Is There A Cure For Alzheimer's Disease?

Question: Is there a cure for Alzheimer's disease?

Answer: As of today there is no cure for Alzheimer's disease. It is a relentlessly progressive process that is ultimately fatal. It can play out over many, many years but it generally is a progressive course. However there is a great deal of research underway right now that is aimed at actually treating the underlying disease process itself.

Through the development of medications and treatments, we're hopeful that in the very near future we will be able to have an impact on the ultimate course of the disease process.
