“A tiny Alzheimer’s study with huge results,” by Emily Mongan, McKnight’s LTC News

“Researchers with the Buck Institute for Research on Aging and the University of California Los Angeles recently conducted a clinical trial that showed memory loss and cognitive decline in patients with early Alzheimer’s can actually be reversed.  Sure, the trial was small — just 10 patients — but the implications are huge. It’s reported to be the first study of its kind to show that not only can memories be regained, but that cognitive improvement can actually be sustained over time.”

LTC Comment (from Stephen A. Moses, President, Center for Long-Term Care Reform):
Well, maybe, but whether this new study proves out or not, the article is worth reading if for nothing more than its introduction acknowledging the frequency of Alzheimers-research head-fakes.
