IEET Audience Certain About a Cure for Dementia Soon


Posted: Apr 21, 2013

When we asked “Do you think that there will be a cure for Alzheimers and other dementias by 2030?” only 8% of the 109 of you who responded were pessimistic.

The most popular avenue for a cure was “stem cells and neurogenesis” which got the nod from a third of you. A quarter of you saw nanomedicine as possible method for curing dementia, and another quarter look to gene therapy.
