Studies Question Potential Alzheimer’s Treatment
Last year scientists reported that a skin cancer drug appeared to reverse the effects of an Alzheimer’s-like disease in mice. But four studies out this week in Science question the original results. Ronald Petersen, director of the Mayo Clinic’s Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center, talks about the new findings, and the hunt for Alzheimer’s drugs.
Ronald Petersen is chair of the Advisory Council for the National Alzheimer’s Project Act and director of the Mayo Alzheimer’s Disease Research Center at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
