87 Alzheimer's disease is a form of dementia marked by progressive intellectual deterioration without focal, motor, or sensory signs. 88 Definitive diagnosis of the disease is often difficult, since many other disorders and neurological deficits are also accompanied by cognitive loss; however, three characteristic histopathological structures are present in the brains of Alzheimer's patients: neurofibrillary tangles, neuritic plaques, and cerebrovascular plaques. Neuritic and cerebrovascular plaques are found in highest concentration in the hippocampus and the neocortex and result from a pathological deposition of a fragment of the recently discovered amyloid precursor protein(s) (APP).

Culture of these HGPRT-deficient cells in medium containing hypoxanthine, aminopterin, and thymidine (HAT medium), however, would kill them since they could not overcome inhibition of nucleotide synthesis by the aminopterin. Only hybrids formed by fusion of HGPRr cells with cells possessing a functional HGPRT gene would produce the enzyme and proliferate in HAT medium. If the HGPRT+ cells are likely to persist in culture for extended periods of time, a strategy to kill these cells as well would also have to be employed.
