Researchers report new methods to identify Alzheimer?s drug candidates that have anti-aging properties

LA JOLLA?Old age is the greatest risk factor for many diseases, including Alzheimer?s disease (AD) and cancer. Geroprotectors are a recently identified class of anti-aging compounds. New Salk research has now identified a unique subclass of these compounds, dubbed geroneuroprotectors (GNPs), which are AD drug candidates and slow the aging process in mice.
