Chronically Active Innate Immune System Seen as Likely Cause of Dementia in Alzheimer’s Patients
Chronic activation of the innate immune system is the main cause of a range of symptoms common to different neurodegenerative diseases, namely dementia, which is often associated with Alzheimer’s disease, researchers at the University of Adelaide reported. Their study, titled “The Enemy within: Innate Surveillance-Mediated Cell Death, the Common Mechanism of Neurodegenerative Disease,” was published in Frontiers in Neuroscience. Neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and Huntington’s, are all characterized by the selective death of neurons in the central nervous system. Evidence has
