Alzheimer detected in blood test

An Alzheimers blood test still in the early stage of development could detect Alzheimers Disease as soon as 10 years before clinical diagnosis.

The test could spot which patients are more at risk so that treatment can begin earlier and could be a potential breakthrough for treatment and prevention researchers hope that their findings lead to breakthroughs in treatment methods.

The newest blood test to detect Alzheimer’s may be able to predict the disease 10 years before symptoms occur with 100% accuracy. Researchers from the National Institute on Aging are focusing on a protein in the brain called IRS-1 that may signal the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s
