New info about Alzheimers

Check this link, about a possible breakthrough

As I understand it, part of the reason we fold, is to help research scientists understand Alzheimers and other diseases caused by improper folding of proteins. We can only hope that someday we will no longer need a folding team here........until then, I will fold as much as I can.

Interesting, thanks for posting it. Unfortunately, it has hit many members of my family, a terrible thing.

We are all in danger of this disease. I don't know of anyone in my family who has had it but, does not mean I won't get it. The sooner we eliminate it, the better. :x

Thanks for posting the link; I'm glad to hear that they may be making progress understanding (and hopefully eventually treating) Alzheimers.

Unfortunately, several members of my family have had Alzheimers, so I, too, understand how terrible it is. That's one reason that I am running F@H on my computers.

It's great to hear that this whole thing is starting to put out, and work on diseases. IT'll be a better world without Alzheimers.
