After studying a specific gene in mice that might be linked to Alzheimer’s disease, Israeli researchers think they might be one step closer to finding a possible treatment.

Researchers lead by Professor Daniel M. Michaelson managed to change the nature of the APOE gene in mice, which has been associated with the debilitating, neuro-degenerative disease.

The gene has a healthy form called APOE3 and a disease-related form APOE4, which is found in 60 percent of sufferers.
