An end to Alzheimer’s? Scientists show how we could block the disease in its earliest stages.
Researchers may have discovered the ‘ground zero’ of Alzheimer’s disease, paving the way to treatment that could halt condition in its tracks.
A team of scientists at the University of North Carolina’s Medical School conducted a series of experiments to look at different factors driving the disease in order to try and pinpoint a way to stop it in its tracks.
Alzheimer’s disease causes abnormal deposits of amyloid beta protein and tau protein in the brain, as well as swarms of activated immune cells.
