Levels of IL-1β are markedly elevated in AD and it is possible that a related mechanism also contributes to apoptosis in this disease. 55 Treatment of neurons with this agent results in caspase-3 dependent PCD (Troy et al, in preparation). We know that caspase-3 inhibition does not protect from acute Aβ toxicity, suggesting Aβ-induced increases in HNE do not occur on the time scale of the culture experiments or that sufficient HNE levels are not reached. While we do not know precisely how these data fit into the pathogenesis of AD, a hypothetical model of the ‘Natural history of Alzheimer’s disease’ can provide a framework for the testing of ideas and can suggest targets for therapeutic intervention.
