Stanford University is in phase-II trials for a drug that takes a new approach to fighting Alzheimer's. which affects 5.3 million people in the U.S. - including about 22,000 Granite Staters.

Instead of eliminating plaques in the brain, this new drug strengthens cells' protection against neurological attacks. It's said to improve memory loss, confusion, and loss of language.

By 2050 it's projected 16-million American's will have Alzheimer's.

The study was recently published in The Journal of Clinical Investigation.
