Alzheimer’s Disease :: Hypertension drugs reduce Alzheimer’s Disease risk

Hypertension drugs may reduce Alzheimer’s Disease risks, revealed in a report at the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology meeting.

“Conceptually, our studies suggest that people on treatment for hypertension might get a beneficial effect on beta-amyloid (accumulation in the brain),” according to Gulio Maria Pasinetti, M.D., Ph.D., of the Mount Sinai in New York.

Recently scientists have been looking into drugs already available for other conditions to see if they can also treat Alzheimer’s disease.
