In the same way there are no effective treatments for dementia, there are also no effective drugs to prevent it either.

Associate Director of Research at Alzheimer’s Society Dr Richard Oakley said, despite its early stages, the study was a “game-changer for dementia research” and a “step towards effective and safe treatments”.

Edinburgh University’s Professor Tara Spires-Jones added: “This study adds to previous work which similarly showed stressing cells with cold instead of heat can protect them from misfolded proteins.

“But a drug which targets these mechanisms is likely to be many years away.”
