Living with Dementia

Amyloid Beta Precursor Protein

Road Block as a New Strategy for the Treatment of Alzheimer’s

Blocking a transport pathway through the brain cells offers new prospects to prevent the development of Alzheimer’s. Wim Annaert and colleagues of VIB and K.U. Leuven discovered that two main agents involved in the inception of Alzheimer’s disease, the amyloid beta precursor protein (APP) and the beta secretase enzyme (BACE1), follow a different path… Road Block as a New Strategy for the Treatment of Alzheimer’s
