    Default Scientists May Have Found a Potential Alzheimer’s Cure

    The scientists conducted their study on mice and looked into the experimental drug GLP-1. GLP-1 is used to better control blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes. Recognizable brand names include Victoza, Byetta, and Bydureon.
    The new study did more than just research GLP-1. It went after three diabetes-related targets and the scientists found that the drug “significantly reversed the memory deficit” in the mice who were administered the drug.

    You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Swordsmyth again.

    You know the curious thing? That all these medications normally prescribed / used for treatment of Diabetes showing promise for afflictions causing neuro-degeneration diseases. If you'll recall, my post on Metformin being found to work to retard cellular degeneration and being studied as a way to increase quality of life as we age as it can help keep normal biological breakdown from affecting our health at more advanced ages. Metformin being mainly used for Type 2 Diabetes treatment.

    VERY appreciative of the article!
