New hope and breakthrough in Alzheimer's treatment. In a paper published today a team of researchers Gary Landreth and Paige
Cramer of Case Western University found that a drug called Bexarotene has a remarkable effect on mice afflicted with a
condition similar to Alzheimer’s in humans. These mice have similar plaques in their brains, compose of beta-amyloid proteins, and they show behavioral and cognitive impairment similar to the problems experienced by Alzheimer’s patients.

Within just hours of administering bexarotene to these mice, the plaques started to clear. If that weren’t amazing enough, within a few days the mice also recovered cognitive abilities that they had lost. In particular, they regained the ability to make nests, a behavior that normal mice have and that the Alzheimer’s mice had lost. They also regained at least some of their sense of smell. Bexarotene known commonly as Targretin is a drug that came into market in 1999 and was originally meant for treating certain types of Skin cancer. It is also used off label for lung cancer and breast cancer. If you are a care giver just makes sure your doctor knows about Bexarotene.
