A New Focus on Preventing Alzheimer’s

For the longest time the treatment focus on Alzheimer’s has been to find ways to treat it effectively. But in the last year or so, there has been an increased effort on preventing Alzheimer’s and other related dementias.

While there was much media coverage in 2016 about a highly touted experimental drug that failed in its effort to prevent the disease, that has not changed the current push to find a cure.

The Alzheimer’s Association launched a campaign last year to promote the concept of the first Alzheimer’s survivor.

And while the results of the recent drug testing were disappointing, that has not deterred other scientists from finding a medicine that can slow or stop the progress of brain degeneration. These ongoing trials, along with new ways to diagnose Alzheimer’s more easily, leaves those working on prevention of this debilitating disease optimistic about the future.

But as we are all aware that requires a continued effort to raise funds to deal with the costs related to research and any new medications. It is rare today for any of us to not know someone dealing with this disease. Consider that when you have the opportunity to donate or help raise funds for Alzheimer’s research.
