ALZHEIMER'S: MY JOURNEY TO A NEXT GENERATION TREATMENT is the true story of the discovery and potential waste of a powerful advanced treatment for Alzheimer's dementia. This gut-wrenching adventure is an expose of how a major new hope for Alzheimer's disease may be lost forever. A weekend experiment with a bizarre chemical out of an old lab freezer by the author as a graduate student leads to the discovery that methanesulfonyl fluoride (MSF) could revolutionize Alzheimer's treatment. The author struggles alone to build a primitive lab and bring MSF, a simple and inexpensive drug, to the Alzheimer's community. This forty-year odyssey of overcoming some self-inflicted setbacks, bumbling university administrators, and incompetent patent attorneys, eventually takes the author to Argentina and Mexico to find a way to prove that MSF can relieve the suffering of Alzheimer's patients. This story, sprinkled with ambition, torment, and humor, will give readers a unique insight into how scientists work, the desperation of Alzheimer's patients, and the strength of the human spirit. It also contrasts the warmth of human kindness and the support of colleagues with the cruel reality of how the survival of an innovative next generation treatment can be threatened simply because it was born out of the wedlock of Big Money and Big Pharma.
