Is Too Much Iron in the Brain Causing Alzheimer's?
Iron accumulation in the brain is emerging as a key player in neurodegeneration that may lead to Alzheimer's disease.
An imbalance of iron (Fe) in the body can lead to ferroptosis, a programmed cell death pathway known to play a role in neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s
Alzheimer’s patients typically have elevated iron levels in the brain
In areas of the brain where amyloid beta plaques tend to accumulate, an increase in iron redox was revealed…
