New Discovery in Gene Mutation Study
EricPete posted:
I just read an article regarding research into gene mutations. Looks like the researchers have discovered a gene mutation that protects the brain from one of the key factors that causes Alzheimer's. The gene mutation limits the amount of beta amyloid that is produced in the brain. The reserachers believe this will play a mojor role in the creation of new treatments for the disease. Always good to hear news of possible advancements towards curing this disease.

The article contains a lot more specific information and can be found in a link on our blog . Keep up hope for a cure!
Judith L London, PhD responded:
Hi EricPete,

Thanks for sharing the news. I also read about it, and the mutation also appears to protect those with one or both of the APOEe4 genes, the gene that is associated with an increased probablitly of Alzheimer's, by lowering the probability of getting Alzheimer's into the normal population range.
