As it is still Brain Health Awareness Month, the focus of my blogs contnues to be on brain health! A colleague I’ve posted about before, and possibly on my (now inactive) Living Beyond Dementia™ website, Dr Dave Jenkins, a general practitioner who has been working in this field for many years now, also with positive results, has sent me another exciting update.
Read this exciting paper he sent me last week, Precision Medicine Approach to Alzheimer’s Disease: Successful Proof-of-Concept Trial, which you can download here. I’ve added a précis of the results from the article, Conclusions and Relevance below:
Results: All outcome measures revealed improvement: statistically highly significant improvement in MoCA scores, CNS Vital Signs Neurocognitive Index, and AQ-C were documented. No serious adverse events were recorded.
Conclusions and Relevance: Based on the cognitive improvements observed in this study of patients with Alzheimer’s disease or mild cognitive impairment, a larger, randomized, controlled trial of the precision medicine therapeutic approach described herein is warranted.
And if you missed this paper from 2018, have a read of it now; Reversal of Cognitive Decline: 100 Patients
There are of course, still a great many sceptics out there, but for me, and a growing number of people with MCI and with a cpnfirmed diagnosis of any type of dementia, it is the closest thing we have to HOPE.
