Despite the devastating impact, there are currently no known treatments to prevent, cure or delay the progression of Alzheimer’s. The five medications currently approved for Alzheimer’s by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration act by either increasing the presence and activity of a key neurotransmitter, acetylcholine, or by regulating glutamate, a chemical messenger involved in learning and memory. These medications may temporarily reduce symptoms for some patients, but they do not change the underlying course of the disease. On average, the five approved Alzheimer's drugs are effective for about six to 12 months for about half of the individuals who take them.
