Biogen’s Experimental Alzheimer’s Drug shows encouraging results in Clinical Trial

A small-scale study unveiled that an experimental drug from Biogen Idec as a treatment for Alzheimer's disease has been able to significantly check cognitive decline. It has also been able to reduce brain-destroying plaque in patients with early and mild forms of the disease.

The study has given hope for an effective treatment for the disease, which affects 15 million people worldwide. It is predicted that if effective treatment is not available, the number will increase to 75 million by 2030.
