Study Shows Overlap Between Possible Prion Transmission and Alzheimer’s…

January 27, 2016

But still no evidence that you can get ‘infected’ with Alzheimer’s disease in the way as the word ‘infected’ us most often used.

“Nothing is proven yet,” cautions Pierluigi Nicotera, head of the German Centre for Neurodegenerative Diseases in Bonn. He points out that amyloid-β has not been identified in the preparations that were transplanted in either the growth hormone or dura mater studies. Nor can researchers rule out the possibility that the underlying condition that led to the need for neurosurgery could have contributed to the observed amyloid pathology, as the authors of the latest paper note.

Expect to see people coming out the woodwork confused between transmission and infection.
