Research suggests anti-inflammatory protein, interleukin 10, may trigger plaque in Alzheimer’s disease.


Inflammation has long been studied in Alzheimer’s, but in a counterintuitive finding, University of Florida researchers have uncovered the mechanism by which anti-inflammatory processes may trigger the disease.  This anti-inflammatory process might actually trigger the build-up of sticky clumps of protein that form plaques in the brain. These plaques block brain cells’ ability to communicate and are a well-known characteristic
