We note that Perucho et al.  cite (reference number 28) a 2007 publication by Pravat K Mandal , and we wish to point out to the authors and your readers that the Biochemistry paper in question was retracted later that same year , as was another article by Mandal , because “the anesthetic concentration of our paper[s] was misrepresented”. Those papers should therefore not be cited as evidence.

In a recent issue of Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease, Zhang and colleagues presented interesting data concerning the cholinergic deficit in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) . These results demonstrated decreases in the activity of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and reduced mRNA levels of α4 and β2 nicotinic acetylcholine receptor (nAChR) subunits in peripheral blood of patients with AD in an elderly Chinese population.

To the Editors, Like many with an interest in the field of Alzheimer’s disease I was intrigued to read the recent paper in JAD which purported to report the ‘scientific productivity and impact of the top 100 investigators in the field’ . As an outsider to the study of ‘scientometrics’ it appeared a thorough piece of work though there were few indications as to its actual aims.

A very interesting article by Arendash et al. (1) was published in the January 2010 issue of Journal of Alzheimer’s Disease. The results suggested that exposure to radiofrequency (RF) radiation similar to that emitted by mobile phones may provide cognitive benefits both in normal mice and in a transgenic mouse model of Alzheimer’s disease (AD).
