Recently, Alzheimer plaques and central cores have been the subject of intensive study by several groups of investigators. During the past year Nikaido and associates (1971) succeeded in isolating small quantities of Alzheimer plaques and cores for biochemical analysis. Progress thus far indicates that there may be a slight increase in mucopolysaccharides, glycogen, and hexuronic acids in Alzheimer cortex. Presumably these changes reflect an abnormal collection of neurofibrillar and microtubular structures referable both to neurons and glia (Terry 1963; Terry, Gonatas, and Weiss 1964; Wisniewski, Terry, and Hirano 1970).
