New research has found no link between hormone replacement therapy and dementia risk, however those receiving oestrogen-progesterone therapy for over five years were found to have a small increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease. The BMJ have published the research today (Wednesday 29 September). What is HRT? Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) is commonly offered to help…
New research that patients with Alzheimer’s disease taking a class of drugs known as gliptins have lower levels of the hallmark Alzheimer’s protein in their brains. They also had better scores on memory and thinking tests years after the beginning of the study compared to those not on the drug or those who didn’t have diabetes.
Research links the cocktail party problem with an increased risk of dementia in a study conducted at the University of Oxford. Alzheimer’s Research UK comments on the findings.
