tauopathies

tauopathies

(taw-op'ă-thēz),
A group of neurodegenerative diseases characterized by accumulation of tau (τ) protein in the brain. Includes Alzheimer disease, Pick disease, corticobasal degeneration, and other related disorders.

"Wake-promoting neurons (WPNs) are extremely vulnerable to AD but not to 4 repeat tauopathies," the researchers wrote about their findings.
Axon Neuroscience SE, a global company involved in the development of tau-immunotherapies and diagnostics for Alzheimer's disease and other tauopathies, announced yesterday that it has named Michal Fresser as the new chief executive officer of Axon Group.
ACI-35.030 targets pathological Tau and is intended as a disease-modifying treatment for Alzheimer's disease (AD) and other Tauopathies.
ACI-35.030 targets pathological Tau and is intended as a disease-modifying treatment for Alzheimer's disease and other Tauopathies. By targeting specific pathological forms of Tau protein, immunization with anti-Tau vaccines has become an important strategy for the treatment of AD and other Tauopathies because it has the potential to prevent and reduce the development and spread of Tau pathology throughout the brain.
