Dear Vincent,

Near the end of TWiV 517, there was a mention of HSV-1 and Alzheimer’s (AD). You expressed a disagreement with a news headline referring to a mounting evidence for an HSV-1 involvement in AD. As you know, I work on antivirals and the recent 2 papers published in Neuron last July (discussed on TWiV 505) sparked several discussions among my colleagues about the possible role of herpesvirus infection in AD and whether antiherpetics could fit into the picture.

I really enjoyed your (second) conversation with Anne Simon on TWiV 512.

Regarding public perception of transgenic crops, it is worth noting that Bayer acquired Monsanto this year. Low commodity prices have been driving consolidation in the industry (see also ChemChina-Syngenta and DuPont-Dow). It should be interesting to see if the disappearance of the name “Monsanto” affects perception at all...

Dear Twivniks,

Re TWiV 505, here’s a thought on potential mechanisms for involvement of virus immunity in Alzheimer’s disease. I’m sure I read somewhere the notion that the capacity of cells to dispose of protein aggregates, misfolded or otherwise, could be a factor in progressive cellular damage...
