Alzheimer’s is one of the most terrible diseases. To witness the personality of friends and relatives dissolve with their memories is terrible to behold. At the back of everyone’s mind as they get older is the worry that it could happen to them. Death is a reality but could it be that the living death of dementia could soon be a thing of the past?
A new treatment has been tried with great success in mice. The drug causes a reversal of the protein deposits that cause dementia. They completely disappear!
If this treatment works on humans (not all animal trials do) it could herald the end of our fear of dementia. What a great thing!
