Lecembie, approved by the FDA in 2023, is one such drug. Another promising area involves tau-targeting therapies, addressing abnormal tau protein tangles. Additionally, researchers explore anti-inflammatory drugs, lifestyle interventions, and repurposed medications for potential cognitive benefits. Clinical trials assess the efficacy of these treatments, emphasizing early detection and personalized medicine
