Blood Test to Detect Alzheimer’s Disease before Symptoms Appear
One of the main problems in treating the Alzheimer’s disease is that it is always diagnosed at a relatively late stage as the symptoms may develop over the many years.
In a recent study, published in the journal EMBO Molecular Medicine, researchers wanted to understand whether measuring the relative levels of healthy and pathological amyloid-beta in the blood could identify Alzheimer’s disease at its early stages.
The initial phase of the study demonstrated promising results – in participants who showed subtle early symptoms of the Alzheimer’s disease, the test detected changes in levels of amyloid-beta that associated with abnormal deposits visualized using brain scans.
A small study, conducted by the researchers from Washington University School of Medicine, suggests that a new MRI brain scan can be more efficient in determining the patient’s risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease than common clinical tests, long before the disease...
