Alzheimer's drug trial to begin

25th November 2009

A year-long clinical trial on a treatment which may help prevent the onset of advanced Alzheimer's is getting underway at the Glasgow Memory Clinic.

It is now enrolling patients to test the effectiveness of an experimental drug called dimebon with more than 1,000 selected patients from around the world due to take part in the trial, which is open to patients currently taking Aricept. It is hoped dimebon will help by improving memory, cognition and the ability of patients to care for themselves.
