It seems the Alzheimers society cannot comment on a situation which would help
suffers, I have found this forum which has a medical trial on Aspirin
(Salicylate) dated 2015!
Its title is Aspirin cures Alzheimers!
The Society still says there is NO treatment for Alzheimers and NO cure
for Alzheimers, despite these results showing exactly the opposite!
I have just contacted the Alzheimers helpdesk on 0300 222 1122, and they refused
to commit on a comment about the news in the Metro today about a drug which might provide some benefit to Alzheimers patients. There is also nothing about the research on the Website.
As you both know my wife is in the last stages of Alzhemiers, so this is disappointing as she does not have the years to wait for even more clinical tests.
As far as I can see there is no restriction on prescribing one Aspirin Tablet a day,as it has already passed its drug tests for safety and is recommended for heart patients to be taken daily to improve their well being.
I have had to ask my doctor whether she will authorise the prescription on the basis that it can do no harm and might benefit Cornelia’s condition before she dies.
Report in 2018
It might aid people in my wife’s situation to get it tried out, before people DIE of the disease with NO intervention.
I say again it requires NO CLINICAL TRIAL to give a known, tested drug
for another purpose (i.e.. saving life) as it would have no other
impact on the patient (already proven).
