Tauopathies overview

Tauopathies are a group of neurodegenerative disorders characterized by the aggregation of tau protein into neurofibrillary or gliofibrillary tangles in the human brain. Tau protein normally stabilizes microtubules, which are essential for intracellular transport and communication. However, when tau becomes hyperphosphorylated or misfolded, it dissociates from microtubules and forms insoluble aggregates that impair neuronal function and survival. Tauopathies can present with various clinical phenotypes, such as cognitive impairment, behavioral changes, dementia, parkinsonism, and language disorders. Tauopathies can be classified based on the predominant tau isoforms that are present in the inclusions (3R, 4R or equal 3R:4R ratio). Tau biomarkers in cerebrospinal fluid and blood, as well as imaging techniques, can help in the diagnosis and evaluation of tauopathies. Currently, there is no effective treatment for tauopathies, but several tau-targeted therapies are in development.
