Progression Of Skeletal Muscle Disorder Slowed By Vaccine
A potential vaccine for Alzheimer’s disease also has been shown in mice to slow the weakening of muscles associated with inclusion body myositis, a disorder that affects the elderly.
The finding brings new hope for IBM patients with weakness, inflammation or atrophy of muscles in their fingers, wrists, forearms or quadriceps. There is no cure for IBM, nor is there an effective treatment, according to the National Institutes of Health.
“The immunization wasn’t a complete fix, but it significantly slowed the deterioration of motor function in our IBM mice,” said Frank LaFerla, director of UC Irvine’s Institute for Brain Aging and Dementia. “I hope our discovery leads to clinical trials and, eventually, a vaccine for people suffering from or at risk for IBM.”Natural Anti Wrinkle Creams that will support your skin natural ability to repair it self, by improving collagen, elastin and protecting your skin from environment toxins.
