Report: Scientists Find Alzheimer’s Treatment While Trying To Cure Diabetes


Although their goal was to cure diabetes, scientists may have stumbled onto a new medication to help treat the devastating effects of Alzheimer’s disease. According to a press release from researchers at Lancaster University, a new drug being tested for diabetes patients was found to have “significantly reversed memory loss” in test subjects and is now being examined as possible treatment for neurodegenerative disorders.

A daily injection of a drug initially developed for diabetes may reverse Alzheimer’s, early research suggests.Scientists at Lancaster University found the treatment – called a triple receptor agonist – significantly improved memory and reduced toxins in the brain when tested on mice.Experts last night said the drug has ‘clear promise’ to eventually become the first treatment to tackle Alzheimer’s.
