A Newly Identified Mechanism of Microglia in Alzheimer's Disease Opens Doors to New Treatment Targets


Scientists at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai uncovered a previously unrecognized role of microglia autophagy and senescence in Alzheimer’s disease pathology. The study, published in Nature Cell Biology, identified a novel mechanism that enables microglia to protect neurons against Alzheimer’s disease, potentially offering a promising target for future therapies.
