Abstract [en]
  • Two hundred experimental drugs intended to treat Alzheimer's disease have failed in the past 30 years. Without new therapies, the number of patients worldwide will increase dramatically by 2050.
  • A ray of hope has come recently from a clinical trial that showed that dementia's cognitive impairment might be prevented by paying close attention to various health factors.
  • Participants in the study who followed a regimen of health-related steps registered improvements on cognitive measures such as memory and mental-processing speed.
  • Results of this research suffice for health care professionals to begin making a series of recommendations to patients on diet, exercise and levels of social engagement that may help prevent dementia.
