By now, most people are familiar with early onset dementia and the fact that it’s incurable and has little to no treatment options available. If you’ve ever had a loved one who had dementia, you know how devastating the disorder can be. If you haven’t, thank your lucky stars.
Early onset dementia is, no doubt, a tough disorder on the afflicted person and those around them. Researchers have been feverishly working to understand more about it in hopes of finding something to combat the disorder.
That’s why this discovery from researchers at Trinity College Dublin is so exciting – it’s an important breakthrough that can lead the charge to some effective treatment. It’s important not to put the cart before the horse on this one, but the research is undoubtedly a significant advance in scientists’ understanding of early onset dementia.
