COMMENT

As a little bit of a background, Alzheimer’s is a chronic neurodegenerative disease that is characterized by loss of memory and behavioral changes.

The underlying cause of it is the destruction of connections between neurons, which ultimately lead to their death.

It is not a normal part of aging as it gradually decreases bodily, intellectual and communicative function.

There is currently no cure that will stop or reverse the effects of this disease, but according to Science Translation Medicine journal this might change sooner than expected!

1. Two Types of Lesions Lead to Alzheimer’s

An individual suffering from this disease usually develops the condition because of two types of lesions: amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles.

Amyloid plaques result from an accumulation of proteins clumping together between neurons to form plaques while neurofibrillary tangles develop from defective tau proteins inside the brain that clump up into a thick mass, causing tiny filaments that are responsible for molecular transportation inside the cells become twisted.
