Gene therapy ‘memory boost hope’
"This research adds a piece to the Alzheimer's puzzle and provides new leads for researchers”
- Rebecca Wood Alzheimer's Research Trust
A gene therapy technique which aims to ease memory problems linked to Alzheimer's Disease has been successfully tested in mice.
US scientists used it to increase levels of a chemical which helps brain cells signal to each other.
This signalling is hindered in Alzheimer's Disease, the journal Nature reported.
