abstract
In this research, we will focus on the possible relationship between the HDL lipoproteins (= High Density Lipoproteins), the known diagnostic parameters (Amyloid B peptide, Tau protein and fosfo-Tau protein) and the lipolytic LCAT (= Lecithin Cholesteryl Acyl Transferase) enzyme and PLPT (= Phospholipid Transfer Protein) transfer protein, and to reveal their specific role in neurodegerative diseases such as Alzheimer's desease
