Hope they're right
Researchers are reporting that damage from Alzheimers may be reversible, according to this article from MSNBC.
Tests on mice suggest the brain damage caused by Alzheimer’s disease may be at least partly reversible, researchers reported Thursday.
Their genetically altered mice regained the ability to navigate mazes after the genes that caused their dementia were de-activated.
This suggests that the brain damage caused by Alzheimer’s is not permanent, they wrote in their report, published in the journal Science.
That would be nice. My dad currently suffers from Alzheimers and it killed his mother, my grandmother. You might say I have a vested interest in this kind of research.
