Now i looked at it and understand it to be a monoclonal antibody and i do now remember it - its approved, now lets see if the removal of beta-amyloid is beneficial in maintaining or restoring cognition - there is another protein that is deeply involved called Tao and this MAB does not "sponge" it up so at best its half the equation at this point, but as tao tangles together as strands of protein it begins killing brain cells and thats where the real damage happens - when we look at CTE brains what we are witnessing is an accelerated form of alzheimers, in the end their brains are full of holes too. But its a start so lets get some more data.
