A New Approach To Fighting Alzheimer’s Disease

Last night, I received my alumni e-newsletter from Liverpool University.  There was this article about a new approach to fighting Alzheimer’s Disease. This is a key sentence.

We are using a new approach, harnessing the natural ability of sugars, based on the blood-thinning drug heparin, to block the action of BACE.

BACE is an enzyme, which according to the article causes some of the problems of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Let’s hope that the research succeeds.
