Road Block as a New Strategy for the Treatment of Alzheimer’s

Blocking a transport pathway through the brain cells offers new prospects to prevent the development of Alzheimer’s. Wim Annaert and colleagues of VIB and K.U. Leuven discovered that two main agents involved in the inception of Alzheimer’s disease, the amyloid beta precursor protein (APP) and the beta secretase enzyme (BACE1), follow a different path… Road Block as a New Strategy for the Treatment of Alzheimer’s   



Laboratory Research Shows Promising Approach to Preventing Alzheimer’s

As scientists struggle to find an effective way to prevent Alzheimer’s disease, researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison may have found a new approach to interrupting the process that leads to the devastating disease.

Building on their knowledge of two enzymes that control an “uber” enzyme critical to the development of the disease, the… Laboratory Research Shows Promising Approach to Preventing Alzheimer’s   



New mouse model could revolutionize research in Alzheimer’s disease

Alzheimer’s disease, the primary cause of dementia in the elderly, imposes a tremendous social and economic burden on modern society. In Japan, the burden of the disease in 2050 is estimated to be a half a trillion US dollars, a figure equivalent to the government’s annual revenues.

Unfortunately, it has proven very difficult to… New mouse model could revolutionize research in Alzheimer’s disease
