Cure for prevention of Alzheimer's disease?

There is a drug that is used for treating epilepsy that is showing signs of improving memory, which slows the risk of dementia due to Alzheimer's disease. A study was done on 84 subjects who were randomly given the drug in various quantities and a placebo. There were signs of improved memory in the subjects with a small dosage of the drug. Now the scientists are currently working on finding out if the drug can be used to permanently slow or stop Alzheimer's disease.
