Experimental Alzheimer's disease vaccine may cut dementia cases in half

from Newsweek

An experimental Alzheimer's disease vaccine may soon be able to cut dementia cases in half and delay effects of the degenerative brain disease by five years. Researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas said the new vaccine showed promising results during recent animal testing and are hopeful the vaccine will make it to human trials. The journey from animal tests to human use is long and arduous, and many promising cures do not withstand it. But a senior author of the research published this week in the journal Alzheimer's Research & Therapy told USA Today that if the vaccine is proven safe and effective during human trials, it could reduce the total number of dementia diagnoses in half. more
