Enzyme treatment of gene may reverse effects of Alzheimer's

(American Friends of Tel Aviv University) A Tel Aviv University study suggests a new target for Alzheimer's research: the APOE gene, which has two forms: a healthy form called APOE3 and a disease-related pathological form called APOE4. They have developed a novel mechanism and approach with which to convert the 'bad' APOE4 to the 'good' APOE3.
