Vitamin A Found in Brussels Sprouts May Help Treat Alzheimer’s
Researchers from Aberdeen and Durham Universities developed a medication based on vitamin A, found in Brussels sprouts and carrots, that may stop the breakdown of nerves and brain cells leading to the Alzheimer’s disease.
Having completed a two-year project with the cost 250,000, the scientists developed vitamin A synthetically and hope that now they are coming closer to the treatment of such conditions as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and motor neuron disease.
Lead author Professor Peter McCaffery, who researches vitamin A at Aberdeen University, comments: “We are moving forward with a new therapeutic which could be used to help people with Alzheimer's disease. Our work is still at an early stage but we believe this is a positive development and the new drugs seem to protect [nerve cells].”
