Israeli doctors have declared victory over Alzheimer's disease, Amoranta writes, referring to a daily newspaper Haaretz. It reported about successful completion of pre-clinical trials of a new drug that had proved 99% healing of this previously incurable form of dementia.

According to the report, the drug completely stops all the degenerative changes in a brain.

"All the symptoms of the disease were removed in experimental mice, which showed the same cognitive results as their relatives from the control group. Scientists didn’t reveal the course of the experiment before it ended, because a lot of labs in this or that part of the world had declared success in the fight against Alzheimer's disease, but in fact these were just desirable results," the newspaper writes.

The results of the experiment were announced just after they had been confirmed and checked.

The reporters say that scientists are now preparing the next stage of the drug’s testing. It will be available to patients in the nearest future.
