Abstract

Early indications that protein in blood from younger individuals can offer hope for people with Parkinson's and Alzheimer's are promising (5 January, p 6). I hope the proteins responsible are isolated quickly for clinical use. I fear that if they are not, limited stocks of young blood may promote young people being abducted as a source of blood for the old. Vampire devotees and authors of medical horror will have plenty of scope.
