  • Objective: To determine the relation of neuritic plaques (NPs) and neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs) to the development and evolution of Alzheimer disease (AD). Methods: An autopsy series of 102 patients with dementia and pathologically confirmed AD and 29 normal control subjects (NCs) was studied. AD cases were stratified according to their last Mini-Mental State Examination (MMSE) before death as mild, moderate, severe, or very severe. NPs and NFTs were enumerated in the midfrontal (MF… CONTINUE READING
