'Game changing' blood test could help predict Alzheimer's

Dec 01, 2020 12:45 IST

According to a new study published in the journal Nature Aging, scientists from Britain and Sweden have developed a blood test that could help predict Alzheimer's disease. The test is based on protein molecules in the blood which contribute to neuronal damage. Scientists have developed models which predict the risk of cognitive decline in people. While the blood test requires more research, it is a transformative step in the early diagnosis of the disease.
