November 8, 2012New, Improved Mouse Model of Human Alzheimer’s May Enable Drug Discovery
Researchers have developed a transgenic mouse that carries a human gene known to increase risk of Alzheimer’s 15-fold. The new mouse, which mimics the genetics of the human disease more closely than any existing model, provides new evidence for the earliest cause of Alzheimer’s and may prove more useful in the development of drugs to prevent or treat the disease.
