The Journal of Neuroscience recently published a new study with promising news on the battle against Alzheimer’s disease. The study, conducted on rats, found that turning off a certain genetic pathway halted the production of a protein that “signals” the body to pursue the cell disturbances that make up Alzheimer’s disease.¬†Importantly, interrupting those signals allowed the body to repair the affected brain cells. This is the first time that any study has seen a reversal of conditions, and this finding will undoubtedly lead to more studies to explore this potentially exciting development.
