Alzheimer's disease is associated with the accumulation of Aβ (amyloid β)-peptides in the brain. Besides their cytotoxic effect on neurons, Aβ-peptides are thought to be responsible for the atherothrombotic complications associated with Alzheimer's disease, which are collectively known as cerebrovascular
