Daily tablets of certain B vitamins can halve the rate of brain shrinkage in elderly people who suffer from mild memory problems, an Oxford University study has shown.

The two-year randomised clinical trial is the largest to study the effect of B vitamins on mild cognitive impairment, and one of the first disease-modifying trials in the Alzheimer’s field to show positive results in people. (more…)

A study published in the journalPLoS One found that taking daily high-dose tablets of certain B vitamins reduced the rate of brain shrinkage in people aged over 70 with mild memory problems.

All our brains shrink, especially with age. But the rate of shrinkage is seen to increase in those with mild cognitive impairment, and shrink faster again in Alzheimer’s, suggesting this is part of the disease process. So the observation that brain shrinkage rate can be reduced could be significant, but more work needs to be done to show that. (more…)

The findings, published in the journal Fertility and Sterility, suggest that some couples wanting to become pregnant may benefit from relaxation techniques. (more…)

It highlights the new strategy outlined in the Eleventh Five Year Plan for the sharp increase in the planned investment levels for infrastructure and the expanding role for the private sector. The strategy remains one of demand-led development implying the critical need for achieving planned targets. As the economy has accelerated growth, the utilisation rates of infrastructure have gone up sharply whereas the building of infrastructure is lagging behind. There is a need to improve implementation performance. The report suggests: (more…)
