Hope Of Alzheimer’s Therapy
Researchers have found a gene that seems to be important in late-onset Alzheimer’s. An article in The Independent states that the discovery was described as “exciting” by the Alzheimer’s Society. The hope is that the discovery about the genetic causes could now lead to a new treatment.
Richard Mayeux who led the research said “The importance of the finding is that it opens new pathways to explore the cause as well as potential targets for treatment.”
