The pharmaceutical company, Biogen, announced in March 2019 that it was halting two large studies of the drug, aducanumab, for treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease. In October 2019, Biogen was back in the news with the hope of getting FDA approval for their drug as additional analyses suggested it might have some effect at higher doses. Biogen claims its anti-amyloid drug, aducanumab, may slow cognitive decline in some patients experiencing the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s Disease.
Biogen, Merck & Co., Eli Lilly & Co., and others have spent great amounts of time and money working on anti-amyloid drugs. Neuroscientists, like Dr. Dale Bredesen, know the production of amyloid is a healthy protective response to insults in the brain. Why then are drug companies continuing down this rabbit hole? If amyloid plaque build up is a result of the disease, why not target one of the causes of the disease common to many – such as inflammation.
Today, we expect to visit our doctor, list our symptoms and leave the office knowing the drug(s) prescribed will get us back to normal. With dementia and Alzheimer’s, however, we’re expecting drugs to do the impossible. No pill or two could address the 36 or more known causes of Alzheimer’s. We know the typical ALZ drugs now being prescribed may work for awhile, but soon it seems those drugs may be doing more harm than good for the patient. It’s almost like taking antibiotics for a virus. The doctor knows antibiotics won’t kill viruses and their overuse could lead to antibiotics being ineffective. But, the patient just feels better knowing they have a drug in hand.
Rather than rely on the drug companies, we can take action now using Diet & Lifestyle Strategies to Improve Cognition. To combat a multi-factored foe like dementia/ALZ, effort is needed on our part. Also, we must have someone in our corner to make sure we are daily doing all that’s needed.
The worst thing we can do is to listen to those who say there is no hope and there are no ALZ survivors. That is simply FALSE. There are survivors and there is much we can do to prevent and reverse dementia and Alzheimer’s without pharmaceutical drugs. It all depends on us and the effort we put forth.
Our first action can be choosing a treatment to follow. Which treatment do you or your loved one deserve?
