    Prana Barking Up the Wrong Tree?

    So, no better than placebo i.e. poor results.

    You know if Prana product produced significant results on only a few (say 10 AD folk in the test group) then there may be detailed research work needed to determine benefit here. However, that is not the case and while mice improved in prior research the human study showed apparently no significant improvement for any cited person i.e "poor" results. Again, sorry for your loss and for research failed.

    Some here hide within technical terms, but the bottom line here is that Prana say plaque is shown in AD cases and there own results are poor. Why? Because (per other research) plaque is not shown in all AD cases. Therefore, Prana is IMO wrong. Cause of AD goes unknown to all. Sorry for your loss.

    They just confirm Prana's own poor results and provide second confirmation of barking up the wrong tree. Your loss likely must be large and deep. Again, sorry for your loss.

    The brain tissue looked at for AD dead found that plaque was just a likely to be found as it was not to be found. Therefore, based on this study reported on by 60 Minutes and Prana's recent results there is shown to be barking up the wrong tree. Get over your loss - "move on, there is nothing happening here."

    Sorry for your loss. Must be large? Best to average down now and as it goes lower. That would be the smart move. Then hope for some hopeful PR release or pumper news item so you my dump. Good Luck. Have a nice day.

    Sorry, Prana is into plaque (per below) and therefore likely barking up the wrong tree.

    Metal dyshomeostasis and oxidative stress in Alzheimer’s disease
    Mark A. Greenougha, b, James Camakarisb, Ashley I. Busha, ,

    Abstract
    Alzheimer’s disease is the leading cause of dementia in the elderly and is defined by two pathological hallmarks; the accumulation of aggregated amyloid beta and excessively phosphorylated Tau proteins. The etiology of Alzheimer’s disease progression is still debated, however, increased oxidative stress is an early and sustained event that underlies much of the neurotoxicity and consequent neuronal loss. Amyloid beta is a metal binding protein and copper, zinc and iron promote amyloid beta oligomer formation. Additionally, copper and iron are redox active and can generate reactive oxygen species via Fenton (and Fenton-like chemistry) and the Haber–Weiss reaction. Copper, zinc and iron are naturally abundant in the brain but Alzheimer’s disease brain contains elevated concentrations of these metals in areas of amyloid plaque pathology. Amyloid beta can become pro-oxidant and when complexed to copper or iron it can generate hydrogen peroxide. Accumulating evidence suggests that copper, zinc, and iron homeostasis may become perturbed in Alzheimer’s disease and could underlie an increased oxidative stress burden. In this review we discuss oxidative/nitrosative stress in Alzheimer’s disease with a focus on the role that metals play in this process. Recent studies have started to elucidate molecular links with oxidative/nitrosative stress and Alzheimer’s disease. Finally, we discuss metal binding compounds that are designed to

    You must be sitting on a big loss. So please do accept my "Sorry for your loss" in your bitter words. Just saying there appears to be a bitter end for Prana investors if plaque has no connection to AD. AD's cause in still unknown per this 60 Minute's report. Have a nice day with continued loss in all your holdings.

    This study suggests based on actual look see of brain tissue from AD patients that plaque in brain can not be shown as the cause of AD. If not a plaque connection then Prana is barking up the wrong tree. See 60 Minute's video! Sorry for your loss.

    Not a stupid post if you check out 60 Minutes report - see their vedeo. This study of some 14,000 aged folk indicates Prana product is of no use in treatment of AD. Likely this study confirms Prana's own failed efforts to prove product as effective treatment for AD. Have a nice day....really.

  • captainondeck by captainondeck May 7, 2014 9:50 AM Flag

    Per recent 60 Minutes show they likely are barking up the wrong tree - see "do you want to live to 90." AD cause based on brain tissue look see shows no indication that Prana is on the right track.
