    Understood. Even so -- wow.

    As someone whose mother-in-law suffered from Alzheimer's, and who is watching another family member in the early stages -- this is gonna be interesting. Let's keep our fingers crossed.

    Stunning advance if it turns out to be successful in humans.

    Like they said they have done it before on mice but from what I always read thats as far as the research goes.

    I used to work a shhort distance from Case Western, a lot of their medical students worked at the hospital I worked in for a time.

    More often than not these promising dicoveries end up being blind alleys, but there is always hope. Developing a truly effective effective (or at least much more effective than currently available) treatment for Alzheimer's would be wonderful.
