However, neurons with early (especially stage 1) tangles frequently revealed cytoplasmic reactivity in the pericaryon and dendrites with a monoclonal antibody against a phosphorylated epitope of neurofilaments (SMI 31). That seems to point to a more complex disorder of the cytoskeleton from which the conditions for production of NFT as a not strictly specific type of neuronal reaction originate. In summary the results of our examination of Alzheimer NFT indicate that pathologically phosphorylated tau epitopes appear at the earliest stages of NFT formation.

The first step is to decide whether the patient is really demented: delirium, focal neurological deficit and pseudodementia due to depression or schizophrenia has to be excluded (Marsden, 1985). , 1990).
