Housecall For Health: Possible Neurological Diseases Breakthrough
U.K. scientists have been able to stop brain cells from dying in mice, which could mean big things for humans who suffer from diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
FOX’s Colleen Cappon has more in today’s edition of “Housecall for Health:
In a potential Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s treatment breakthrough, British scientists were able to halt brain cell death in mice by using a drug-like compound that was injected into the animal’s stomach through a mouth tube. Human trials haven’t started yet, but scientists say the results could mean an oral medication that protects the brain from neurological diseases. The study was in the Journal Science Translational Medicine.
