Hope for Alzheimer's Patients and Their Families ?

  As reported by Researchers Against Alzheimer's (RA2) there are 57 drugs in mid-stage testing (phase II) and 23 drugs in late-stage testing (phase III). These drugs could prevent or delay the symptoms of dementia. Phase II/III treatments include AC-1204, an oral drug for patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's whose mechanism of action is to improve mitochondrial metabolism through chronic ketosis. Also, a combination of albumin and immunoglobulin administered IV with possible anti-amyloid antibodies and albumin binding capacity is in mid/late stage development to treat mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease.
