Young blood donors can help reduce Alzheimer's in elderly
A new study says that injecting young blood into the elderly may help reduce the symptoms of dementia.
The researchers have found that pumping of blood from young donors to elderly participants with mild to moderate Alzheimer's disease can help in improving their health.
The participants were able to do basic daily activities independently such as remembering to take medicines, paying bills and preparing own meals.
The participants and their caregivers completed tests and questionnaires to understand their mood and mental and physical abilities before and after the treatment.
Alzheimer's disease is a long-term disorder that destroys memory and other important mental functions.
