Study suggests coordinated brain cell response to amyloid plaques in Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers led by Prof Bart De Strooper (UK DRI Director) and Dr Mark Fiers at the VIB-KU Leuven Center for Brain & Disease Research in Leuven, Belgium, have used pioneering technologies to investigate what happens in brain cells in the direct vicinity of protein plaques in Alzheimer’s disease. Using a mouse model of the condition and human brain tissue, the team’s findings suggest that brain cells work together to first provide a protective response that becomes damaging in the later stages of the disease. The results may help to determine the optimal window of opportunity to therapeutically intervene during disease progression.
