Alzheimerova bolest

Alzheimer’s disease

Is a progressive degenerative brain disease and the most common form of dementia. At the moment, we don’t know what causes Alzheimer’s disease. We know that people with this disease have abnormal protein that accumulates in the brain. These ‘tangled’ proteins (made up of the tau protein) and ‘plaques’ (made up of amyloid beta protein) interrupt communication between brain cells and lead to eventual cell death and brain shrinkage.
