Hoping for better luck in clinical trials than their Alzheimer’s colleagues had in the past decade, FTD researchers are now chasing biomarkers. It’s slim pickings so far, but neurofilament, tau PET, and MRI are showing promise.
By examining polymorphisms linked to autoimmune diseases, researchers pinned two loci to Alzheimer’s risk. Both may worsen neurofibrillary tangle pathology.
