Naturally Occurring Antibodies to Tau Exists in Human Blood and Are Not Changed in Alzheimer's Disease
Naturally Occurring Antibodies to Tau Exists in Human Blood and Are Not Changed in Alzheimer's Disease: AbstractHyperphosphorylated tau is an important pathological agent in Alzheimer's disease (AD). Tau effluxes from the brain to the blood could potentially stimulate the production of naturally occurring antibodies (NAbs). We aimed to investigate whether NAbs to tau (NAbs-tau) was generated in human blood and to figure out the alteration of plasma NAbs-tau level in AD patients. About 192 AD patients...
