A protein in the brain, recently discovered by a group led by Domenico Pratico, professor of pharmacology and microbiology and immunology at Temple's School of Medicine, could play a key role in controlling Alzheimer's disease. The researchers say the protein is very active in the brains of people who suffer from the memory loss disease. The hope is to one day develop a way of controlling the protein as a way of treating Alzheimer's.
