FENS 2018: Immune system offers new way of treating Alzheimer’s disease


Research presented at the FENS Forum of Neuroscience (7–11 July, Berlin, Germany) has demonstrated that boosting the immune system could offer a novel treatment modality for Alzheimer’s disease.

In recent years, researchers from the Weizmann Institute of Science (Rehovot, Israel) have highlighted that the immune system protects the brain against Alzheimer’s disease and other neurodegenerative disorders. Additionally, their research has shown that the choroid plexus acts as an interface of the blood–brain barrier and that communication between the immune system and the brain is shut off as we age.
