Could Gene Therapy Work for Alzheimer’s Disease?

" Researchers at the Imperial College London have just released data from animal studies in which they were able to prevent the development of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) by using a virus to deliver a specific gene into the brain. The results from this study could open avenues toward potential new treatments for the disease.

"Although these findings are very early, they suggest this gene therapy may have potential therapeutic use for patients,” explained senior study investigator Magdalena Sastre, Ph.D., senior lecturer in the department of medicine at the Imperial College London. “There are many hurdles to overcome, and at the moment the only way to deliver the gene is via an injection directly into the brain. However, this proof-of-concept study shows this approach warrants further investigation."
