Scientists develop vaccine against Alzheimer's disease
from Science Times
An emerging study tackles a possible vaccine that fights against the tau protein present in people suffering from Alzheimer's disease. It will reportedly target the tangles found in their brains, which cause the memory loss. Alzheimer's disease is a result of coiling in the brain's transport system. These tangles prohibit movements of nutrients toward the cells, thus killing them eventually. With the new vaccine developed, it can allegedly target and kill the proteins found on these tangles. Killing or weakening these knots can potentially result to slower disease progression.
