New Drug to Rejuvenate Brain

Recommended Posts

Caveat: in old mice.

New experimental drug rapidly repairs age-related memory loss and improves mood

"In animal tests the drug has been found to be remarkably effective, with old mice displaying rapid improvements in memory tests within an hour of administration, resulting in performance similar to that of young mice. Daily administration of the drug over two months was also seen to result in an actual structural regrowth of brain cells, returning their brains to a state that resembles a young animal.

"The aged cells regrew to appear the same as young brain cells, showing that our novel molecules can modify the brain in addition to improving symptoms," says Sibille."

Interesting article.   I'm hoping to avoid dementia as it runs in my family.   Hopefully this won't be another promising drug that simply disappears.
