US government sets out Alzheimer’s plan
The US government last week, set out how it planned to spend a $50-million top-up to this year’s funding for the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Maryland, announced in February as part of a bid to “prevent and effectively treat Alzheimer’s disease by 2025”. The projects are all based around human data and human trials with no additional funding being given to any animal work on Alzheimer’s. Scientists are currently preparing to conduct whole-genome and whole-exome studies to discover mutations that may predispose someone to the disease or protect against it.
