Vitamin E combined with some anti-inflammatory drugs could slow the decline of mental and physical abilities in people with Alzheimer's disease over the long-term. In the study, patients taking both after three years showed a modest slowing of decline with Alzheimer's.

The research was sponsored by the National Institutes of Health and Investigators are calling for more studies to assess the long term risks versus benefits.
