I don't know much about the papers in the UK, but this article really gives me a lot of hope. I remember my grandfather's battle with the disease was incredibly hard on the whole family. My wife's grandmother is developing dementia, and I can see it degenerating into Alzheimers. With the more geographically distant family support and her loneliness since her husband died, I am especially worried about her. With all the respect in the world, I think she'd be an ideal candidate for this therapy as I don't think she would be all too disappointed even if the drug ended up killing her. Edit: I couldn't find the link to the Evening Standard, so that part of my post is irrelevant. I found other stories that corroborate the possibilities of that original story. Either way - this could be huge, and I hope it leads to significant progress.
