Abstract

Basic mechanisms explaining the role of immunological processes in the development of clinical symptoms of Alzheimer's disease are presented in the paper. The need for early detection of immunological defects in this disease was pointed out, since this allows to apply the appropriate immunocorrective treatment. Moreover, current approaches to immunomodulatory treatment in this disease are discussed.
