An experimental program designed to treat Alzheimer's patients actually reversed memory loss in some study participants, according to recently published results of a small clinical trial by UCLA and Marin's Buck Institute on Aging. Researchers called the results encouraging, but require further trials. We'll talk about that study and other recent developments in Alzheimer's research.
