BBC: Wonder-Drug Could Stop Neurodegenerative Brain Diseases

A recent BBC article explores a new ‘wonder-drug’ which scientists hope may stop all neurodegenerative brain diseases, including dementia. 

Two drugs have been found that should be able to stop brain cells from dying, and these drugs are already safely used in people,.

Prof Giovanna Mallucci, from the MRC Toxicology Unit in Leicester, UK, wants to start human clinical trials on dementia patients soon and expects to know whether the drugs work within two to three years.

For a more detailed review of neurodegeneration and how this novel approach could halt a range of neurodegenerative diseases, please refer to the BBC article and the study linked thereto.
