A jab to halt Alzheimer’s could be available within a few years | the Daily Mail

A revolutionary drug that stops Alzheimer’s disease in its tracks could be available within a few years.It could prevent people from reaching the devastating final stages of the illness, in which sufferers lose the ability to walk, talk and even swallow, and end up totally dependent on others.

The jab, which is now being tested on patients, could be in widespread use in as little as six years.

The most common cause of dementia, Alzheimer’s affects around 500,000 Britons, with about 500 new cases diagnosed every day as people live longer.

You read about things like this and wonder how much hope to have. It would be nice though.
