Our results have implications for clinical trials, biomarkers, and therapeutic development in Alzheimer’s. In designing clinical trials aimed at an MCI cohort, potentially our study suggests that the dosage of anti-tau antibodies should be modified by ApoE ε4-sex group. Moreover, we hope that insights from our work will shed light on potential treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, including sex-specific tau-targeted and ApoE-targeted drug development.” Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jun 25 2019The strongest genetic risk factor for Alzheimer’s disease is the apolipoprotein E type 4 allele (ApoE ε4). Research presented by Manish Paranjpe at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) used positron emission tomography (PET) to show that women who are ApoE ε4 carriers and already experiencing mild cognitive impairment are more susceptible than men to tau accumulation in the brain.”Sex plays an important role in Alzheimer’s disease risk, with females having a higher lifetime risk of developing the disease and an increased vulnerability to genetic risk factors,” points out Yun Zhou, who led the project at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, Washington University in St. Louis School of Medicine. He explains, “This is the first study to demonstrate that sex modulates the effect of ApoE ε4 on brain tau depositing, measured using 18F-AV-1451-PET imaging, in the entorhinal cortex, amygdala, parahippocampal gyrus, and posterior cingulate of the brains of patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Strikingly, females experience greater ApoE ε4-associated increases in brain tau deposition in these regions compared to their male counterparts.”Related StoriesDon’t Miss the Blood-Brain Barrier Drug Delivery (B3DD) Summit this AugustWearing a hearing aid may mitigate dementia riskNew therapy shows promise in preventing brain damage after traumatic brain injuryThis cross-sectional study involved 131 cognitively normal (CN) elderly controls (66 women) and 97 MCI subjects (39 women) from the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI) database. The mean age of all was 77. Preprocessed 18F-AV-1451 PET images, T1-weighted structural MRI scans and demographic information were included. After downloading pre-processed images from ADNI, a partial volume correction method was applied on all PET images (improving spatial resolution and contrast), and structural MRIs were used for PET spatial normalization. All statistical analyses were performed after controlling for baseline age and education.In addition to finding women with the ApoE ε4 mutation more susceptible than men to tau accumulation, Zhou notes: Paranjpe adds: Source:Society of Nuclear Medicine and Molecular Imaging Our study also confirmed that sex does not modulate the ApoE ε4-associated tau deposition in the brains of cognitively normal elderly individuals, and it extends our understanding of how sex modulates the ApoE ε4 effect on tau deposition in the brains of individuals at the early stage of Alzheimer’s disease.”
In 2010, another man, Richard Polombo, admitted he’d killed Harris. Four years later, the Innocence Clinic at the University of Michigan’s law school heard about Polombo’s admission. After years of legal wrangling, Phillips was granted a new trial in late 2017.He became a free man in March 2018.Prison Walls Couldn’t Contain his Creative SpiritBehind bars, Phillips began painting in 1990 “to stave off loneliness,” his art website says. “He painted to fill the long days. He painted to keep his heart soft and hope alive.”His paintings became custom greeting cards he sold to other inmates. He used the proceeds to buy more art supplies.His watercolor paintings often touched on themes of hope and survival.With a modernist touch, he depicted floral scenes, landscapes, musicians, and delved into the world of the abstract as well. Over nearly 30 years he created a wide body of work that’s now up for sale.Silver said Phillips is now renting an apartment but hopes to be able to buy a small home with the new money coming in and enjoy the simple pleasures of life.One of those hopes, Silver says, is that Phillips wants to get a German Shepherd puppy.“He is pretty well-adjusted. He says that he is not bitter,” Silver said.

The money isn’t taxed, and he won’t lose any of it to attorney’s fees, his lawyer Gabi Silver told CNN. The $1.5 million payment covers about three decades of his prison sentence because he also served time in jail on an armed robbery conviction.Silver says she’s still fighting the armed robbery conviction. If Phillips is exonerated on that charge, his take-home haul could be even greater. “This is great news, and was absolutely the right thing to do,” Wayne County Prosecutor Kym Worthy said in a statement. “While this compensation will not bring back the 45 years that he unjustly served in prison, it is my sincere hope that it will bring a well-deserved and fulfilling quality of life to him.”At 73, He’s Beginning a New Life in a New WorldRichard Phillips, who’s now 73, was just 27 when he was arrested. He was sentenced to life in prison in October 1972 without the possibility of parole.At the time, Richard Nixon was in a reelection race against Sen. George McGovern for the presidency.Michael Jackson’s “Ben” and Elvis Presley’s “Burning Love” were in the top five on the Billboard Hot 100.

The victim’s brother-in-law told investigators he’d met with Phillips at a bar to discuss the murder.But Phillips maintained his innocence. He told his attorney, “I’d rather die in prison, than admit to a murder I did not do.”
