Polish claim ewes milk helps Alzheimers
EWES milk could help treat Alzheimers disease, according to Polish scientists.
Now ReGen Therapeutics, which is backing the new Polish treatment, is seeking £2.5m City funding.
Polish researchers claim that ReGens Colostrinin, derived from the nutrient-rich colostrum produced by ewes, can enable sufferers to recover.
But one consultancy, PharmaVentures, claims that the clinical studies, although scientifically valid, are not of the standard required by European or American authorities.
