Growing Closer to a Cure for Alzheimer's
Alzheimer’s disease is the leading cause of dementia. It is a chronic neurodegenerative disease, which results in the degradation and loss of neurons in the brain. Specifically, Alzheimer’s decreases the affected person’s memory and ability to think.
However, in recent years, more and more knowledge about how Alzheimer’s develops has been accrued. Researchers and medical professionals are able to mitigate some of the effects of this unfortunate disease, and eventually may be able to treat it to such an extent so as to cure Alzheimer’s.
