Scientists Have Found a Cure for Alzheimer’s Disease

A drug that can slow the progression of Alzheimer’s disease was created by pharmacists in the United States. It helps the body get rid of deposits of amyloid-beta and tau proteins, which are believed to be the cause of neurodegenerative changes in patients. Alzheimer’s disease is the most common form of dementia associated with the formation in the brain of deposits of beta-amyloids and conglomerates of tau protein, which is part of neurons. This leads to the loss of neurons and synaptic connections in the cerebral cortex. Therefore, scientists all over the globe are searching for means that can prevent beta-amyloid and tau protein from accumulating.
