Blood Vessel Damage Plays Key Role in Alzheimer's-related Dementia

For many years, scientists have known that degeneration of neurons — nerve cells that transmit signals to and from the brain — caused Alzheimer's dementia, an incurable disease afflicting more than 35 million people worldwide and approaching epidemic proportions. Now, a new study from Weill Cornell Medical College reveals that changes occurring in blood vessels also play a major role — by limiting the supply of oxygen and glucose to the brain and contributing to the neuronal damage causing the disease. ...
