The dSlo2 channel appears to play a role in suppressing hyperactivity in the brain that causes epileptic seizures.
Microglia, a key immune cell in the brain, appears to mediate the relationship between the gut microbiome and amyloid-beta deposits in male mouse models of Alzheimer’s disease.
A drug currently being tested in cancer clinical trials appears to prevent dysfunction in an immune cell signaling pathway associated with Alzheimer’s disease. Blocking the pathway could prevent Alzheimer’s from developing and slow the progression of s…
