CMS121 and J147, two drug candidates that improve memory and slow neurodegeneration associated with Alzheimer's disease, also slow aging in healthy, older mice. The compounds block damage to neurons caused by general aging and restore levels of specific molecules to those seen in younger animals.
A new study finds THC reduces amyloid beta proteins in human neurons.
Researchers discover an experimental Alzheimer's disease drug appears to slow key features of the aging process, including memory loss and improved a number of physiological features.
A drug developed by scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies, known as J147, reverses memory deficits and slows Alzheimer's disease in aged mice following short-term treatment.
