New drug for Alzheimer's in six years11th August 2011
Researchers at Lancaster University say that a new drug to prevent the development of Alzheimer’s disease could be tested on patients within six years.
The new drug would work by blocking the protein plaques that cause Alzheimer’s and it could have a major impact on the early diagnosis and treatment of a disease which affects about 750,000 people in the UK. The Lancaster team is part of a 14.6m euro international project which is working to find a cure for the disease.
