20] revealed that mice with amyloid-β peptide intracerebroventricularly injected performed significantly better in behavioral tests of memory and learning when pretreated with NAC in comparison to those without pretreatment. NAC pretreatment was also found to significantly reverse reductions in GSH and ACh. Clinical Studies While considerable experimental evidence exists for the neuroprotective role of NAC, there is currently a scarcity of clinical studies examining its efficacy in the treatment and prevention of dementia.
