There is some potentially great news in the research in the fight against Alzheimer’s Disease.  In a new study, British researchers say they have developed a drug that stopped degenerative brain diseases in lab mice.

The drug prevents brain cells from dying by targeting how the brain reacts to abnormally shaped proteins that are generated by the disease. However, the mice in the experiment had severe weight loss and raised blood sugar.

While the results are encouraging, they are very preliminary.  Further research is needed to see if the intervention can be made safe and effective in people
