Because Down syndrome (DS) is associated with amyloid β (Aβ) deposition, we characterized imaging measurements of regional fibrillar Aβ burden, cerebral metabolic rate for glucose (rCMRgl), gray matter volumes (rGMVs), and age associations in 5 DS with dementia (DS/AD+), 12 DS without dementia (DS/AD−), and 9 normal controls (NCs). There Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

The discovery and development of new treatments for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) requires a profound mechanistic understanding of the disease. Here, we propose a model-driven approach supporting the systematic identification of putative disease mechanisms. Read & Research Alzheimer’s More

Much of our knowledge about amyloid β (Aβ) aggregation and toxicity has been acquired using synthetic peptides and mouse models, whereas less attention has been paid to soluble proteins present in human brain. Here we report that aqueous extracts of AD brain can contain at least four different Aβ assembly Read & Research Alzheimer’s More
