Inhibiting the protein Hsp70 rapidly reduces brain levels of tau, a protein associated with Alzheimer's disease when it accumulates as memory-choking tangles. One of the more effective Hsp70-inhibitor drugs was a derivative of methylthioninium chloride, or Rember, a new laboratory study by neuroscientists found.
