Association between small-vessel disease, Alzheimer pathology studied -- ScienceDaily

Cerebral small-vessel disease and Alzheimer disease pathology appear to
be associated, new research indicates. "Our study supports the
hypothesis that the pathways of SVD and AD pathology are interconnected.
Small-vessel disease could provoke amyloid pathology while
AD-associated cerebral amyloid pathology may lead to auxiliary vascular
damage," researchers conclude.
