An Alzheimer's Vaccine in a Nasal Spray
American Friends of Tel Aviv University ^ | February 28, 2011 | Unknown

TAU researchers develop a vaccine that staves off stroke as well

One in eight Americans will fall prey to Alzheimer's disease at some point in their life, current statistics say. Because Alzheimer's is associated with vascular damage in the brain, many of them will succumb through a painful and potentially fatal stroke.

But researchers led by Dr. Dan Frenkel of Tel Aviv University's Department of Neurobiology at the George S. Wise Faculty of Life Sciences are working on a nasally-delivered 2-in-1 vaccine that promises to protect against both Alzheimer's and stroke. The new vaccine repairs vascular damage in the brain by rounding up "troops" from the body's own immune system.

And in addition to its prophylactic effect, it can work even when Alzheimer's symptoms are already present. The research on this new technology was recently accepted for publication in the journal Neurobiology of Aging.

Funny how all the really good pharma research is going on in Israel of late.

The FDA says that since this is from Israel it can not be sharia compliant and will not be approved. /S>

It is also effective against the gay gene.

Inspired by the American medical profession’s methodology for dealing with down’s syndrome and other birth defects, these drops will simply eliminate anyone whose disease cannot be treated effectively.

Produce it as a white powder and then tell everyone it’s cocaine and you eliiminate the upcoming Alzheimer’s epidemic with the Boomers.

In the Scriptures, God promises that the Jewish people will be “a blessing to all the nations.” At the time He said that, it must have seemed inconceivable that a tiny band of shepherds and tribesmen could somehow spread through the world and bring blessings everywhere. But the promise has come true. The Jews have brought blessing in every field of endeavour, but especially in medical research like this. Thank you, Tel Aviv University.

I wonder what percentage of nursing home patients today are there because of Alzheimer’s and Dementia. My mother is in one with Dementia, and my guess is that 80% of the patients in the already full facility do have one of the forms of Alzheimer’s. I can only imagine how crowded they will be when the larger part of bell-curve of the baby-boomers start showing up.

Early-onset Alzheimer’s has been known to develop between ages 30 and 40, but that’s very uncommon. It is more common to see someone in his or her 50s who has the disease.

I’ve read that there is a strong link between herpes virus and Alzheimers. If true, the numbers will explode.

how can they prevent something when they don’t even know what causes it?
