Counteracting the effects of TNF receptor-1 has therapeutic potential in Alzheimer’s disease
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia and increasing evidence has shown that neuroinflammation is an important and early hallmark of the pathogenesis. It has been suggested that tumor necrosis factor (TNF), a pro-inflammatory cytokine, might be detrimental in AD, though the results coming from clinical trials on anti-TNF inhibitors are inconclusive. Prof. Roosmarijn Vandenbroucke (VIB-UGent) reports in the authorative journal EMBO Molecular Medicine that TNF, via activation of its receptor TNFR1, is the main inflammatory upstream mediator of the AD-associated changes at the choroid plexus and that targeting TNF/TNFR1 signaling has therapeutic potential.
