Is an effective immune intervention for Alzheimer's disease in prospect?

Abstract:
Alzheimer's disease is characterized in part by abnormal deposits in the brain of the peptide beta amyloid (Abeta), in the form of plaques. Recent work with a transgenic model of Abeta deposition has uncovered a remarkable capacity of antibodies to prevent or clear these deposits. These experiments offer the attractive possibility, albeit some way in the future, of using antibodies as a therapy in Alzheimer's disease.
