Researchers have identified an association between faster rates of increase of TREM2 levels in soluble cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and slower progression of several markers of disease evolution in participants of the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network (DIAN), which they say points to a likely protective effect of TREM2 during the early pathogenesis of Alzheimer’s disease.
