4. Alzheimer and Stress

How do microglial cells and stress interfere with Alzheimer? Beta amyloid deposits are one characteristic feature in AD. They activate microglia cells which could become a chronic source of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and increase the NADPH oxidase activity, an essential component of microglia-mediated Abeta neurotoxicity.
