Researchers have co-opted a molecular transport system to shuttle Aβ antibodies across the mouse blood-brain barrier. They predict the shuttle could smuggle a variety of drugs into the brain.
A combination of high clusterin and low Aβ42 in cerebrospinal fluid associates with early Alzheimer’s neurodegeneration, hinting at a mechanistic interaction between the proteins.
People with previous head injuries may be more prone to amyloid deposition and have a higher risk for Alzheimer's.
New data questions whether LRRK2’s kinase activity contributes to Parkinson’s, finding instead that absolute levels of the protein matter more.
Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis may be inherited more often than previously believed, prompting neurologists to rethink how they define familial versus sporadic disease.
