Living with Dementia

Abeta Plaque

Tau, not amyloid-beta, triggers neuronal death process in Alzheimer’s

New research points to malfunctioning tau, not amyloid-beta (Abeta) plaque, as the seminal event that spurs neuron death in disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease. The lead Georgetown neuroscientist investigating the work explains the finding and the potential of an already approved drug in mediating the problem at the annual meeting of the Society for… Tau, not amyloid-beta, triggers neuronal death process in Alzheimer’s
