EXPERIMENTAL ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE VACCINE TESTED IN MICE CUT DEMENTIA CASES
Researchers at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas said a new experimental Alzheimer's disease vaccine showed promising results during recent testing in mice and are hopeful the vaccine will make it to human trials.
In the animal trials researchers said the experimental vaccine showed it could delay the effects of the degenerative brain disease.
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 if the vaccine is proven safe and effective during human trials it could reduce the total number of dementia diagnoses in half.
