Brain inflammation may be friend, not foe, for Alzheimer's patients
...a great deal of evidence that inflammation plays a potentially
negative role in Alzheimer’s disease,” said O’Banion. “But much of the evidence comes from experiments with cells in a dish or postmortem human tissue, not from living organisms in which disease progression is closely monitored. “People have talke...
