Be careful if you're talking about amyeloid plaques. They've known those were present for years. They don't actually know if they are the cause of neuronal death or another symptom of the real cause. It is far too soon to start talking about "cures". In addition, a cure applied to a patient who has lost a great deal of their cognitive abilities would be a rather mixed blessing. You stop the cell death and the disease doesn't go any further - but neither do they regain the lost memories. They linger in a seriously impaired state until something else proves fatal. Speaking for myself, I would not want such a cure. Past a certain point, for me, just let it kill me.

This is what I'm referring to:
