These findings explain the rapid improvement in cognition previously reported in Transgenic Alzheimer’s mice.

“The ability of PBT2 to promote the forming and reforming of connections between neurons is fundamental to the repair of brain tissue damaged by Alzheimer’s Disease, and the expression of key neuronal receptors and signaling proteins indicates that the repaired tissue is functional,” noted Prana’s Head of Research, Associate Professor Robert Cherny.  Professor Cherny concluded “These findings further demonstrate the unique combination of detoxification and neuronal restoration provided by PBT2 that underlie cognitive improvement in the clinic.”
