A drug that says to be reversing Alzheimer’s disease within a week is set to be given to people for the first time. Jabs of the IL-33 protein quickly restores memory to mice whose brain being ravaged with Alzheimer’s disease.
The Glasgow University researchers are elated and wants to test the drug on humans for the first time this year. Possibly, there will be available product in the market after five years. According to researcher Eddy Liew, experiments on mice doesn’t exactly work to humans but he is positive that IL-33 will succeed.
IL-33 is made in the body, with the highest levels in the brain and spinal cord. It shows that Alzheimer’s patients are low in protein and this new research will be boosting the patient’s protein levels.
