Hope springs eternal

by webmaster on April 16, 2009

Possibly one of the most interesting diseases that we still cannot find a cure for is Alzheimer’s, and yet again a new hope has sprung up. In next month’s edition of the Journal of Neurotoxicity Research, an article about the potential cause of the disease Amyloid-beta-induced ion flux in artificial lipid bilayers and neuronal cells has been published.

This article confirms evidence of the role of amyloid-beta peptides in causing the pores in cell membranes that allow ions to rush in and cause cell suicide.One hopes that this may bring us closer to at least being able to stop this disease if caught early.
