Chronic Inflammation Pushes Alzheimer's Risk

Chronic Inflammation Pushes Alzheimer's Risk

While there is no doubt that Alzheimer's disease is nothing less than a mystery for researchers, it has been found that chronic inflammation could be treated as a sign of developing Alzheimer's disease later.

It has been found while a trail on mice that early inflammation in mice was a clear sign of them developing Alzheimer's disease later. It has been claimed by a team of researchers from the University of Zurich along with that from the ETH Zurich and University of Bern that so far it has not been established how inflammation pushes the risk of Alzheimer's disease (AD).

It is believed that these results if applied to humans, there would be drugs developed to deal with chronic inflammation early. “The results of this study suggest that repeated or severe infections may contribute to the development of Alzheimer's disease in mice”, said Dr. Marie Janson, from the charity Alzheimer's Research UK, in Biomed Central's open access journal of Neuroinflammation.

Alzheimer's disease (AD) has affected millions of people around the world and that’s what has made the disease nothing less than a medical anomaly. There is need for more research to be done so that a lot more is able to know about the disease which has become a challenge for the medical fraternity.
