This article reviews the field of amyloid-beta immunotherapy for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
Researchers at the University of Cambridge (UK) have uncovered new information about the mechanism underlying the build up of amyloid plaques within the brains of Alzheimer’s disease patients.
Comparison of brain amyloid levels with spinal fluid amyloid may provide a new way of identifying early signs of Alzheimer’s disease.
Preclinical study highlights potential role of amyloid-beta in fighting brain infections.
We delve in to one of the most talked about journal articles of last month, discussing key findings and take-home implications.
Researchers demonstrate that amyloid precursor proteins may lead to endosome enlargement, contributing to early Alzheimer’s disease pathologies.
New research indicates that positron emission tomography (PET) scans could be used to identify tau within the brain and may help in developing effective staged disease therapeutics.
Analysis of PET scans has helped to identify a potential explanation for the association between traumatic brain injury and dementia later in life.
Both neurofibrillary tangles and amyloid plaques have been observed in a novel animal model for the first time through exposure to an environmental toxin.
