Has anyone heard about this? A team at Case Western Reserve university used the drug Bexarotene and cured mice of AD. It's a very exciting study. They are in the midst of a Human trial right now and next there will be a larger trial performed by the NIH. Since Bexarotene is an approved drugs in humans for Skin Cancer it's on the market and Doctors can prescribe it as an "off-label" drug. Meaning prescribing it for a disease that it hasn't been tested for.
Basically you have to search for a doctor who will take a LARGE RISK and prescribe for you. It puts them at risk legally. VERY LUCKILY we have a doctor who is doing it for my Mom. We will be getting the drug from Canada since it isn't covered by insurance (since it's "off-label) and it will be very expensive here in America. However you can get it over an on-line pharmacy from Canada at a reduced price.
Keep in mind that this study was done in MICE ONLY. There is no proof right now that it cures humans.. or what it does at all in humans. However in my opinion when your loved one is disappearing you try anything.
