The finding paves the way for the identification of new therapeutic targets for many diseases.
Scientists at IRB Barcelona in collaboration with researchers at the University of Barcelona observe that aggregates of 20 to 100 units of beta-amyloid have a structure that is the most harmful to neurons.
This is the first time that a method allows scientists to monitor aggregation while simultaneously detect a structural pattern responsible for the toxicity of beta-amyloid aggregation.
The researchers state that these studies are a step towards finding a therapeutic target for a disease which, to date, has no treatment.
