Carmel, CA Egrifta Found To Help Memoryby Richard Kuehn on 08/13/12
A new study published in the Archives of Neurology found that Egrifta (a drug that spurs the release of human growth hormones) helps improve concentration, decision making skills and verbal memory in healthy older adults and those who have mild cognitive impairment. Conducted by the purveyor of the drug, Theratechnologies Inc., the study found that executive function improved 100% in those who participated in the study who took Egrifta than those who took a placebo. Verbal and memory improvements were 50% greater. I was very excited to hear this news as those with mild cognitive impairment are at extremely high risk of developing Alzheimer's disease. Regular readers of my blog know that I am a big supporter of the Alzheimer's Association, which has a 24-hour help line at 800-272-3900. They are also the largest private supporter of Alzheimer's research in the United States.
