Cerebral Vessel Disease Appears Linked to Alzheimer’s Dementia, Researchers Report
Recent research published in The Lancet Neurology demonstrates that blood vessel changes such as arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis in the brain are linked to Alzheimer’s disease. The findings suggest that investigating the mechanisms behind how blood vessel disease might contribute to the development of dementia might enable the identification of patients at risk, offering early treatment interventions. Arteriosclerosis and atherosclerosis — two terms describing changes in blood vessels — are most often used when discussing cardiovascular disease. The former implies that blood vessels become thick and stiff, and the latter specifically suggests that the vessel dysfunction is
