    The results are quite exciting - a whole novel strategy for pharmacological intervention is showing signs of being realistic, with a number of possible applications. But whether or not it may be useful in treatment of Alzheimer's - nobody knows. Causes and mechanisms of the disease are poorly understood, and may have only superficial similarity with the prion model that is under investigation here.
    In this instance they were merely quoting the scientists involved in the experiment and some outside observers who used that terminology.

    To quote a few lines from the article:

    He told the BBC a cure for Alzheimer's was not imminent but: "I'm very excited, it's the first proof in any living animal that you can delay neurodegeneration."

    "Commenting on the research Prof Roger Morris, from King's College London, said: "This finding, I suspect, will be judged by history as a turning point in the search for medicines to control and prevent Alzheimer's Disease."


    BBC News - Discovery 'could hold key to Alzheimer's treatment'

    It's been an extraordinary week in science!
    That IS exciting, and.... Oops, forgot what I was going to say..... But this development is ...... Um, what was the thread about?

    *inserts partisan talk about how one party made this discovery possible and the other party is trying to deter the research.*

    But on a serious note this is a truly awful and sad disease to witness. Any movement towards a cure is a movement in the right direction. I have seen the effects of Alzheimer's and it breaks my heart. This is a positive step to wiping it out.

    My stepmother had Alzheimer's, and was staying with my brother Greg. When one of my other brothers, Steve, went to visit her, he knocked on the door, and she answered. She then yelled "Greg, there is some man here to see you".
