Potential Alzheimer's Disease Drug Slows Damage and Symptoms in Animal Model

Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania

A study published this week in the Journal of Neuroscience shows that the compound epothilone D (EpoD) is effective in preventing further neurological damage and improving cognitive performance in a mouse model of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The results establish how the drug might be used in early-stage AD patients.

Scientists Pinpoint How Vitamin D May Help Clear Amyloid Plaques Found in Alzheimer's

University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA), Health Sciences

A team of academic researchers has identified the intracellular mechanisms regulated by vitamin D3 that may help the body clear the brain of amyloid beta, the main component of plaques associated with Alzheimer's disease. The early findings show that vitamin D3 may activate key genes and cellular signaling networks to help stimulate the immune system to clear the amyloid-beta protein.
