“We are confident that our findings offer the possibility to stop or prevent the disease's destruction of nerve cells and the formation of deposits,” Probiodrug co-founder Hans-Ulrich Demuth told the paper.

The company has taken out more than 27 patents to protect their work on the Alzheimer's drug.
