Alzheimer’s Disease: Period Pain Drug Cures Symptoms In Mice, New Research Shows

BY  @ International Business Times The incurable Alzheimer’s disease may now have a cure. A new research by the University of Manchester shows that the most common form of dementia can be fully cured with an anti-inflammatory drug, commonly used for period pain. Almost 7.5 million new cases of Alzheimer’s — a disease that causes acute problems with memory, thinking ability and behavior — diagnosed around the world every year. In the United States, about five million people currently suffer from the degenerative disease that has claimed one in three senior citizens with some form of dementia.

Mefenamic acid is available as a generic drug and is sold under a variety of brand names.   Read the rest, and watch the video at: http://www.ibtimes.com/alzheimers-disease-period-pain-drug-cures-symptoms-mice-new-research-shows-2401212
