Diabetes Drug Offers Hope to Alzheimer's Patients


By Molly Clifton


A diabetes drug may help people who suffer from Alzheimer's disease.

That's according to a study in the journal of Neuroscience.

Researchers in texas tested the insulin drug "rosiglitazone" on mice with Alzheimer's.

They found it reduced the affect of Alzheimer's on a key brain-signaling molecule, which improved memory and learning.

Clinical trials on people are getting underway.
