Low serum albumin and its association with beta-amyloid deposition

Takeaway

  • Low serum albumin was associated with increased beta-amyloid protein deposition in the human brain.

Why this matters

    Cerebral beta-amyloid protein (Aβ) deposition is a pathologic hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and identifying factors influencing Aβ deposition could inform strategies that prevent development of the disease.
