HARTFORD, Conn. — Researching a new drug compound on mice, Yale School of Medicine researchers were able to reverse the effects of Alzheimer’s on learning and memory, the school announced Tuesday.

Yale School of Medicine psychiatry professor Paul Lombroso and others studied thousands of molecules, which could become drugs, in search of one or more that would inhibit the negative effects on the brain of a specific type of protein. In this latest study, scientists are showing for the first time that inhibiting the negative effects of a specific protein can reverse memory and learning deficits associated with Alzheimer’s in mice.
