I John, 

My consultant has informed me that currently there is still no cure for Lewy bodies dementia.  I was diagnosed last April. 

I hope your friend is being looked after well, it's not an easy thing to live with or care for.

There's been some good results with a chemotherapy drug but it was a small trial and the drug is very expensive, so any treatment is still a long way of, diagnosed a year ago myself
