He told The Telegraph: "There are many different pieces of the puzzle that come together. We have all this genetic knowledge, like cancer researchers that 30 years ago, and now we are investing in understanding and exploiting it."

An injection targets harmful proteins that accumulate in the brain.

The prediction comes after "notable" trials involving protein learning in children with a rare disease.
