Alzheimer's disease is incurable, there is no vaccine for it. In the early stages, this disease leads to a deterioration in the memory and functional state of the body, and then causes progressive dementia. However, there are ways to reduce the risk of Alzheimer's disease, delay its onset and slow development for years or even decades.
