Toxic protein could explain Alzheimer's and lead to breakthroughs

Abstract:
Researchers at Northwestern University have discovered for the first time in humans the presence of a toxic protein that they believe to be responsible for the devastating memory loss found in individuals suffering from Alzheimer's disease. (William L.) Klein also is working with researchers at Northwestern's Institute for Nanotechnology on clinical diagnostics capable of detecting ADDLs in blood or cerebral spinal fluid. "Now that ADDLs have been discovered in humans we would like to develop effective diagnostics and that means employing nanotechnology."
