Although amyloid β peptide (Aβ) is cleared from the brain to cerebrospinal fluid and the peripheral circulation, mechanisms for its removal from blood remain unresolved. Primates have uniquely evolved a highly effective peripheral clearance mechanism for pathogens, immune adherence, in which erythrocyte complement receptor 1 (CR1) plays a major role.

Comparing disease research in dementia and cancer provides ready similarities and contrasts, although one condition is generally thought of as tissue degeneration, and the other as tissue proliferation. Yet each disease can be devastating and fatal. Snyder et al. [1] provided a summary of the “Nexus” meeting, which explored those comparisons Read & Research Alzheimer’s More
