Centre helps to trial experimental Alzheimer’s drug

News from the web:

A SWINDON research centre is taking part in a global study of an experimental drug to treat a form of Alzheimer’s disease.

Prodromal AD is a condition in which a person’s memory loss is worse than can be expected by the normal ageing process alone, even though their ability to get on with daily activities is not affected to such an extent that they would be diagnosed with dementia.
