Alpha 1-antichymotrypsin and IL-1 beta are not increased in CSF or serum in Alzheimer's disease.

Abstract

Chronic inflammation associated with the amyloid plaques may represent an acute phase response in the brain. We quantitated the levels of two inflammatory markers; alpha 1-antichymotrypsin (alpha 1-ACT) and interleukin 1 beta (IL-1 beta) in paired serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) samples from 40 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), 20 patients with… (More)
