Periodically I will search the web for newly publicized results of dementia trials and will post them here. So far, no “magic bullets” have been discovered and many scientists are focusing on studying present healthy populations to see what lifestyle differences may benefit/protect the participants as they age.
Their search for a cure through the influence of various compounds that might reverse the disease has so far hit a brick wall. The increase of funding by the Gates Foundation will hopefully spur science in a new direction that will have a great impact! Researchers are honing in on our genetic codes in hope that when they discover the genes effecting the various dementia diseases, they will then be able to reverse or prevent them.
