An LSU Ag Center researcher believes he’s made a breakthrough when it comes to combating chronic wasting disease, mad cow disease and C-J-D, which is found in one-eighth of Alzheimer’s patients. Dr. Frank Bastain has developed a way to grow a bacteria that causes these diseases which makes it possible to develop tests and vaccines for them.

Researchers have discovered there may be a link between poor sleep and the increased risk for Alzheimer's Disease. Director of Imaging from LSU's Pennington Biomedical Research Center Owen Carmichael says those with the disease generally have disturbed sleep. He says the question of whether sleep issues cause Alzheimer's has long been something scientists have wondered.
