From a regular of 1 paper in all of the previous 3 Symposiums, the explosive curiosity in cerebral amyloidosis has resulted in the presentation of 12 papers in this topic within the current quantity. The genetically predisposed familial amyloidotic procedures, comparable to the polyneuropathies and familial Mediterranean fever have additionally motivated ex­ tensive and interesting investigations that have published the amazing influence of a unmarried amino acid substitution in remodeling a typical protein into. a deadly "amyloidogenic" one.

Intermediates between these two extremes are common. The gel filtration pattern of amyloid fibrils dissolved in strong denaturing agents differed between the two variants [6]. A double AA peak was typical of cases with the vascular pattern. The present study shows that each of the two patterns of amyloid deposition is characterized by certain protein AA species, which can be distinguished between their isoelectric points. Some peculiar properties of the fibrils and of protein AA in vascular amylOidosis are also shown.
