Abstract

Anti-Aβ antibodies are being developed as potential treatments for Alzheimer's disease. Some have dose-limiting side effects and many do not robustly remove pre-existing amyloid plaques. In this issue of Neuron, DeMattos et al. (2012) demonstrate that an amyloid plaque-specific antibody removes existing Aβ aggregates without side effects.
