He may know this, perhaps not. Can't be sure you know?

Thanks vernes. We don't actually know whether Terry reads this site, so let's hope he gets to see the article.

With the amount of 'miracle' cures that are apparently around at the moment, one wonders how come this disease still exists... :)

Maybe the miracles suffer from Alzheimer too. "I know I should happen somewhere, but I have forgotten where".

Biotie Therapies is developing a promising candidate to Alzheimer's in Finland. See...

Phase one is starting quite soon. Roche is on the board also.

Might be interesting project to follow closely.

Everything from drug therapies to drum beating, macrobiotics, aromatherapy and pancakes is always a "promising" therapy. Hell, I could say that reading DW books is a 'promsing therapy for Alzheimer's.'

Promising until the point when 99% of these things are proven that they don't work.

Let me know when one of these actually passes legitimate scientific research trials that pass the strictest international peeer group reviews . I can then let my Alzheimer's afflicted family members know about it.

Until that time, all of these things are just speculation at best.

I didn't want to start yet another thread about 'cures' for Alzheimer's, but felt this latest scientific breakthrough (today's Daily Mirror) was worth a mention.

http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/top-storie ... -23036111/

It also links to an earlier article (21/03/2011) that might be of interest since it isn't trying to sell snake-oil. :D
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.
