SPOKANE, Wash. – Researchers have reported a 240 percent increase in the brain of the antioxidant glutathione after it is administered via nasal spray. Glutathione deficiency has been documented in a variety of central nervous system disorders, including Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, autism, Alzheimer’s disease, schizophrenia and bipolar disease.
PULLMAN – Volunteers are needed for a new study of memory loss that is getting under way at WSU.
The researchers hope to enroll 100 volunteers who are not experiencing memory problems, 50 who are experiencing mild memory problems, and 50 who have been diagnosed with a progressive memory disorder such as Alzheimer’s disease. Participants must be age 50 or older, fluent in English and have no history of significant brain injury, stroke or disease other than the possible dementia that would be a subject of the study. Individuals who have participated in other studies with the researchers are welcome to join this study.
