The Role of Iron-Induced Fibrin in the Pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s Disease and the Protective Role of Magnesium

Abstract

Amyloid hypothesis of Alzheimer's disease (AD) has recently been challenged by the increasing evidence for the role of vascular and hemostatic components that impair oxygen delivery to the brain. One such component is fibrin clots, which, when they become resistant to thrombolysis, can cause chronic inflammation. It is not known, however, why some cerebral… (More)
