  1. [I would like to note] that back in [August] 2000, we published a paper in Neurobiology of Disease (Refolo et al., 2000) demonstrating for the first time that cholesterol metabolism accelerates β-amyloid accumulation in a transgenic mouse model of AD. We show that diet-induced hypercholesterolemia alters APP processing in a manner giving rise to more A-β. What Beyreuther did was in cell lines. Our work used one of the best animals models for AD available.
