there is hope!

I saw some interesting news on PBS last night - in England, researchers think they have found a drug that will remove the tangles in the brain causing dementia. The study is in Stage 2 and they still have to do a Stage 3 study (larger sample population), but for now they have patients who showed 81% improvement. The researcher said this could be on the market within 5 years! It may yet remove the spectre of Alzheimer's from our minds ... I sure hope so!

Love,

Martha
