It didn't fail completely.we now know that this is probably not the methodology of treatment to pursue.we need more understanding of a-beta and its functionality,before we should try manipulating levels in the brain.advancement comes through trial and error,through striving for answers and decoding hidden truths.meanwhile understanding a person with alzheimers and relating to how they perceive the world is important.we must understand everything about this disease.I strive everyday to understand my mom and reach into her realm of being so that I keep my promise of sticking by her,no matter what.tonight we shared a great hug and I know she knows how much I love her-makes all of my daily struggles of caring for her well and striving for advancement in research worth it.when you truly love someone,you love them no matter what happens and even alzheimers doesn't Change that love.thanks carla danesi Glorias daughter "remember Gloria,Gloria lives"
