Korean researchers discover key to Alzheimer’s treatment through brain immune cells


now Alzheimer’s disease is triggered by
a buildup of harmful proteins in the brain and it truly is an awful health
condition however there may be some light at the end of the tunnel because
in a positive breakthrough South Korean researchers may have found a key to
treat and prevent the disease by regulating immune sail cells in the
brain park se-young with more Alzheimer’s disease accounts for roughly
seventy percent of all people with dementia no cure has yet been found for
the disease which is linked to protein accumulation in the neurons Korean
researchers have shifted their focus to a type of immune cell in the brain known
as microglia which breaks down abnormal proteins inside the brain when exposed
to similar from harmful material microglia quickly produces energy and
this integrates a target however the buildup of toxic materials
in the brains of Alzheimer’s patients slows the energy production of microglia
eventually the microglia becomes unable to move to and destroy harmful materials
if microglia activity is at a 100 in the early stage of a stimulus from harmful
materials or from outside we found that it’s a function after chronic exposure
drops to as low as a 30% the researchers also found that artificially injecting a
substance into the less functional cell restores its function to the normal
range these new findings could open the door to an eventual cure and more
effective preventive measures for Alzheimer’s disease
