Gene Injected Into the Brain Could Stop Alzheimer's disease

Researchers have prevented the development of Alzheimer's disease in mice by using a virus to deliver a specific gene into the brain. By Alzheimer's Reading RoomNew research indicates that Alzheimer's could be stopped by an injection into the memory centers of the brain.Mice treated with this new gene therapy did not develop Alzheimer's disease, and the gene therapy helped to prevent the formation of amyloid-beta.
