Alzheimer's disease is one that many have dreaded for the longest time, thinking that there will be nothing to alter the said condition. However, there may be something to lift the hopes of many by controlling the situation as other diseases became.

Known as one of the most fatal forms of dementia, Alzheimer's disease is said to be common among people 60 years old and above. Over the course of many years, such condition has hurt many families, not just the patient but also for those obliged to care for them. Recent research has shown how the said mental disorder can potentially be managed, care of renowned neuroscientist from Belgium, Professor Bart De Strooper.

A recent report suggest that there will be a high chance that a person's brain can reboot itself, restoring mental capacity through stopping the disease's progression. As a strong claim, it was said that in over a decade, Alzheimer's disease can and will be treated with much control-similar to the way that HIV-AIDS is being given proper addressing today. De Strooper has not ended this claim, however, as something more extravagant is expected to come forth.

Further disclosure from De Strooper states that a drug will be available in 2025, promised two years ago by David Cameron. This, however, raised concerns and disputes as solanezumab failed to meet the expectations, steering away from progress to the Alzheimer's disease patients.

To reassure the people that such move is being made, De Strooper claims experts are already set to work on the said project by the end of next year. It will cordially be funded by the Medical Research Council, as well as both charities of the Alzheimer's Society and Alzheimer's Research UK. Those who have apparently undergone the hardships of Alzheimer's disease can now breathe easier that the situation can finally be handled accordingly.
