David Cameron pledges new drive on Alzheimer’s research – and hopes to cure dementia by 2025

David Cameron is set to announce a drive to develop new drugs to slow down the onset of Alzheimer’s Disease – or even find a cure by 2025.

His commitment follows warning from experts that research has made little progress in identifying treatment for dementia, which afflicts increasing numbers of people as the population ages.

He will argue that immediate action is needed to address a market failure on dementia research, which is running one fifth of the level of spending on cancer research.
