Israel Reports Finding on Alzheimer’s

Scientists at Bar-Ilan University have reported finding a medication to treat Alzheimer’s disease, a degenerative condition that affects middle-age and elderly people, and is usually manifested by memory loss.

Yediot Achronot reported Monday that a team of scientists, led by Professor Shlomo Eliahu, developed a medication that reverses memory loss in patients with Alzheimer’s.

The scientists said they tested it successfully on humans, but it needs further development before being approved for mass production.
