This whole supplement is obviously a must read for those wishing to learn more about AD from some of the major players in the field. A beta and tau continue to be emphasized as the constituents of the lesions described by Alzheimer. However, mounting evidence that neurons may die in AD without the formation of NFT suggest that an independent role of PCD in AD deserves significant consideration.
