World Alzheimer's Day 2008 Special Report: New Alzheimer Targets Take Center Stage
Date:9/24/2008

World Alzheimer's Day 2008 Special Report: New innovative treatment approaches in Alzheimer's disease which involve mechanisms other than a direct attack on amyloid plaques have emerged as the leading candidates in the fight against Alzheimer's in 2008.

These agents are all hypothesized to address non-amyloid targets, including the tau tangles found in the brain(Rember®).
