More Human-like Model of Alzheimer's Better Mirrors Tangles in the Brain
Penn Study Describing Improved Animal Model Sheds Light on Pathways of Alzheimer's and other Tauopathies
Tangled up brain fibrils made up of a rogue protein known as tau are the hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) that likely hold the key to treatments, making them of great interest to researchers. Mimicking the formation and spread of these tangles in animal models with greater accuracy allows scientists to better investigate new therapies to stop or slow their spread.More Research
