There is an experimental Alzheimer's drug which has a chemical cousin
to nicotine. Dont know the details.

I am astounded that such cases are decided by juries: its a conflict of
interest. The jury sees pitiful cases of disabled fill-in-the-blank, and
they must at some time realize that if this big deep pockets company
pays the bill, then it wont be paid even indirectly by their taxes. Clear
case of conflict of interest. Such cases should be decided by a group
of European scientists. spike
