Brain receptor cell could be target for Alzheimer's treatment, study says

Scientists believe blocking a key receptor in brain cells may play a major role in diffusing the biological consequences of Alzheimer’s disease, according to a new study.

The research, published in the journal Neurobiology of Aging, analyzed the human body’s use of oxygen to produce energy, which can result in the formation of highly reactive molecules called oxygen-free radicals. Oxidative stress can also occur when the production of these free radicals is greater t...
