New treatments for memory loss
Dr MacSweeney discusses the new Alzheimer’s treatments in the interview. These disease-modifying treatments could be more effective than current medications. Watch the interview to discover why clinical trials are important in changing the future for people with Alzheimer’s and dementia. Re:Cognition Health is currently running studies investigating new drugs for Lewy Body dementia, fronto-temporal dementia, vascular disease, Alzheimer’s disease as well as Parkinson’s disease.
Clinical trials for Alzheimer’s disease
Acknowledging that it’s been 15 years since a new medication for Alzheimer’s disease was licensed for global use, Dr MacSweeney highlights that only through research and education will we be able to find new treatments to stop the symptoms of memory problems from progressing. Clinical trials play an important role in the ongoing search for a cure for Alzheimer’s disease.
