HIV And Alzheimer’s Disease Will Soon Be The Same, But How Is That Possible?
The chairman of a major new dementia institute has recently claimed that within a span of a decade, Alzheimer's disease might possibly be as manageable as HIV. As revealed by the leading health charities, it was found out that a £250-million UK Dementia Research Institute will soon be opened in London by next year. Experts have already appointed Professor Bart De Strooper, a renowned Belgian neuroscientist, as the head of the institute who will reportedly run the office from a 'hub' at University College London.
The Link Between HIV And Alzheimer's, Finally Revealed
According to reports revealed by Independent, Professor De Strooper believes that there is a bigger chance that the brain could re-wire itself and restore lost mental ability once progress of the disease has been halted. He adds that in year 2025, it's not about the idea of dementia's cure that they will be celebrating; rather, it's with the notion that by then, there will be groups of patients who can be treated in much the same way HIV-Aids is treated today.
Furthermore, as Daily Mail reports it, the Professor has also claimed that another drug would soon emerge in time to meet a pledge, made two years ago by David Cameron, saying that a treatment for Alzheimer's would be available by 2025. It was found that the alleged promise of cure has been casted into doubt when solanezumab which was then considered to be the brightest hope for dementia has shown to make no clinical difference to Alzheimer's patients.
Meanwhile, Professor De Strooper has added that in just the same way Aids in the 1970s and 80s was seen as a terrible doom or punishment of the gods, but is now manageable and treatable. It was found that the institute will be funded by the Medical Research Council and charities Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK; which is due to start operating towards the end of next year.
