In an analogy to the evolution of concepts in the ‘amyloid cascade hypothesis’, which proposes that soluble oligomers — rather than insoluble aggregates of amyloid peptides — are the causative agents of neurodegeneration in AD, recent studies have suggested tau oligomers to be the toxic species, and indeed levels of SDS-stable tau oligomers are increased in AD and PSP brains.
