The incidence of Alzheimer's disease (AD) is greater in women than men at any age, as is the development of amyloid pathology in several transgenic mouse models of AD. Due to the involvement of metals in AD pathogenesis, variations between the sexes in metal metabolism may contribute to the sex difference in AD risk. In this study, we investigated sex differences in brain metal levels across the lifespan in mice of two different background strains, as well as in mice overexpressing the human… CONTINUE READING
