Abstract

Plaques, tangles and amyloid are characteristic of Alzheimer's Disease. Study of the composition and origin of these proteins will be of value in determining the etiology and pathogenesis of AD if they are causally related to the neural damage, but of uncertain usefulness if they are merely secondary epiphenomena.
