DNA Vaccine May Protect Against Accumulation of Toxic Amyloid in Alzheimer’s
A new DNA vaccine protects against accumulation of toxic proteins in Alzheimer's disease, according to new research. One study, “Evaluation of a DNA Aβ42 Vaccine in Aged NZW Rabbits: Antibody Kinetics and Immune Profile after Intradermal Immunization with Full-Length DNA Aβ42 Trimer,” appeared in the Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease A second study, “Evaluation of a DNA Aβ42 vaccine in adult rhesus monkeys (Macaca mulatta): antibody kinetics and immune profile after intradermal immunization with full-length DNA Aβ42 trimer,” was published in the journal Alzheimer’s Research & Therapy. Alzheimer's disease is characterized by progressive deterioration of the brain with significant loss of neurons. One of the hallmarks of the disease is the buildup of amyloid protein, which is key in the pathological alterations in the brain. Despite the many investigative treatments being tested, including antibodies produced in laboratories, no effective and safe cure for Alzheimer's exists yet. Earlier research showed that antibodies significantly reduce amyloid buildup in the brain. However, the induction of brain swelling in some patients indicated that a safer route of administration was needed to efficiently treat the disease. The research team was led by Roger Rosenberg, MD, a professor of physiology, neurology and neurotherapeutics, and director of the Alzheimer's Disease Center at UT Southwestern Medical Center. The scientists injected a new vaccine containing DNA coding for amyloid into the skin rather than the m

    Between this and dr david holtzman, Alzheimer’s and dementia would not stand a chance. but the American people have to get behind these cures, and fight Big Pharma , their health institutions and their sponsored Corporate Socialists Govt and their doctors, in order for the American People to find a cure and get results and have any chance for a vaccine to prevent these plaque disease brain eating cell killing disease.

    I would like information on what the steps are to participate in this vaccine. Alzheimer’s runs wild in my family on both sides. please email me.
