Drug's effect on Alzheimer's may depend on severity of disease

A cancer drug that has shown promise against Alzheimer's disease in mice and has begun early clinical trials has yielded perplexing results in a novel mouse model of AD that mimics the genetics and pathology of the human disease more closely than any other animal model.

Their findings, published in the Journal of Immunology , point to a new therapeutic target to interrupt the vicious cycle of inflammation and bone erosion in rheumatoid arthritis .
