Mayo makes Alzheimer’s discovery

By Kelley Luckstein

Researchers at Mayo Clinic Florida said Monday they have discovered that inflammation in the brain is not the trigger for Alzheimer’s disease as scientists had long thought…

 

“This is the opposite of what most people who study Alzheimer’s disease, including our research group, believed,” says the study’s lead investigator Pritam Das, an assistant professor in Mayo Clinic’s Department of Neuroscience.
