New Medical Strategies Emerge to Inhibit Dementia

In April, the National Institutes of Health announced new treatments to inhibit the advancement of Alzheimer’s disease. These have made possible blocking a regular protein called CD33, and therefore allowing support cells in the brain to clear away toxic plaques. Post-mortem human brain research shows that CD33 protein is overactive in cases of Alzheimer’s disease, […]
