Human amyloid-beta acts as natural antibiotic in the brain: Alzheimer's-associated amyloid plaques may trap microbes

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2016/05/160525161351.htm

"amyloid-beta protein -- which is deposited in the form of beta-amyloid plaques in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease -- is a normal part of the innate immune system, the body's first-line defense against infection"

Oh man.
All the black-and-white or good-vs-bad polarity thinkers must be getting sea sick with all this news.

How will doctors explain it when someday they discover something similar about cholesterol?
I can see the headline now: "Breaking news: 'Bad Cholesterol", LDL, is found to be a normal part of the innate immune system, the body's first-line defense against infection." (note: this is not a real headline, just my imagined headline that may actually be real some day in the future.)

You sell more newspapers if things are billed as a conflict, right?

Life is a lot more like a network of factors all in tension I think. :D

So why do these Amyloid peptides cannot erradicate infection ? Are there some other antimicrobial peptides supressed ?

Great question,

Not sure but just thinking aloud;

The immune system is compromised(the normal immune chain is broken somewhere down the line, and the amyloid is not the best response but the best the compromised immune can muster at the time.)?

In light of this wondering did anyone read the paper / have any thoughts on the amyloid response reported in sarcoid?( I know when I saw this Amyloid sarc paper & remembered the AD one I thought seems likely part of normal/reactive immune response).

So again wondering could `their` Amyloid sarc paper also be an indicator(backup) for active infection?
