Research into new treatments

Learn about research into new drug treatments for Alzheimer's disease.

No new drugs have been licensed in the UK for Alzheimer’s disease since memantine in 2002. However, there is a lot of research into new drug treatments. These aim either to give people better relief from symptoms or – if possible – to slow down or stop the disease in the brain.
