Another Fatal Peptide from APP

Some of the attention focused on amyloid-β may have to be diverted to yet another peptide product of amyloid precursor protein (APP). Daniel Lu, Edward Koo and colleagues report in the April issue of Nature Medicine that...

Chlamydia Update

Researchers from the Medical University of Lubeck in Germany say that they have failed to replicate the tantalizing evidence from a study published two years ago that found <em>Chlamydia</em> in almost all the Alzheimer's brains examined...
