“Experts are cautious because the drug, Aducanumab, is still in the early stages of development.But a study in Nature has shown it is safe and hinted that it halts memory decline.Larger studies are now under way to fully evaluate the drug’s effects.The build-up of amyloid in the brain has been a treatment target for many years.”
See Alzheimer’s drug study gives ‘tantalising’ resultsAfter Trump’s disgusting performances yesterday, it’s wonderful to have some good news. A new medicine has shown good results against Alzheimer’s disease, a terrible killer that slowly tortures individuals and their families. Stopping the disease or preventing it would indeed make the world a better place. The victims are usually elderly but it also takes many who would otherwise have decades of the good life among us. It’s likely the leading killer of folks who avoid/survive cancer or heart-disease.

My MissionMy observations and opinions about IT are based on 40 years of use in science and technology and lately, in education. I like IT that is fast, cost-effective and reliable. My first use of GNU/Linux in 2001 was so remarkably better than what I had been using, I feel it is important work to share GNU/Linux with the world. Now that I'm retired I still use GNU/Linux on every computer in my home except the smartphones which run Android/Linux.
Lately, I've been giving lots of thought to the world I inherited and which I will leave to my descendants. I'm planting grass, trees, flowers and vegetables in my large lot and I've ordered a Solo EV. I plan to charge my Solo by means of a tracking solar array. Life is good if you have a purpose. I do.
