Granted this is of course a press-release and prone to a certain kind of hype.
I'm short on time so haven't read the paper yet but this comment I definitely agree with. The news last night (C4) opened with "scientists in America have Alzhiemer's breakthrough!" they went on for ages before they even bothered to mention it was in a mouse. Then they interviews people with Alzhiemer's and talked about how their lives are etc which I can't condone at all. All they've done is get people's hopes up for something which only has potential at the moment (how many times have we cured various diseases in mice only for it to not work in humans?)
