Brain, behavior, and immunity, 91, 128-141 (2020-09-22)
Immune dysfunction is implicated in Alzheimer's disease (AD), whereas systemic immune modulation may be neuroprotective. Our previous results have indicated immune challenge with Bacillus Calmette-Guerin attenuates AD pathology in animal models by boosting the systemic immune system. Similarly, independent studies...
