Alzheimer’s Amyloid Gets Immune System Trim

Immune cells in the brain have a trigger, and when it is pulled, it prompts immune cells to degrade toxic β-amyloid (Aβ) proteins. This new finding, from Sanford Burnham Prebys Medical Research Institute (SBP), helps explain why a faulty trigger appears to raise the risk of Alzheimer’s disease. Increasing the genetic expression of the trigger—a way of pulling the trigger more often—could p...
