Alzheimer’s Immune Response Interactions Revealed

Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive form of dementia. When toxic proteins like beta-amyloid and tau accumulate in the brain, they form plaques and tangles. Researchers have been focusing on how brain plaque contributes to Alzheimer’s disease and what role they play in disease progression.

Recent studies have found that beta-amyloid has antiviral and antimicrobial properties, suggesting a potential link between the immune response against infections and the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
