    rarely recognize their immediate surroundings. The Alzheimer’s Disease Education & Referral Center (ADEAR), a Service of the National Institute on Aging, states, “AD is an irreversible, progressive brain disease characterized by the development of amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles, the loss of connections between nerve cells in the brain, and the death of these nerves cells”(Alzheimer’s Disease Genetics Fact Sheet, 2008). This terrible disease hinders an individual’s capacity to perform

    is the greatest factor in developing Alzheimer’s with around 7% people over the age of 65 and 17% over the age of 80 suffering from some form of Dementia. In normal rains the amyloid precursor protein (APP) is broke sown to produce a smaller molecule called  amyloid protein 40. However in people with Alzheimer’s  amyloid protein 42 is made and forms plaques between neurons which cause problems in communication between neurons. This causes confusion and memory loss. According the Selkoe (2000) the

    brain that results in loss of normal brain structure and function. In an AD brain, normal brain tissue is slowly replaced by structures called plaques and neurofibrillary tangles. The plaques represent a naturally occurring sticky protein called beta amyloid and in an Alzheimer’s brain, sufferer’s tend to accumulate too much of this protein. Neurofibrillary tangles represent collapsed tau proteins which, in a normal brain along with microtubules, form a skeleton that maintains the shape of the nerve

    all contain an antiparallel β-pleated sheet configuration thus resulting to their amyloidogenic properties and unique reaction (the production of a green birefringence under polarized light) when stained with Congo red. All types of amyloid are comprised of a serum amyloid P component, a 25-kD glycoprotein, and a member of the C-reactive-protein-containing pentraxin family. Amyloidosis may be classified into diverse groups of local and systemic diseases with primary amyloidosis as the most widely occurring

    modifications and these tend to be rare. One example of this that is classified as a conformational disease is amyloidosis. Amyloidosis is classified as a conformation disease because it occurs in humans when substances called amyloid proteins build up in a person’s organs. This amyloid is an abnormal protein that is typically produced by cells in a person’s bone marrow. This abnormal protein can then be deposited in any tissue or organ (WebMD, 2012). Because this protein can accumulate in many organs
