Clinical Trials For frontotemporal dementia To Start By 2013

A neurodegenerative disease, frontotemporal dementia starts with silence and damages personality traits and then affects the brain. It gets very late for doctors to address the problem and till the time they get to know about, a person suffering from it, is left with very less time.

The disease was first discovered some 100 years back, but then also researchers have not been able to find probable reasons as well as treatment of the problem. It has also been found those maximum survival years of person after diagnosis of disease is not more than eight years.

However, researchers at the University of California have identified drugs that can treat the rare neurodegenerative problem. It is said that the study researchers are going to initiate clinical trials for the same by 2013.

Dr. Bruce L. Miller, who is a Professor of neurology and psychiatry in University of California, said that it is high time that researchers should know that there are different subtypes of dementia. "I think at least some subtypes of frontotemporal dementia will be the first neurodegenerative diseases we find a cure for", said Miller.

Miller further said that there are chances that the development helps understanding Alzheimer's disease in a better way.
