One study showed that autism can be reversed. Now a researcher has found a way to reverse the devastating condition known as Alzheimer's.
An extraordinary new scientific study, there was marked improvement in Alzheimer?s disease within minutes of administration of a therapeutic molecule. Molecules called cytokines (TNFs) are a critical component of the brain's immune system, and researchers think that elevated levels of them in Alzheimer's disease interfere with this regulation, so they gave patients an injection of an anti-TNF ingredient and saw almost instant improvement.
While the article that was written about this experiment in a leading medical journal only talk about one patient, many other patients with mild to severe Alzheimer's received the same treatment and all have shown sustained and markedimprovement.
Researcher Sue Griffin says, "It is unprecedented that we can see cognitive and behavioral improvement in a patient with established dementia within minutes of therapeutic intervention?This gives all of us in Alzheimer's research a tremendous new clue about new avenues of research, which is so exciting and so needed in the field of Alzheimer's. Even though this report predominantly discusses a single patient, it is of significant scientific interest because of the potential insight it may give into the processes involved in the brain dysfunction of Alzheimer's."
