Hormone replacement therapy (HRT) may help prevent Alzheimer’s disease in millions of women at risk of developing the condition.

A team of researchers from the University of East Anglia (UEA) and the University of Edinburgh have found evidence of the “potential importance” of HRT in reducing the risk of Alzheimer’s disease in women carrying the APOE4 gene. The study was published in the Alzheimer’s Research & Therapy journal.

Although they stressed they could not say for sure that HRT cut the risk in women, the findings were “really important” amid limited drug options for dementia and an urgent need for novel treatments.
