In July 2022, a bombshell dropped on the Alzheimer's disease research field. For years, researchers had searched for something that caused the disease’s telltale amyloid plaques — complex tangles of a protein called amyloid-beta (Aβ) frequently found in the brains of patients with neurodegenerative disorders. A series of studies published starting in the mid-2000s reported the discovery of a toxic form of Aβ in the brains of mouse models of Alzheimer's disease called Aβ*56. Researchers hoped that Aβ*56 was the protein that snowballed into those amyloid plaques. But a team of sleuths found that many of the papers describing Aβ*56 were fraudulent and contained an array of faked images and blots. The fraud seemed to call the entire idea of amyloids causing Alzheimer’s disease into question.
