Morphometry of the cerebellum of 11 subjects who died in the severe, final stage of Alzheimer's disease (AD) and of five age-matched subjects without dementia revealed significant atrophy in the AD group, with a decrease in the volume of the molecular layer by 24% and of the granular layer by 22% in comparison with controls. The 32% decrease in the total(More)
The presenilin-1 (PS1) gene mutation (Pro117Leu), recently identified in a Polish family is characterized by the earliest reported onset (from 24-31 years) of Alzheimer disease (AD) and a very short duration of disease (4-6 years). The neuropathology of 2 subjects with this PS1 mutation (ages at death: 35 and 37 years) was compared to four Down syndrome(More)
Amyloid-beta (A beta) production, accumulation, and recycling were examined by light and electron microscopy in the pancreas of transgenic mice (from 45 days to 22 months of age) that express the gene for the carboxy-terminal fragment of the human amyloid-beta protein precursor. Ultrastructural immunocytochemistry revealed four types of cells accumulating(More)
