Scientists: HIV medication will help people recovering from a stroke
The most serious problem associated with the rehabilitation of people after a stroke remains the loss of part of their functions by the brain. As numerous studies have shown, so far none of the tools directly affected the restoration of lost neural connections. However, after a series of experiments, the researchers suggested that the source of therapy could be the CCR5 cellular protein, which allows HIV to enter healthy cells. Scientists have discovered that in mice, disabling this receptor helps surviving neurons create new connections.
