Fresh hope to treat and prevent Alzheimer’s disease
Australian researchers could be one step closer to finding a vaccine for Alzheimer’s disease.
There are more than 7.5 million new cases of Alzheimer’s diagnosed around the world every year, and scientists say they are closer than ever.
Flinders University Professor Nikolai Petrovsky told 3AW Breakfast clinical trials still needed to be undertaken.
It is hoped the vaccine could prevent the onset of the disease and even treat patients with an early onset of Alzheimers.
‘Hopefully in the next three to five years we know if we will be successful,’ he said.
