    It is interesting that this test might work. It gives us all hope, since as the researcher points out most treatments are now happening too late.

    With a test, better medicines can be developed. I hope it is time for all of us here. After watching dementia at work it is my greatest fear for the future.

    Time to raise some more cash for research?
