A reviewer on Amazon asked me if I knew anything about new Alzheimer’s treatments in development, which led to this! I don’t think Amazon is letting through links in reviews or comments anymore, so this is definitely the best way to get it.
Here’s a great, brand-new scholarly article about the current state of stem cell therapies being developed for Alzheimer’s (personally, as y’all probably know by now, I think that’s where the cure will come from.)
The best part is that the full article is available free on Pubmed Central. Here’s the link for that:
Another thing I know of is some new work with identifying more information about a gene that carries risk for developing Alzheimer’s. The stem cell link is that induced pluripotent stem cells are being used in the process (which is the best use for them at the present time, I think. IMHO, they’re so not ready for clinical application.)
So take a look at those (especially the first one), and I’ll have Day Six of the UC-Davis conference coming up very soon. 🙂
