Alzheimer’s Disease: Defusing The Bomb By 2025

Published in In Vivo Beyond Beta-Amyloid  The US FDA has approved six drugs to treat Alzheimer’s symptoms, all of which work by increasing the amount of neurotransmitters in the brain, helping nerve cells in the brain to communicate. These approved therapies are: Razadyne (galantamine), Exelon (rivastigmine), Aricept, Namenda,Namzaric (memantine + donepezil) and Cognex, which is no longer widely sold in the US. None of these drugs prevent or treat the cause of Alzheimer’s, nor do they slow progression of the disease.
