What research is being done with Alzheimer's disease?
There is hope for people with Alzheimer's disease.
Currently, research is being done on the effects of diet and exercise on Alzheimer's disease symptoms, on both new and existing drugs and herbal supplements, on prevention, and on other conditions associated with Alzheimer's disease. In addition, researchers are studying better ways to identify individuals at high risk for Alzheimer's disease and to track the disease progression and monitor the response to treatment. Information on how brain cells function is continually being discovered, and more money is being spent on research directed towards finding a cure.
For news announcing research findings, visit the Alzheimer's Disease Education and Referral Center (ADEAR). For information about participating in an Alzheimer's disease clinical trial, visit the ADEAR clinical trials page.
