We are excited to see a new #Nature paper by Prof. David Holtzman research group, showing the critical role of the adaptive immune response in neurodegeneration. The authors show, using different immune interventions in mouse models of amyloid and tauopathy, how interactions between T cells and microglia can shape and control development of brain pathology. In this context, the authors tested anti-PD-1 administration as a therapeutic intervention and show decrease in tau-mediated neurodegeneration and brain pathology which was associated with increased recruitment of regulatory T cells to the brain. These findings are in line with our preclinical research, suggesting PD-1/PD-L1 immune checkpoint blockade as a therapeutic approach for neurodegenerative diseases.
