Study: A Daily Dose Of Ibuprofen Could Prevent Alzheimer’s
This Drug For Back Pain And Headache Inhibits The Action Of A Substance Related To This Mental Condition
Ibuprofen is a quick way to treat back pain or headaches. Even though this mediation is oriented to pain relief, researchers have discovered that it could also be used to treat Alzheimer’s disease. It is based on the mechanism used by ibuprofen to reduce the inflammation caused by a substance related to this mental condition. This substance, an amyloid peptide called Abeta 42, is present in the saliva of adults with Alzheimer’s as well as adults with a healthy mental condition, but with a high risk of suffering from Alzheimer’s. According to the study, a daily dose of ibuprofen, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), could prevent Alzheimer’s in patients that have shown a high level of Abeta42.
