AAIC 2017 | The role of inflammation in FTD

The protein progranulin has been associated with familial frontotemporal dementia (FTD), an inherited form of the disorder. Progranulin has also been linked with regulation of the inflammatory pathway. Ione Woollacott, MD, MRCP from the Institute of Neurology, University College London, London, UK speaks to us about her PhD project, which focuses on examining the presence of inflammatory markers in familial FTD patients, and the role of chronic neuroinflammation in the disease. This interview was recorded at the 2017 Alzheimer’s Association International Conference (AAIC) held in London, UK.
