Dementia is proposed to be treated with antibiotics

Scientists of the research Institute of SCRIPPS (USA) put forward the hypothesis, according to which I propose to treat neurodegenerative diseases accompanied by characteristic symptoms of dementia (senile dementia), possibly with antibiotics. In particular, the antibiotics according to the researchers can be effective in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and disease.

Scientific experts have conducted a series of experiments on worms the nematode and found that the antibiotic minocycline successfully resists the formation of clusters of synuclein and beta-amyloid that are related to the brain damage characteristic of the disease development of symptoms of dementia. Experts said that exposure to the antibiotic contributed to the reduction of aggregation of proteins that extended the nematode life.

“Most effective dose of the antibiotic suitable for the treatment depends on what amount of protein produced in the body,” explained scientific experts.
If a similar therapeutic effect of the antibiotic will manifest itself in people in the fight against neurodegenerative diseases antibiotic therapy can become a treatment standard allow the authors of the study. Currently, patients with diseases which are manifested the typical symptoms of dementia, there is no effective treatment, most such patients receive only symptomatic treatment.
