British researchers are developing a drug which they hope could stop Alzheimer’s before it seriously affects a person’s mental abilities.
In early trials conducted on mice they found the compound reduced by a third the number of `plaques` on the brain, which are associated with the disease.
New drug can stop Alzheimer`s early
A new drug for Alzheimer`s has shown “encouraging” results in early trials on mice, claim British scientists who believe that it can stop the disease before it seriously affects a person`s mental abilities.
Scientists have assembled a “timeline” of the unseen progress of Alzheimer’s before symptoms appear.
A team at Washington University School of Medicine looked at families with a genetic risk of the disease.
Writing in the New England Journal of Medicine, they say signs appeared up to 25 years before the expected onset of the disease.
