Working Towards a Vaccine

Last week, it was announced that a research group believes they have found a way to stimulate the brain to work against the build up of amyloid beta proteins in the brain.  Another group announced that they believe that Abeta42, a form of amyloid beta made of 42 amino acids, is the form of amyloid beta which is causing the clumps.  A third group announced last month that they believe the apoE4 protein is the protein which should be focused on to slow down Alzheimer's.

One day, all this research into Alzheimer's and an effective treatment may result in a way to prevent or at least slow the disease.
