Science -- Stokin et al. 307 (5713): 1282:

We identified axonal defects in mouse models of Alzheimer's disease that preceded known disease-related pathology by more than a year; we observed similar axonal defects in the early stages of Alzheimer's disease in humans.
Evolution, helping cure Alzheimer's disease.
