The Roles of Inflammation and Immune Mechanisms in Alzheimer's Disease

Van Eldik, LJ, Carrillo, M, Cole, PE, Feuerbach, Dominik, Greenberg, BD, Hendrix, J, Kennedy, M, Kozauer, N, Mueller, R, Ransohoff, R, Wilcock, DM, Bain, L and Bales, K (2016) The Roles of Inflammation and Immune Mechanisms in Alzheimer's Disease. Alzheimers Dementia, 2 (2). pp. 99-100. ISSN


The Alzheimer's Association’s Research Roundtable met in April 2015 to explore the role of immune and inflammatory mechanisms in the progression of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). The ability of innate immune cells, such as microglia and astrocytes, to mediate neuroinflammation in AD has been implicated as a contributor to disease pathogenesis. Adaptive immunity also plays a role in responding to disease or injury in the central nervous system (CNS), while innate immunity appears to drive neuroinflammation. An increased understanding of these processes may lead to new therapeutic targets, animal models and biomarkers for AD. The barriers and challenges toward new treatments will be discussed.
