The workable human brain wasn’t created to last 70 to 90 years. That’s why our brains have different neurologic diseases when we age, like Parkinson's or Alzheimer's. Senior associate Karthik Bodhinathan and postdoctoral associate Mohammed Waseem Akhtar are researching new medical care for Alzheimer’s disease at La Jolla’s Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Discovery Institute.

“There aren’t very good drugs out there,” Bodhinathan explains, “and even the ones that are out, they hit multiple targets, which mean they cure what you need but also create side effects, like depression and suicidal behavior. My job is to see if we can refine them.”

Akhtar is finding out more about the link between Alzheimer's and diabetes.

“Generally,” he says, “the people with diabetes have roughly two times higher the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease.”

There are several reasons for that, he says, but the main reason centers on the sugar level in diabetic patient. High levels affect neuronal function and causes dysfunction in the powerhouses of the brain.

“In the diabetic brain, you see that they decline in learning and memory, which is what you see in an Alzheimer’s brain,” Akhtar notes.

Bodhinathan is researching the chemicals that affect the brain in prior unknown ways. It’s a big challenge, he says, because most times the drugs don’t do what researchers predict. Researchers change the chemistry, fueling a lengthy retesting process.

“I’m trying to see if we can use the brain’s different mechanism to clear these toxic proteins in the brain,” Bodhinathan says. “They attract more proteins, and they become this big gob in the brain – and we believe that once we attack those clusters, we will be able to cure the disease.”

In a related development, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved Acadia Pharmaceutical’s Nuplazid drug for the treatment of hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson’s disease psychosis. In 2014 the FDA designated Nuplazid as a “breakthrough therapy” for this condition.

Acadia, based in San Diego, plans in June to make Nuplazid commercially available to patients suffering from hallucinations and delusions associated with Parkinson’s disease psychosis in the United States.

According to the National Parkinson Foundation, about 1 million people in the United States and from 4 to 6 million people worldwide suffer from Parkinson’s disease. An estimated 40 percent of these patients have Parkinson’s disease psychosis, characterized by hallucinations and delusions. This is associated with significant caregiver burden and is a major reason for nursing home placement among Parkinson’s patients.

I'm here to testify about what DR. MAGGI did for me. I have been suffering from (GENITAL HERPES VIRUS) disease for the past 3 years and had constant pain and inching, especially in my private part. During the first year, I had faith in God that i would be cured someday.This disease started circulating all over my body and I have been taking treatment from my doctor, few weeks ago I came across a testimony of Rose Smith on the internet testifying about a Man called DR. MAGGI on how he cured her from 7 years HSV 2. And she also gave the email address of this man, advise anybody to contact him for help on any kind of diseases that he would be of help, so I emailed him telling him about my (HSV 2) he told me not to worry that I was going to be cured!! Well, I never doubted him I have faith he can cure me too,, DR. MAGGI prepared and sent me Healing Oil, Soap, roots and herbs which I took. In the first one week, I started experiencing changes all over me, after four weeks of using his Roots/ Herbs, Oil and Soap, I was totally cured. no more inching , pain on me anymore as DR. MAGGI assured me. After some time I went to my doctor to do another test behold the result came out negative. So friends my advise is if you have such disease or know anyone who suffers from it or any other disease like HPV, HBV, HIV, ALS, HBP, CANCER etc. you can contact DR. MAGGI for help via email} Maggiherbalcenter@gmail.com call 2347057375409 or whatsaap him through his mobile} 2348148487280. You can also email me on howardvivian222@gmail.com. I may not reply your mail immediately but at my leisure i will do so, Thanks once again DR. MAGGI for making me a happy woman again.
