Scientists at the University of Nebraska Medical Center have developed a cell therapy that improves learning and memory in mice with Alzheimer’s disease. The method activates the immune system to fight key aspects of the disease, including beta-amyloid plaques. Genetically modified regulatory T cells slowed plaque buildup and inflammation in nerve tissue, improving the cognitive abilities of diseased mice.

Scientists believe this method could be an effective treatment for Alzheimer’s that can be tested in humans.
