Roundworms May Be the Answer to Alzheimer's Disease

The connection between roundworms and Alzheimer's disease: How can they help?

The research established a compelling connection between roundworms and humans, as well as how it can help Alzheimer’s patients. According to the research, the way Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s disease are affecting the human brains is similar to how the harmful bacteria affects the worms. With the onset of these diseases, nerve cells are damaged because of the toxic proteins the diseases produce. Eventually, these cells die, causing the malfunctioning of certain brain functions. It also alters the memories and thoughts in the process. These reasons led researchers to believe that there is a bright future waiting ahead for treating and preventing any types of neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s.
