lower-fat diet can help reverse or relieve symptoms of inflammatory pain disorders.
More frequent hospital and doctor’s office visits in the years leading up to multiple sclerosis diagnosis with early MS type symptoms are usually associated with a prodromal phase of the disease, when they should be regarded as an ongoing progression o…
Researchers found an increased inflammatory signal in patients with the C90rf72 subtype of ALS. The increased inflammatory biomarkers could be found in peripheral serum tests.
Neuroinflammation may be a key player in the pathological brain changes produced as a result of chronic opioid use. Microglia is likely responsible for the majority of the changes.
