UCLA researcher: Therapeutic program reverses Alzheimer's memory loss
from McKnight's Long Term Care News
An intensive therapy regimen involving medication, diet and behavioral changes successfully reversed Alzheimer's-related memory loss in a first-of-its-kind trial, according to findings out of the University of California, Los Angeles. The small study involved 10 people experiencing memory loss from Alzheimer's and other conditions. Of these, nine showed "subjective or objective" memory improvement within three to six months of starting the program, the UCLA investigator determined. Of six who had left their jobs or were struggling, all were able to return to work or continue working. The one patient who did not improve had late-stage Alzheimer's.
