Living with Dementia

Synthetic Tau Fibrils

Tau Transmission Model Opens Doors for New Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Therapies

Injecting synthetic tau fibrils into animal models induces Alzheimer’s-like tau tangles and imitates the spread of tau pathology, according to research from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania being presented at the American Academy of Neurology’s 65th Annual Meeting in San Diego March 16-23, 2013.

This Alzheimer’s research, along… Tau Transmission Model Opens Doors for New Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s Therapies
