New Research Could Lead to Cure

Researchers at Cambridge University have found a new way to study the development of Alzheimer’s disease that may soon lead to a cure. By observing live brain cells that have developed from Alzheimer’s-prone stem cells, researchers are able to essentially “grow” the disease in a Petri dish. This allows them to see exactly how Alzheimer’s affects the brain, and lets enables them to test possible cures while observing their effects in real time.

Out of the thousands of medications currently being tested, the researchers expect to pinpoint an effective treatment within the year.
