Human Study Suggests Brain Tissue Inflammation Is Key to Alzheimer’s Disease Progression

A University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine-led team has, for the first time, shown in living patients that neuroinflammation—activation of the brain’s resident microglial immune cells—is not merely a consequence of Alzheimer’s disease progression; rather, it is a key upstream mechanism that is a requisite for disease development. The findings indicate that targeting neuroinflammation might be beneficial for people with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease.
