Bexarotene and Alzheimer’s – A New Hope?

I know that this generally has nothing to do with Christianity, but it is a fear of mine, personally, to end up with this. But… is there hope that a cure has been found?

Studies of the anticancer drug bexarotene have shown that, in mice, the drug quickly reverses the physiological, cognitive, and memory deficits which are characteristic of Alzheimer’s. More than half of the amyloid beta plaques associated with Alzheimer’s were cleared from the brain within hours, and normal behavioral patterns which had been blocked by the plaques were restored within 72 hours.
