Even as potential Alzheimer’s drugs failed, researchers with fresh approaches struggled to get funded and to get studies published in top journals.

It was an “unorthodox hypothesis” that might “fill flagrant knowledge gaps,” wrote one reviewer, but another said the planned work might add little “to what is currently known.” A third complained that although Moir wanted to study whether microbes might be involved in causing Alzheimer’s, no one had proved that was the case.

This is an extremely gripping, well written article about a disease that has touched us all, and the labors of scientists who fail for often trivial choices by not always reliable judges to get the kind of support needed to execute their theories in the lab.

I believe the big turnaround in medicine on this topic of cause, to be the extraordinary discovery about ulcers, long thought to be purely psychological, that turned out to be bacterial. It would appear that a similar dynamic is at play with Alzheimer's, turning the present mode of research on its ear.

Since politics has been hijacked by the drama queens, I like to bring these articles here where politics reigns, to contrast the dramas with the real stuff, and the real people who pull it off.

What a difference, eh?
