[AlzPED] Dietary DHA supplementation in an APP/PS1 transgenic rat model of AD reduces behavioral and Aβ pathology and modulates Aβ oligomerization. [AlzPED] Systemic vaccination with anti-oligomeric monoclonal antibodies improves cognitive function by reducing Aβ deposition and tau pathology in 3xTg-AD mice. [AlzPED] Reductions in Aβ-derived neuroinflammation, with minocycline, restore cognition but do not significantly affect tau hyperphosphorylation [AlzPED] Low Concentrations of Anti-Abeta Antibodies Generated in Tg2576 Mice by DNA Epitope Vaccine Fused with 3C3d Molecular Adjuvant Do Not Affect AD Pathology [AlzPED] Reducing AD-like pathology in 3xTg-AD mouse model by DNA epitope vaccine - a novel immunotherapeutic strategy.
