Brain Aluminum Distribution in Alzheimer's Disease and Experimental Neurofibrillary Degeneration

Neurofibrillary degeneration is an important pathological finding in senile and presenile dementia of the Alzheimer type. Experimentally, aluminum induces neurofibrillary degeneration in neurons of higher mammals.

 Aluminum concentrations approaching those used experimentally have been found in some regions of the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease.Neurofibrillary degeneration is an important pathological finding in senile and presenile dementia of the Alzheimer type.
