A drug combination found to preserve cognitive function in mice with Alzheimer’s disease

Combination of drugs preserves cognitive function for mice with Alzheimer’s Disease

Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine researchers have found that removing senescent (non-dividing) cells from brains of patients with Alzheimer’s can reduce inflammation, brain damage and cognitive decline. Researchers say that these findings add to the evidence that senescent cell damage is caused by Alzheimer’s.

Mark Mattson is a professor of neurology at the School of Medicine, and a senior researcher in the Laboratory of Neurosciences of the National Institute on Aging.

Nature Neuroscience published a report about the research on April 1.
