Scientists Discover How a Therapy Both Treats Alzheimer’s and Reverses Aging
Salk Institute researchers have discovered how a therapy they are developing alleviates the symptoms of Alzheimer's disease and reverses aging in mice. The compound, J147, does this by binding to a protein in mitochondria, the cells' energy powerhouse, the La Jolla, California-based team reported. A key implication of the findings is that one drug may be able to address both Alzheimer's and aging. "This really glues together everything we know about J147 in terms of the link between aging and Alzheimer's," Dave Schubert, the head of Salk's Cellular Neurobiology Laboratory, said in a
