So far, lab tests already point to four possible drugs that could work. They're very, very early tests, not human trials, but just the possibility is amazing. Bring it on, docs, bring it on!

Cool news, but their use of "preventative" in the headline just cost me a few brain cells.

Yes, please. Lost a good friend to this terrible disease, which in his case was early onset Alzheimer's – just as he and his wife were getting ready to enjoy his early retirement.

I think it's everyone's greatest nightmare, let's hope we see a real breakthrough in its treatment soon.

Incidentally, for Terry Pratchett fans, he's quoted this week as saying that his condition is "moving so slowly, it's possible that I'll die of something else before it gets me". Not for some time, I hope.

My greatest hope is that this is the proverbial "tip of the iceberg" for finding at least a preventative solution, and at most, a cure. This is coming from someone who's Mom was affected by Alzheimer's.
