The article in this issue by Hampel et al1 offers a
glimpse of an interesting chapter in the history of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) treatment research. An understanding
of the significance of this report, which touches
on issues ranging from the identification of novel targets
for treatment to widely differing approaches to trial design,
provides an appreciation of the rapid pace of treatment development
in the field and allows one to gain some insight
into an interesting historical sidebar.
Alzheimer’s disease is now the fourth leading cause of
death in people over age 65 years in the United States and
the only major cause of death that is increasing over time.
