London: Scientists have discovered a natural chemical cocktail that could slow or even prevent the devastating brain damage caused by Alzheimer`s disease.Potent flourene compounds disrupt the formation of toxic deposits in the brains of dementia victims.The deposits are destructive amyloid fibres, proteins that kill off nerves in the brain, leading to the symptoms of memory loss and confusion typical of Alzheimer`s.The breakthrough appears to suggest a way could be found to stop them from forming, leading to the incurable condition being effectively wiped out.Most drugs will not pass from the blood into the brain, but the flourene compounds will.
