Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF)'s New Study Zeroes in on the Genetic Roots of Alzheimer's


4/11/2007 2:28:48 AM

OKLAHOMA CITY, April 10, 2007 – Scientists have known for more than a decade that individuals with a certain gene are at higher risk for developing Alzheimer’s disease. Now a new study helps explain why this is so. The research, led by scientists at the Oklahoma Medical Research Foundation (OMRF), has uncovered a molecular mechanism that links the susceptibility gene to the process of Alzheimer’s disease onset. The findings appear in the April 11 issue of The Journal of Neuroscience and may lead to new pathways for development of Alzheimer’s therapeutics.
