WASHINGTON (WKOW) --The U.S. government has unveiled a detailed plan to combat Alzheimer's disease.
The Department of Health and Human Services says it hopes to find effective ways to treat the mind-destroying disease by 2025.
The plan involves two major clinical trials. One involves a insulin nasal spray for treating the disease. The second is a drug to try to stop symptoms in people at the highest risk for Alzheimer's.
Officials also started a website so people can get more information about the disease. Click here to visit the site.
