Alzheimer's Memory Drug

Alzheimers is a tragic disease, but today there is an exciting new development.

University of California researchers have developed an experimental drug helpful in restoring memory.

The drug is called AMPAKINE CX-516. It has been shown to improve memory recall in healthy elderly people by 20%.

It works by improving the flow of information from one brain cell to another.

The National Institute of Health is going to test the drug soon on Alzheimers patients and I'm sure will get it to the public as rapidly as possible.
