5:48 pm
protein that leads to the manufacturing of the plaque. that has never been identified and now the doctor has discovered those mechanisms of the pathways, which means that they were able to publish two huge papers, one explaining that pathway, but also explaining if you alter the pathway early in the game, you're able to change the production of this plaque and, therefore, you improve memory and they did this with animal studies. this is a huge discovery. all the scientists at rockefeller university that are working on this just -- they are fantastic. the foundation is really the mechanism behind supporting all this research. so, listen, we need to find a cure for alzheimer's. you need to support the right scientific research. if you think that this is
5:49 pm
