Hormone Klotho Boosts Cognition in Mouse Models of Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s, Study Shows
The naturally occurring hormone klotho improved cognition in mouse models of Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease, according to a University of California medical center study. Researchers said the findings could lead to new therapies for the neurological disorders. The study that the team published in Cell Reports was titled Peripheral Elevation of a Klotho Fragment Enhances Brain Function and Resilience in Young, Aging, and α-Synuclein Transgenic Mice.” Klotho, produced in the brain and kidneys, helps regulate several processes that affect life span. These include the production of other hormones. Scientists kno
