There was a very interesting special on PBS tonight about Alzheimer's disease. Can any one reccomend alzheimer drug manufacturers to look at for investment???


You might take a look at some of the posts on the Elan Corp. discussion board (ELN), particularly the one which steers you to a recent Morgan Stanley report.

I bought Elan several years ago, based on their work with a proposed vaccine for Alzheimer's. Their clinical trials were stopped because of adverse effects on some of the subjects, but there may be some breaking news coming up about the vaccine's effects on the subjects who weren't made ill.

I think your interest in Alzheimers drugs is well founded-- any company who can come up with a successful treatment for this scourge is bound to make a fortune!
