New research looks into the body instead of the brain for Alzheimer’s treatment

New research suggests that the key to combatting Alzheimer’s may be to catch one of its toxic proteins where it originates in our bodies before it reaches and destroys our brains.

The brain is an extraordinarily complex organ on which to operate for surgeons. However, the international team of researchers from the University of British Columbia in Canada, along with colleagues in China’s Third Military Medical University in Chongqing, believes that future therapies for Alzheimer’s, a major precursor to dementia, may instead target other organs such as the liver or kidneys to provide a more effective treatment.
