Mouse vaccine that neutralizes one Alzheimer's protein also eliminates another
Abstract: If the sheriff knocks off Bonnie, Clyde might hightail it out of town. Similarly, getting rid of -amyloid plaques in Alzheimer's mice also clears out early-stage tau deposits, new research shows. However, late in the disease, tau switches into a form that resists this treatment. Despite the limitation, the results offer encouragement for human Alzheimer's vaccines and therapies.
