    A small drug trial showed a halt in progression of Alzheimer's after treatment with intravenous immunoglobulin (IVIg). If I remember correctly, immunoglobulin has been proposed as a treatment for ME by people like Jonathan Kerr.

    "The four participants originally given the highest dose and kept on that dose for three years showed no decline in cognition."

    Trial involving 16 patients excites scientists by suggesting treatment prevented deterioration of memory and cognitive skills
