  • I'm Shelby Cullinan with today's health news. Could reversing Alzheimer's in just one week

  • be possible soon? New research indicates that might be a real possibility. In a new study

  • on mice, a protein called IL-33 was found to reverse the cognitive decline and memory

  • issues associated with Alzheimer's in just one week while appearing to prevent future

  • symptoms as well. About 60 to 80 percent of dementia patients have Alzheimer's disease,

  • a progressive condition that interferes with daily life and eventually causes death. Scientists

  • from the University of Glasgow discovered that when mice bred to develop cognitive decline

  • as they age were given IL-33, not only did cognitive tasks and memory improve, but physical

  • symptoms of Alzheimer's were also less apparent. One physical indicator of Alzheimer's is brain

  • plaque, or an abnormal collection of protein between nerve cells in the brain. Alzheimer's

  • patients also have brain tangles which are collections of dying nerves. In this study,

  • the mice had less brain plaque after the week of treatment. According to the study authors,

  • IL-33 surrounds the plaque and releases an enzyme to digest it. Despite the study's results,

  • further studies are necessary to determine how much IL-33 is safe for humans, and the

  • study team advises against too much optimism. For dailyRx, I'm Shelby Cullinan.
