Scientists discover new brain changes in early Alzheimer's disease

Scientists discover new brain changes in early Alzheimer's disease Researchers at the University of Eastern Finland have discovered new changes occurring in the human brain in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease. The researchers used a multiomic approach to determine RNA, protein, and phosphorylation levels and carried out further neurobioinformatic analyses on them.  The findings, drawing on data from a Finnish biobank of brain tissue samples, were published in Neurobiology of Disease. Alzheimer's disease is the most common neurodegenerative disease, which is strongly characterised by the accumulation of beta-amyloid peptide and hyperphosphorylated tau protein in the brain tissue.  In order...

High negative pressure limits dispersion of airborne contaminants in hospitals and renovation sites

High negative pressure limits dispersion of airborne contaminants in hospitals and renovation sites Maintaining a high negative pressure in airborne infection isolation rooms of hospitals (over -10 Pa) and in renovation sites (over -5 Pa) effectively limits the dispersion of airborne contaminants and dust, a new study from the University of Eastern Finland shows. Inhaled airborne particles at work can cause adverse health effects, and this is why it is important to prevent exposure to them. Moreover, the control of contaminants released from internal sources within an enclosed workspace also plays an important role in protecting other persons working in...

A very high consumption of non-fermented dairy products, on the other hand, was associated with an increased risk of incident coronary heart disease. The findings were published in the British Journal of Nutrition. Earlier studies have shown that fermented dairy products have more positive effects on blood lipid profiles and on the risk of heart...
