Could antibodies or hormones slow brain damage from Alzheimer's?


Scientists have discovered that certain antibodies may help slow the progression of Alzheimer's disease. Dr. Patricia Salinas of University College London, U.K., and her team focused on a protein called Dkk1, present in raised levels in the brains of people with Alzheimer's disease. Using brain samples from mice, the team looked at the progressive disintegration of synapses in the hippocampus when exposed to a protein called amyloid-beta, thought to be central to the development of Alzheimer's disease. more
