A blood test to diagnose Alzheimer's disease moved closer to reality this week after new findings were announced at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference on July 29, 2020. The test showed extremely high accuracy—around 90% – for detecting chemicals in the blood that are specific for Alzheimer's.
Scientists led by a team in China have identified 10 risk factors for Alzheimer's disease. The 10 factors are diabetes, poor BMI, reduced education, high blood pressure in midlife, low blood pressure, head trauma, high levels of homocysteine, less cognitive activity, stress, and depression. Researchers published the findings today (Monday 20 July) in the Journal of Neurology, Neurosurgery & Psychiatry.
Researchers at McGill University and the Douglas Mental Health University Institute, in collaboration with the StoP-AD Center, have published a new paper in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, examining how a known genetic risk factor for late-onset Alzheimer's disease (AD) influences memory and brain function in cognitively intact older adults with a family history of AD.
A team of researchers affiliated with multiple institutions across the U.S. has found that older people who have heightened levels of apolipoprotein E in their high-density lipoprotein (HDL) appear to be at lower risk of developing dementia. In their paper published in JAMA Network Open, the group describes their study of the blood of volunteers who participated in the Ginkgo Evaluation of Memory Study (GEMS) and what they found.
A new study published in the Journal of Physiology has shown that misfolded protein build-up in the gut could contribute to the development of Alzheimer's-like symptoms in mice. This could suggest a new treatment approach for Alzheimer's disease that would target the gut before symptoms of cognitive deficits appear in patients.
Geriatrics is the field of health care focused on care for older adults. Experts suggest that our current geriatrics workforce needs better preparation to care for the 5.7 million people living with dementia in this country. To help meet this challenge, the Institute of Medicine has called for enhancing educational and training programs for improving the competence of the workforce, and to ensure that our workforce reaches the level needed to serve the growing population of older adults with dementia.
Diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, the most common type of dementia, is complicated by its overlapping signs with normal ageing. A collaborative research by City University of Hong Kong (CityU) and Johns Hopkins University has developed a new non-invasive molecular imaging approach based on magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to dynamically measure glucose level changes in the brain lymphatic system. Their discovery may help in identifying Alzheimer's disease at early stages so that treatments can start as soon as possible.
