Abstract:The article offers information on the research conducted by scientists at the University of Massachusetts. Here, scientists reported a possible link between S-adenosyl-methionine (SAMe) and the development of Alzheimer's disease. Experimenting with mice bred to possess genetic risk factors for the development of dementia, scientists noted that these mice developed oxidative damage leading to cognitive impairment when divested of the B-vitamin, folic acid.
