The first drug to slow the destruction of the brain in Alzheimer's has been called a momentous breakthrough. The research ends decades of failure and shows a new era of drugs to treat Alzheimer's - the most common form of dementia - is possible. The drug, lecanemab, has a small effect in the early stages of the disease. Please subscribe HERE 🤍bit.ly/1rbfUog #Alzheimers #BBCNews
The drug’s price will be an annual $26,500 for someone who is of average weight and Medicare won't cover it. To get an Alzheimer's diagnosis, you have to have Ambeta and Tau present in the brain. Problem with this is that 57% of these Alzheimer's cases have TDP-43 prion present as well. You cant cure, slow down, treat or stop a prion disease, it's a death sentence. Another 13% of Alzheimer's cases are actually misdiagnosed cases of SCJD. SCJD is the worst of the prion diseases. So, the price tag for this false hope is 26k? GTFO! With that bullshit. Keep reading, I'm not done.
This was written in 2003'. There's over 6 million cases now.
"Now people are beginning to realize that because something looks like sporadic CJD they can't necessarily conclude that it's not linked to (mad cow disease)," said Laura Manuelidis, section chief of surgery in the neuropathology department at Yale University, who conducted a 1989 study that found 13 percent of Alzheimer's patients actually had CJD.
Several studies, including the one by Manuelidis, have found autopsies reveal 3-percent-to-13-percent of patients diagnosed with Alzheimer's or dementia actually suffered from CJD. Those numbers might sound low, but there are 4-million Alzheimer's cases and hundreds of thousands of dementia cases in the United States. A small percentage of those cases could add up to 120,000 or more CJD victims going undetected and not included in official statistics."-
Decrease was negligible. Bad side effects. See New York Times. Big pharm again preys on desperate people for $$$$$ Disgusting.
Poor man. Doesn't know his own people are becoming a minority in their own land. Lost in his own mind. Rest in peace.

Is that new Pfizer Alzheimer mRNA jab?
Is this the drug that causes it or cures it ?
Oh some goods news. What a rarity. Let’s hope it continues.
Some ones got a fat bank account now
Thor is ordering a truck load of these new drug.
The best way to slow onset of alzenheimers is to stop giving the elderly so many pills. Pills including anti depressants, sleeping pills, etc etc.
Brain swelling is a serious side effect!
What is Vsauce doing in the thumbnail?
This is exciting news .
Yeah Yeah. It's called the aging process. Drugs are not the cure.
This is going to make billions of dollars
The US pharma company will patent it and sell it for 1000s a month. Only the 0.1% will be able to afford it.
Omega 3 fats and Circumin with pepperin is your best bet to prevent Alzheimer's or dementia.
It's interesting that we're not seeing great advancements in medicine much anymore, such as the development of effective treatments for Alzheimer's and other dementias. I also suspect that this is due to medical schools admitting people who are not creative and do not think out of the box, which in turn delivers similarly flawed medical doctors down the track. Medical school admission requirements like bullshit entrance exams and interviews that gift of the gab types can sweet talk and big talk their way through are the cause of this admission of uncreative medical students and future doctors. Consider the "miracle decade" of the 1970s for medicine. The doctors who achieved the miraculous medical discoveries of the 1970s found it much easier to get admitted to medical school than med school hopefuls find today, and so creative, out of the box types were able to become medical doctors. To show you how narrow minded and short sighted doctors are today, I once had a conversation with a podiatrist who almost died from a stroke. While she was recovering from the stroke, her blood pressure was consistently low, so high blood pressure medication should not have been prescribed. However, her idiot doctors prescribed high blood pressure medication anyway because that was the "standard treatment" for stroke. Low blood pressure plus high blood pressure medication equalled a near fatal medical emergency for this poor woman, all because of idiot doctors who cannot think out of the box. The same sort of idiot doctors are now repeatedly failing us on developing new treatments for Alzheimer's and other dementias.
