    J Alzheimers Dis 9:29-33. 2006
    ..This maturing hypothesis may serendipitously prove to have been a more essential byproduct of generating the voluminous data than all the publications from our laboratory that reflected endless hours of quantitative morphometry...

    Department of Pathology, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, OR, USA
    Alzheimers Dement 9:169-75. 2013
    ..For several decades, we have been amassing arguments showing that herpes simplex virus type 1 (HSV-1), not p-tau, propagates this interneuronal, transsynaptic pathologic cascade...

    Department of Ophthalmology, Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center, New Orleans, LA, USA
    Med Hypotheses 64:53-8. 2005
    ..Although the mechanism by which statins reduce AD risk is unknown, they reduce the amount of cholesterol in the plasma membrane and, thus, may decrease the availability of lipid raft pathways to spread HSV-1 within the brain...
