Serhat TUNAR -TDO- In a study conducted in the United States, it was revealed that the disease did not slow down and the cognitive decline did not stop in patients using drugs developed for Alzheimer's disease.
According to the news published in the New York Times newspaper, scientists have investigated whether Alzheimer's disease can be stopped if treatment is started before symptoms appear. Participants were selected among those who are still healthy but have a rare genetic mutation that will definitely lead to dementia development.
Participants received one of two drugs developed for the experiment every month for an average of five years via infusion or syringes. In the meantime, many data of these people such as blood tests, brain scans, water extraction from the spinal cord and cognitive tests were also observed in detail. The result of the research revealed that medications do nothing to slow down Alzheimer's or stop cognitive decline.
