New class of alzheimer's drugs

Knoxville (WVLT) - A new class of alzheimer's drugs may prevent long-term damage from traumatic brain injury.

The drugs, which have only been tested on mice, are designed to target toxic plaque that accumulates in the brains of alzheimer's patients.

Researchers report that people who've suffered a brain injury are four times more likely to develop alzheimer's disease.
