Research gives hope for brain disease cure

Good news for world's 26 million Alzheimer's sufferers as study shows vitamin B may slow disease.



    At least 26 million people suffer the ravages of the mind-wasting disease known as Alzheimer's - a degeneration of the brain for which there is currently no cure.

    But now a new study is offering hope to those in the early stages.

    Researchers at Oxford University in the UK have discovered that high doses of vitamin B appear to slow - if not stop - the advance of the disease.

    Al Jazeera's Tarek Bazley has the details.
