In this episode, we cover half of the papers published in February 2020 in Alzheimer's disease, which we sorted under the "Treatments' Development" section. This is a two-part episode, and here, we cover new approaches and drug development done in vitro, research improving or repurposing existing drugs, as well as non pharmacological approaches and other interventions.
