    What is interesting about this study is the possibility of early treatement in the future.

    "The finding does have immediate relevance to the effort to develop treatments for Alzheimer's disease, Gandy said. "It reinforces the idea that anti-amyloid medication is a rational strategy," he said.

    Sure this will hit the UK papers in the next few days. The painfully slow pace of research like this is upsetting. I remember reading similar discussions research a few years ago.

    Kind regards
