St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital scientists have identified an enzyme that can halt or possibly even reverse the build-up of toxic protein fragments known as plaques in the brains of mice with Alzheimer’s disease. The research appeared in a recent edition of the scientific journal Nature Communications.

Plaques decreased substantially in mice treated with… Gene therapy bolsters enzyme activity to combat Alzheimer’s disease in mice
