New brain death pathway in Alzheimer’s disease
Neuroscientists have identified a new way for brain cells to become fated to die during Alzheimer’s diseases. The research team has found the first evidence that the activation of a biological pathway called necroptosis, which causes neuronal loss, is closely linked with Alzheimer’s severity, cognitive decline and extreme loss of tissue and brain weight that are all advanced hallmarks of the disease.
