We identified rare coding variants associated with Alzheimer's disease in a three-stage case–control study of 85,133 subjects.

A perfused human blood–brain barrier on-a-chip for high-throughput assessment of barrier function and antibody transport

Receptor-mediated transcytosis is one of the major routes for drug delivery of large molecules into the brain. The aim of this study was to develop a novel model of the human blood–brain barrier (BBB) in a high-through-put microfluidic device. This model can be used to assess passage of large biopharmaceuticals, such as therapeutic antibodies, across the BBB.

Blood-derived integration-free iPS cell line UKBi011-A from a diagnosed male Alzheimer's disease patient with APOE ɛ4/ɛ4 genotype

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is most the frequent neurodegenerative disease, and the APOE ε4 allele is the most prominent risk factor for late-onset AD. Here, we present an iPSC line generated from peripheral blood cells of a male AD patient employing Sendai virus vectors encoding the transcription factors OCT4, SOX2, KLF4 and c-MYC. The characterized iPSC line expresses typical human pluripotency markers and shows differentiation into all three germ layers, complete reprogramming vector clearance, a normal SNP genotype and maintenance of the APOE ε4/ε4 allele.

Circulating metabolites and general cognitive ability and dementia: Evidence from 11 cohort studies

Identifying circulating metabolites that are associated with cognition and dementia may improve our understanding of the pathogenesis of dementia and provide crucial readouts for preventive and therapeutic interventions.

ADAPTED 1st Press Release

To boost the development of new medicines for Alzheimer's disease (AD), a major new European-wide project has now been launched to investigate an area of AD research which has previously received little attention. The ADAPTED (Alzheimer's Disease Apolipoprotein Pathology for Treatment Elucidation and Development) project focusses on the APOE gene which is well known as a risk factor for developing the disease, but precisely how this gene contributes to the risk of developing AD is not known.
