How Alzheimer's could keep cancer at bay: Brain-clogging plaques found in dormant cells spark hopes of treatments to keep them in remission



Scientists have discovered dormant cancer cells have Alzheimer's disease - sparking hopes of new treatments to keep patients in remission. 
The abnormal protein that helps tumours to grow are stored as amyloid bodies - which causes dementia - in inactive cancer cells.
Once these start to break up the cancer become active again - causing the tumours to spread.
But experts say the finding may lead to new treatments by keeping cancer cells dormant.
Amyloid bodies are known to play a role in the development of neurological diseases but their link to cancer have been largely unknown.
