Can a vaccine prevent neuroinflammation associated with the progression of Alzheimer's Disease?

New evidence from McGeer and McGeer [1] seems to suggest that chronic neuroinflammation (which might lead to a progression of Alzheimer's disease), can be prevented by a vaccine. The following paper therefore seems to be relevant for this "Alzheimer's disease revisited" forum: [1] McGreer, P.L. & McGreer, E. (2004). Immunotherapy for Alzheimer's Disease. Sci. Aging Knowl. Environ., Vol. 2004, Issue 27, pp. pe29, 7 July 2004 [DOI: 10.1126/sageke.2004.27.pe29]
