Animal Research Minute – Potential Breakthrough in Alzheimer’s Disease
Did you know researchers have made a recent discovery that could have incredible implications for Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative diseases?
Well, according to Reuters, scientists were able to stop brain cells from dying in mice with brain diseases. By blocking a pathway linked to brain cell death, they prevented brain cells from dying and, ultimately extended the lives of the mice. Understanding how to stop brain cell death from occurring in mice could lead to effective therapies for people living with diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
