Richard G. Petty, MD

Alzheimer’s Disease

To commemorate the hundredth anniversary of the first description of Alzheimer’s disease, there’s a very good review article by John Hodges from the University of Cambridge in the November issue of the journal Brain, which was published this morning.

I first met John when we were both teenagers, and even then his writing was a model of clarity. This new article is excellent, and if you have any interest at all in Alzheimer’s disease, I would urge you to read it. The journal has kindly made the entire article available for free through a grant from the British Medical Research Council.

The most important point of the paper is that our understanding of this devastating illness is progressing by leaps and bounds.Yes, there is still a lot that we don’t know, but some ingenious research is opening up a good many new avenues for prevention and treatment.
