Dr Simon Ridley, Head of Research at Alzheimer’s Research UK, said:
“We are pleased to have supported this early stage research, suggesting that this experimental diabetes drug could also promote the growth of new brain cells.

“This research will help us understand the factors that keep nerve cells healthy, knowledge that could hold vital clues to tackling Alzheimer’s. With over half a million people in the UK living with the disease, learning more about how to keep our brain cells healthy is of vital importance. Funding for dementia research lags far behind that of other common diseases, but is essential if we are to realize the true potential of research like this.” Read Full Article Link here.
