Will everyone who has had a brain infection develop Alzheimer’s? It depends on the brain’s ability to clear out β-amyloid after they have killed microbes.

With AD patients representing a huge unmet medical need and experimental drugs failing in clinical trials, this infectious disease theory definitely needs serious attention.
