mory formation in animal studies.  Recent pivotal papers from other research laboratories indicate that tau oligomers may be involved in disease transmission. Therefore, neutralizing extracellular tau holds promise both for improving cognitive function and for interrupting disease progression in Alzheimer's."  

ABOUT ALZHEIMER'S DISEASE
Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of dementia, is increasing worldwide due to demographic shifts in the aging population.  Hallmark abnormalities for Alzheimer's disease are deposits of the protein fragment beta-amyloid (plaques) and twisted strands of the protein tau (tangles) as well as evidence of nerve cell damage and brain death.

The Alzheimer's Association estimates there are 5.4 million Alzheimer's disease sufferers in the U.S.  It is the most costly disease today with more than $215 billion in annual costs and growing rapidly to greater than $1.1 trillion by 2050.  There are no FDA-approved therapeutics that alter the course of the disease or slow its progression.  The recent findings that tau oligomers are involved in the spread of pathology in disease progression validates extracellular tau oligomers.
