Default Memantine

I have been going on about this for the past few weeks and probably been driving people mad. I think my mum may get on the trial next year according to the dr at St Georges.

Any how, check out this link....

I hope you can get your mum on the trial. It looks like Memantine is going to help a fair amount. Although some people say it had no effect and some say it has helped heaps, I guess that's what a trial is for.

What's this trial then Wayne?

Colette maybe you could get hubs on it.

Tc, Matt.

I hope to find out more about the trials when I go with my mum in January. I am not sure when the memantine trial start but I imagine it will be at some point in 2010 as per the article.

I think it will be posted on the euro-hd website.
