Researchers have new developments in the fight against Alzheimer’s.

According to new research out of Washington University’s School of Medicine,¬†antidepressants may stop the formation of Alzheimer-related brain plaques.

The study found mice and adults who were given the antidepressant citalopram, sold under the brand name Celexa, experienced a significant drop in the production of a primary ingredient in brain plaques.

These plaques are a risk factor for Alzheimer’s Disease.

The researchers say it is too early to prescribe antidepressants for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease, but their study shows this is a topic worth studying more.
