TERRY PRATCHETT, CALL YOUR DOCTOR.

Swedish researchers report the successful trial of a vaccine that helps individuals develop protective antibodies that can prevent progression of Alzheimer’s disease.”

I don’t know if it would work in Prachett’s case, but… dammit, I lost Ray Bradbury this week. Enough said.

  • Jebus. Really? Floyd and now Pratchett? You’re damned lucky you’re married (congrats, Mrs.). I’d completely be stalking you if you were single. I’ll satisfy myself with the knowledge that there must be other men with similar interests out there!

    If it works, the vaccine will halt the progression of the disease. Which is a Good Thing, don’t get me wrong. But what we need in addition is something that will regenerate brain cells, as was done for the recovering Alzheimer’s patient in Vernor Vinge’s Rainbows End.
