(Source: University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey) - New research demonstrates how dying or damaged brain cells release debris into the bloodstream and give rise to auto-antibodies that appear to be reliable biomarkers for early diagnosis of Alzheimer's and other neurodegenerative diseases.

The researchers also identify a key mechanism in the development of Alzheimer's that mirrors a process that is common in such auto-immune disorders as rheumatoid arthritis.
