OIC... all of which are treated by powerful drugs, and which clash with things like Aricept..
Just that I can't find, or did not hear anything on that drug on the UK news or Internet. Can only find something about it from 02Very confusing that the press are running the two stories simultaneously.
Hi Hazel was this the ITV Scottish News?What struck me was a snippet on the six o'clock news:
"Exciting news of a new drug to halt Alzheimer's will be announced in an hour's time." (Not verbatim, just quoting from memory)
The sort of snippet that generally presages news of a political resignation -- or a new baby for Madonna.
OK, it's not going to halt AD, but the fact that it was important enough give advance notice is exciting, I believe.
For most of us, if we can't get hold of it, it is about as much use as a chocolate fireguard. Sorry for downbeat opinionDaily Mail Article said:It could be available to patients within four years
although, in the wake of the NHS ban on the £2.50-a-day drug Aricept, there are concerns over whether it would be funded on the Health Service.
