AbstractAs the worldwide population ages, the prevalence of Alzheimer's disease (AD) increases. However, the results of promising medications have been unsatisfactory.

I'm begging everyone to not be cruel because my situation is quite laughable right now but I'm desperately looking for hope. I've graduated my university with just above a 2.00 GPA for both cumulative and science. I took the bulk of my science courses (about 2 semesters worth) during the midst of a severe mental decline, that skated on suicidal more than once.

Still at the top of his game at 69 years old, Daryl has won legions of new fans with his hit MTV Live show Live From Daryl's House. In February of 2015, at my very sickest from chronic Lyme and Bartonella, after it was missed b...
