Maladie d’Alzheimer : un rôle protecteur des dégénérescences neurofibrillaires ?

​Les larges agrégats de protéines Tau observés dans les neurones des personnes atteintes de la maladie d’Alzheimer sont considérés comme étant au moins partiellement à l’origine de la maladie. Une étude conduite par des chercheurs de MIRCen (Institut de biologie François Jacob/CEA, NeurATRIS) suggère au contraire que ces dégénérescences neurofibrillaires (DNF) joueraient un rôle protecteur. 


Plasma Amyloid is modulated by age and seasonal rhythms in mouse lemur primates

Accumulation of amyloid-β (Aβ) peptides in the brain is a critical early event in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD), the most common age-related neurodegenerative disorder. There is increasing interest in measuring levels of plasma Aβ since this could help in diagnosis of brain pathology. However, the value of plasma Aβ in such a diagnosis is still controversial and factors modulating its levels are still poorly understood.

Call for collaborative projects

NeurATRIS launches a call aimed at fostering collaborative projects between NeurATRIS members and scientific community (academic and clinical laboratories and biotech companies) involved in neurodegenerative disease projects with a grant up to 50 000 € for the successful applicants.

Academic research laboratories and biotechs are welcome to apply. Applicant consortia may include a private partner, but only academics and biotechs will be eligible for funding.
