Alzheimer's drugs don't work.
A study being released today shows that 99.6% of drugs developed to Alzheimers don't work. An analysis of drugs developed between 2002-2012 showed that only one drug showed effectiveness, and 244 failed. The analysis of the studies was done at the Lou Ruvo Brain Center, part of the Cleveland Clinic. While researchers keep working on pharmaceutical treatments the lead author, Dr Jeffrey Cummings, stressed that it is important for people to make lifestyle changes and receive treatment for chronic diseases like diabetes.
