Possible new treatment for dementia/prion

Results so far seems promising.

"Scientists hope they have found a drug to stop all neurodegenerative brain diseases, including dementia.

In 2013, a UK Medical Research Council team stopped brain cells dying in an animal for the first time, creating headline news around the world.

But the compound used was unsuitable for people, as it caused organ damage.

Now two drugs have been found that should have the same protective effect on the brain and are already safely used in people."

That indeed would be a fantastic breakthrough. Thank heavens for medical research. All forms of dementia are so sad to witness.
