    Researchers hope dementia vaccine will be the breakthrough of the next decade



    A dementia vaccine — which is the brainchild of a South Australian academic — is on the cusp of starting human trials, with researchers hopeful it will be the "breakthrough of the next decade".

    Key points:
    • Professor Nikolai Petrovsky hopes human trials will start within the next two years
    • The vaccine is designed to be both preventative and therapeutic
    • Research is being led by the University of California and Institute for Molecular Medicine


    Flinders University Professor Nikolai Petrovsky said the team of researchers had completed successful testing on mice, which had been "genetically programmed to get dementia and Alzheimer's disease".

    "We were able to prevent the memory loss in the mice and obviously the next step is to take this into human clinical trials,"

    Dunno about the 'next step'.

    Why not bridge the gap and use fishlocker?

    Not really well written. It is a vaccine to treat/prevent one type of dementia. Admittedly Alzheimer's is the most common cause of dementia, but there are several other types with very different root causes.

    It's vaguely related ... could be that he's imaging he's a male nurse and giving instructions to his patient with dementia.

    Why not allow nature, and it's natural course, to be?

    Why is it that we require such false incisive initiatives to fix things that really don't need fixing?

    Because dementia is one of the most vile diseases, if not the most vile.

    Anyone who has any experience of a family member with dementia knows how horrific and soul destroying it is.

    Jeff is of course being a dick. There's a 'y' in the day.

    It can be argued though that if nature were allowed to take its course then there would be far fewer people around who suffer from dementia.

    They wouldn't be living long enough to get it.

    Let's hope there is something to it. Have heard similar before but never something came from it.
