Keeping an Upbeat Attitude in April
A note from our members.
As residents here in South Florida, we are keeping a close eye on developments regarding this unprecedented situation as it affects our families, coworkers and clients. Our thoughts and efforts are in tandem with community, health care and governmental guidelines to stem the spread of COVID-19 as our number one priority. That being said, we are firm believers in the power of a positive attitude. With that in mind, the goal of our April newsletter is to encourage and uplift each other in a difficult time. All the best from our family to yours,
Recovering from Alzheimer's: Is it possible?
Early clinical research shows brain regeneration with novel treatment
Scientific research and progress around Alzheimer's has been primarily successful with lowering risk and slowing the progression of the disease. But, is it possible to actually heal the brain from the damage done by Alzheimer's? Up until now, the answer has been grim. However, new research has given hope that we might be able to answer that question differently in the future.
The Center for Innovation in Brain Science, at the University of Arizona, is examining a new compound, Allopregnanolone or allo, that researchers believe is capable of healing the brain from Alzheimer’s. Clinical trials are set to begin soon, focusing on those with early-stage Alzheimers or a genetic risk for the disease. If you are interested in participating in the trial, we've included the link to get more information. Click Here >
