doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different
result' has been questioned, its relevance to the pursuit of a
single drug approach to the treatment of Alzheimer's disease is
unquestionable. Sanity now prevails with Dr. Bredesen's challenge
to the status quo that may well bring an end to Alzheimer's
--David Perlmutter, MD, from the foreword
