Posted 5:16 PM 9/11/2012 : Local Alzheimer's Association reps stop by to discuss upcoming walk
TUCSON - An experimental Alzheimer's drug that failed to stop mental decline may be useful in earlier stages of the disease.
New research suggests the drug could slow the development of plaque that clogs the brains of Alzheimer's patients.
The Harvard study found it worked better than a placebo in the earliest stages of this disease.
That's promising research for the thousands of families affected by Alzheimer's, a progressive disease, which, currently, has no cure.
Today on News 4 Tucson at 4 p.m. Kelly Raach and Dan Lawler with the Alzheimer's Association stopped by to talk more about how you can get involved in the fight against Alzheimer's.
Kelly and Dan talked about the Walk to End Alzheimer's taking place in Tucson on October 13.
Check out the latest events FC Tucson has scheduled.
