Aluminum may mediate Alzheimer's disease through liver toxicity, with aberrant hepatic synthesis of ceruloplasmin and ATPase7B, the resultant excess free copper causing brain oxidation, beta-amyloid aggregation and Alzheimer disease.

Aluminum may cause hepatotoxicity with subsequent aberrant synthesis of proteins mediating copper homeostasis, such as ceruloplasmin and ATPase7B with resultant excess free copper, resulting in brain oxidation, protein degradation and beta-amyloid aggregation, all features of Alzheimer disease. Correcting hepatotoxicity might enable prevention or treatment of Alzheimer disease.
