New method raises hopes for antiretroviral drugs against Alzheimer’s
Professor Sara Snogerup Linse at Lund University is responsible for developing the new method together with her colleagues at the universities in Cambridge and Groningen. The researchers also show that the active medical substance against cancer – bexarotene – can slow the formation of plaque and reduce nerve cell death.
“What is new about this method is that we first acquired knowledge about the intermediate steps involved in the process, and then looked for substances to eliminate certain steps”, says Sara Snogerup Linse.
The new findings are presented in an article in the journal Science Advances.
