Treatments

Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and debilitating disease that affects many of us, either directly or through someone we know, yet science has still not revealed a cure. Several compounds are being currently tested to prevent and treat the disease. Some current treatments include:

cholinergic pathway degeneration

antioxidants

anti-inflammatory drugs

estrogen

However, while many researchers are devoting a lot of time and resources into finding a treatment that will ameliorate Alzheimer's, no treatment has, as of yet, been completely successful.
