More Progress in Alzheimer's Research

Another important breakthrough in fundamental Alzheimer's research is reported at InfoAging. It's been known for a while that amyloid concentrations are associated with Alzheimer's symptoms, but researchers have now discovered exactly how these amyloids get into the brain. This opens up a whole new area of study into methods of blocking this transport mechanism, thereby alleviating or preventing Alzheimer's. Recent progress on a number of fronts in the fight against Alzheimer's is very promising; scientists seem to have reached that critical mass of data that leads to the first effective therapies.
