Tweaking the immune response might be a key to combat neurodegeneration

Study suggests zebrafish might teach us how to tackle Alzheimer's disease: Patients with Alzheimer's or other neurodegenerative diseases progressively loose neurons yet cannot build new ones. However, modulating the immune response might help the human brain to better cope with such conditions and regenerate. The research group led by Caghan Kizil at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) in Dresden report on these findings in the journal Cell Reports. Their conclusions are based on studying zebrafish, an organism well-known for its ability to counteract neuronal damage by regenerating lost cells.
