Researchers Develop a Potential Vaccine Alzheimer's Disease

Researchers Develop a Potential Vaccine Alzheimer's Disease

(epharmanews)- Alzheimer’s disease has been the subject of many research and studies trying to find a successful treatment or a least decrease the risk to developing it. Recently, coffee was found to significantly decrease the risk to develop Alzheimer’s disease. However, this new discovery might put an end to the prevalence of this disease.

Scientists’ efforts to stop Alzheimer’s disease are the result of an increasing fear from this progressive disease that can be found in 5.3 million patients today and it is estimated that a 100 million people will develop this disease by 2050.

Alzheimer’s disease is the main risk factor for developing dementia, which is considered as the fastest epidemic nowadays according to WHO. Alzheimer’s disease results from the accumulation of amyloids on the nerve cells which eventually destroy them.

Researchers at the Karolinska Institutet, Sweden, tested a new vaccine known as “CAD106” which provides an active, effective immunity designed to direct the human immune system to defend the body against amyloids accumulated in the brain.

After three years of experiments, researchers found that 80% of treated patients developed their own antibodies to target the amyloids. What really surprised the researchers was the fact that this vaccine had no side effects.

The results of this study are published in the Lancet Neurology.

The researchers believe that this suggests that the CAD106 vaccine is a tolerable treatment for patients with mild to moderate Alzheimer's. Larger trials must now be conducted to confirm the CAD106 vaccine's efficacy.
