Could namenda (memantine) stop the progression of alzheimer's disease?

In brief: Helps somewhat

Does not really stop progression, merely slows the deterioration somewhat and helps some of the associated issues such as agitation.
But in combination with a cholinesterase inhibitor, may truly be very useful.
