A promising treatment for Alzheimer’s disease has been discovered by researchers while working on an experimental drug designed for cancer and its effects. The potential treatment was found when they tested it on mice, and showed various effects it has in the neural area, and not just its original intention to get rid of cancer.

The study entitled “AD-linked R47H-TREM2 Mutation Induces Disease-Increasing Microglial Conditions Via AKT Hyperactivation “published in Science Translational Medicine focuses on the new treatment of Alzheimer’s. damage to the body.
The said drug was aimed at “microglia”, a known cell that under healthy conditions protects the brain from harmful infections or problems, but when it breaks down, it is known to lead to Alzheimer’s disease. The drug has been intended for brain microglia treatment related to cancer, but was shown to have certain effects on memories and Alzheimer’s, hence its new focus.

Potential drug was tested on mice; Can it answer two problems in one?
The said treatment was originally applied to mice, something that has helped in research to see its effects on the brain, as experimental applications are already in focus for the study. It is still unknown whether it could “beat two birds with one stone” or answer two problems in one, as it is a cancer drug and at the same time an Alzheimer’s treatment.
Health and technology improvement today
Health and technology have become one of the latest discoveries as scientists and scientists have added the use of both in terms of the availability of applications and treatments for certain diseases. In recent discoveries, Alzheimer’s and dementia have a lot of treatments at work, and one is the use of music that has been patterned to help the brain in its memories.
On the other hand, there is a potential cancer cure that was developed by researchers who would undergo a monoclonal antibody crystallization, something that can only be achieved when gravity is almost zero. This potential cure will soon arrive at the International Space Station as sanctioned by NASA, aboard the SpaceX Cargo Dragon.
The innovations in health are growing, and it is because of the many technological advances that people have made now, with a focus on making the world a better place.
The dedication of these scientists and scientists is helping to shape the world into a safer place, where modern medicine answers most of the problems that were originally thought to be incurable.
