Hopeful news on the Alzheimer's front

Thought many of you in this forum (and others) would be interested in this hopeful, newly released data coming from a research study. Hopefully, the awareness that Pat Summitt's diagnosis and the subsequent "We Back Pat" campaign will help channel more financial assistance to research and development like this one. Is this the cure? From the sound of the article, mice can rejoice. Maybe one day the dollars raised by the Volunteer faithful will be responsible for all of mankind rejoicing.
