Plaques of Alzheimer’s Disease May Originate from Lyme Disease Spirochete
February 8, 2016 –
Hypothesizing a truly revolutionary notion that rounded cystic forms of Borrelia burgdorferi
are the root cause of the rounded structures called plaques in the Alzheimer brain. Rounded ‘‘plaques’ in high density in brain tissue are emblematic of Alzheimer’s disease (AD). Plaques may be conceptualized as rounded ‘‘pock mark-like’’ areas of brain tissue injury. In this century, in brain tissue of AD, plaques are Amyloid Plaques according to the most up to date textbooks. In the last century, however, Dr. Alois Alzheimer did not require amyloid as the pathogenesis for either the
disease or for the origin of its plaques.
