Experimental Probe Clears Neurons of Toxic Protein Involved with Alzheimer’s Disease

MGH researchers part of team that developed the tool that will help reveal more about tau protein.

A molecular probe used in imaging tests for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other diseases related to the protein tau has been modified to actually help clear out the toxic protein from brain cells. Researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute teamed up to alter the probe, which is normally used in positron […]
