Here are some important points.
- This research was conducted at a top notch, reputable University, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.
- The drug, Bexarotene, has been approved for the treatment of cancer by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has been available for more than a decade.
- Available information indicates that Bexarotene has a good safety and side-effect profile. This is important.
- Dr.Gary Landreth said that clinical trials in humans will start soon.
- Rudy Tanzi commented here, "If this drug performs in humans that way it has in Alzheimer's mouse models, it will be terrific for Alzheimer's patients".
