This Sunday, July 8, 2012 file photo shows boxes of Gammagard, a treatement that is being tested for Alzheimer's disease, in the home of a patient in New York. For the first time, researchers are reporting that a treatment might help stabilize Alzheimer's disease for as much as three years, but the evidence is weak and only in four patients. Gammagard is a collection of antibodies from pooled blood donations given as infusions every two weeks. These antibodies may help clear the sticky plaque that clogs patients' brains. The results were discussed Tuesday, July 17, 2012 at an Alzheimer's conference in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig)
