Surprise Discovery Allows Scientists to Block Alzheimer’s

(Independent) Scientists developing treatments for the devastating brain disorder Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease (CJD) have unexpectedly blocked the onset of Alzheimer's disease, the most common cause of dementia. Researchers said they were "thrilled" at the unexpected discovery that two antibodies – extensively studied in relation to CJD – may also have an affect on Alzheimer's disease. Almost 500,000 people a year in the UK and 20 million worldwide suffer from Alzheimer's.
