MSF blocks drug-simulated Alzheimer’s in rats.

Methanesulfonyl Fluoride (MSF) Blocks Scopolamine-Induced Amnesia in Rats (1993)

This study was meant to simulate the effects of MSF on  Alzheimer’s by the use of an drug called Scopolamine to induce amnesia. The study compared normal rats, to rats treated with Scopolamine to simulate Alzheimer syndrome, and finally rats treated with scopolamine and MSF to simulate MSF-treated Alzheimer syndrome. The study showed that rats treated with MSF to counteract the effects of scopolamine were able to learn the maze significantly quicker than untreated rats, and nearly as well as healthy rats.
