US-based researchers have developed a transdermal vaccine for
Alzheimers disease which has been shown to clear brain-damaging
amyloid plaques in preclinical studies, offering hope to millions
of sufferers worldwide.
A Phase I clinical trial, which is investigating the
pharmacological activities of a compound for the treatment of
Alzheimer's disease, has just been completed with results
indicating improved efficacy and pharmacokinetics over...
A new therapeutic technique based on a small molecule working in
tandem with a larger protein has been shown to block accumulation
of the brain-clogging amyloid protein seen in Alzheimer's disease,
raising the possibility of...
Researchers have identified a protein that protects the brain from
the destructive effects of Alzheimer's disease, protecting brain
cells by blocking another toxic protein that contributes to the
A study, which uses immunoglobulins to treat multiple sclerosis,
may also be able to help patients with Alzheimer's. The discovery
seems to point towards an approach, which treats Alzheimer's with
anti-bodies, which are...
