Daily pill halts Alzheimer’s in its tracks


“This is an unprecedented result in the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease,” said Prof Claude Wilschik, leader of a British research team. The results of the Phase 2 trials carried out by a team from the University of Aberdeen (UK) suggests that the new medication known as “rember” stops Alzheimer’s by as much as 81%. The findings are being hailed as the biggest breakthrough in the batle against Alzeimer’s in over a century.

Patients with the brain disorder had no significant decline in their mental function over a 19-month period.

‘We appear to be bringing the worst affected parts of the brain functionally back to life,’ said Dr Claude Wischik, who led the research.

It is the first time medication has been developed to target the ‘tangles’ in the brain that destroy nerve cells, leading to deteriorating memory.

The drug helps to disrupt this process, preventing the formation of new tangles and loosening those already created.

Last night the findings were hailed as the biggest breakthrough in the battle against Alzheimer’s since 1907.

Eventually the drug could be used to stop the disease in its early stages before symptoms have even appeared, it is hoped.

  1. Sure hope that pill works. Lots of folks have had their lives devastated by Alzheimers.
    And, I might need it one day, my own self.

    Better stay away from it.

  3. I do, Swamps, I plan to stay as far away from Alzheimers as I can.

  4. Well hey guys I mean sure Alzheimers is really not the illness to be involved with but it sure is good to know that as days go by we are most definitely getting closer to finding a better cure for it!
