NPR: Two common herpes viruses appear to play a role in Alzheimer's disease. The viruses, best known for causing a distinctive skin rash in young children, are abundant in brain tissue from people with Alzheimer's, a team of scientists reports Thursday in Neuron. The team also found evidence that the viruses can interact with brain cells in ways that could accelerate the disease. READ MORE

Bloomberg: Christophe Weber, the first foreign-born chief executive officer of Japan’s Takeda Pharmaceutical Co., last month inked a $62 billion takeover of rare-disease drugmaker Shire Plc. The deal will reshape the 237-year-old, Osaka-based company into a global powerhouse.

The difference is that, in De Hogeweyk, every resident is living with severe dementia and all the shops and businesses are staffed with caretakers and healthcare providers.
