Researches for the company, CORTEXYME have established profound evidence linking the oral bacteria, P. gingivalis, with the pathogenesis (development) of Alzheimer's. They are working on therapies that have a direct affect on the bacteria once they are found in the brain. Please follow the link and read this interesting article:
