Episode 7 - Dr. Dale Bredesen
Take a look at the trailblazing research illuminating the true causes and effective treatments for Alzheimer’s disease. This jam-packed presentation on Inhalational Alzheimer’s delves into the features suggestive of mycotoxin-associated cognitive decline, testing methods, and protocols to prevent and reverse Alzheimer’s and related cognitive impairments. Learn why current pharmaceutical-focused approaches are failing and how personalized protocols are key to reversal of this growing global health threat.
Dr. Bredesen graduated from Caltech and received his MD from Duke. He served as Resident and Chief Resident in Neurology at UCSF, then was a postdoctoral fellow with Nobel laureate Prof. Stanley Prusiner. He was the Founding President of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging.
The Bredesen Laboratory studied basic mechanisms underlying the neurodegenerative process and the translation into effective therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease, leading to the publication of over 220 research papers. He established the Alzheimer’s Drug Development Network with Dr. Varghese John, leading to the identification of new classes of therapeutics for Alzheimer’s disease. His work led to the discovery of subtypes of Alzheimer’s disease, followed by the first description of the reversal of symptoms in patients with MCI and Alzheimer’s disease, with a precision medicine protocol and a recent successful proof-of-concept trial. Dr. Bredesen is the author of two New York Times best sellers. He is currently a professor at UCLA.
