    Here's another angle on the same story :

    "Because scientists involved in the Roadmap project have been depositing their findings in a public database as they went along, other researchers have been analyzing the information before the map was formally published.

    One of the resulting studies show, for instance, that brain cells from people who died with Alzheimer's disease had epigenetic changes in DNA involved in immune response.

    Alzheimer's has never been seen as an immune-system disorder, so the discovery opens up another possible avenue to understand and treat it."
