Inflammatory Conditions Linked to Higher Risk of Alzheimer’s

Patients with inflammatory diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis or psoriasis have a higher risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease, which can be reduced by treatment with tumor necrosis factor (TNF) inhibitors.

Alzheimer’s progression involves inflammatory changes in the brain, which are thought to be driven, at least in part, by the overproduction of pro-inflammatory molecules like TNF.
