In this issue of Science Signaling, Donner et al. define a highly interesting role for platelets in mediating the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease via a mechanism linked to integrin aIIbb3 outside-in signaling and adenosine diphosphate release. These findings raise the intriguing prospect of harnessing antiplatelet drugs for disrupting the nexus between Ab-induced activated platelets and Ab fibril and aggregate formation.
