Researchers discover a mechanism that reduces blood vessels in Alzheimer’s patients

Researchers at the Biomedicine Institute of Seville (IBiS) have discovered a new mechanism of Alzheimer’s disease that disorganizes the blood vessels around amyloid plaques, one of the characteristic features of the disease. The study, published in the international journal Nature Communications, was led by the laboratory of Dr. Alberto Pascual, from the Neuronal Maintenance Mechanisms Group at IBiS and was chiefly carried out by María Isabel Álvarez Vergara and Alicia E. Rosales-Nieves.
