Would early detection and treatment suffice, if it does not necessarily work after onset of substantial symptoms? Specifically, if a reliable early detection methodology arises, would you consider early-detected cases to be part of your total set from which you measure 75%?

Does this have to be for all forms of Alzheimer's, regardless of cause? Broad efficacy in 80% of cases? What is the bar?

@EdwardKmett Edited the question. For all forms. At least 75% of cases
