Dementia, which is characterized by decline of memory or other cognitive traits to the extent that a person’s daily functioning is affected, is one of the most important global health challenges of our time. Approximately 50 million

Cholesterol manipulation switches the production of “toxic Aβ” to “protective Aβ”

The amyloid hypothesis maintains that the pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is driven by the production and accumulation of amyloid-β (Aβ) peptides in the brain. Consequently, many therapeutic strategies to reduce Aβ production have been examined. However,
