Scientists make a big step in the battle against Alzheimer's Disease.
Doctors with the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Florida managed to remove amyloid plaques from the brains of mice.
Those plaques are a hallmark of the disease.
Researchers found the plaques clear when they injected a protein called "IL6" to the mice's immune system.
The finding's a surprise, because researchers thought the protein would have actually made the plaques worse.
The hope now is to use these findings to develop a new treatment for people with the degenerative disease.
The research appears in the "Faseb Journal," which The Federation Of American Societies For Experimental Biology publishes.
