Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) is a progressive neurological disorder, characterized by amyloid-beta (Aβ) and neurofibrillary tangles (NFTs). Recently a new factor called neuroinflammation is added which can directly play a key role in the progression of AD. The recent studies in humans and mice had shown that aggregated protein (Aβ and NFTs) binds to the microglia cells (the resident innate immune cells) found in the central nervous system and activates the innate immune response which is characterized by the release of inflammatory mediators and increase the disease progression through the neuroinflammation. Several factors such as traumatic brain injury, obesity, etc. can play a major role in neuroinflammation. Hence targeting the immune mechanism and reduce the risk factors could lead to future promising therapeutics for AD.
