LAS VEGAS -- An alarming statistic on a study done in Las Vegas shows most Alzheimer's drugs fail to work. The study was conducted by the Lou Ruvo Center for Brain Health.
The center found 244 drugs tested in the past decade failed to be effective. Only one has been approved for use. The failure rate of the drugs was 99.6 percent.
Nearly 44 million people, and 28,000 Nevadans, are living with Alzheimer's. The numbers are expected to increase as baby boomers age.
