Three methods were compared to find a reliable method for demonstrating neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) and neuritic plaques (NPs) in brain tissue stored for long periods in formalin or as paraffin blocks. The short-term fixation of tissue, e.g. up to 6 months in formalin does not usually present a problem using any of the three methods tried, e.g. Gallyas, modified Palmgren, or modified Bielschowsky, but once the time lengthens to 6 years or more the demonstration of NFTs and NPs is not so… CONTINUE READING
