The scholarly study was co-authored by PhD students, Celine Ullrich and Michael Pirchl, from the same Laboratory. Nearly all Alzheimer’s disease instances are sporadic , and only <2.5 percent possess a genetic disposition. It is estimated that in 2050, around 80 million people are affected from Alzheimer's disease worldwide. The major pathological hallmarks of Alzheimer's disease are extracellular aggregates of the small peptide beta-amyloid, hyperphosphorylation of the protein tau and subsequent formation of intracellular neurofibrillary tangles, degeneration of neurons secreting the neurotransmitter acetylcholine, inflammation, and cerebrovascular dysfunction.By using nanotechnology-based photosensitizer delivery systems, the project will set the stage for improved control of the treatment and more comfort for cancer patients.
