Is there a realistic prospect of finding an effective treatment for late stage dementia?

Given recent advances in our knowledge of the genome, is there a realistic prospect of finding an effective treatment for late stage dementia? Dementia is a devastating disease and its prevalence is increasing rapidly. Would it help if we invested more money in researching the disease, perhaps comparable to the amount we invest in cancer research?

  1. I am currently researching a treatment for the most common form of dementia, Alzheimer’s disease. I believe that we do need more money for research into dementia, especially since we are an ageing population. Our medical advancements are proloinging life and hence increasing the amount of people getting dementia.
    However it’s important to mention here that the vast amount of potential causes of dementia means that an effective treatment for one person may be ineffective for another. Therefore i think not only should research into dementia have more money to help toward finding treatments but more money should also be given to hospitals and care facilities to help look after the increasing amount of dementia sufferers.
