How to detect Alzheimer's?
New hope for the geriatrics and all the world to be free from the dreadful disease- Alzheimer's. Prof. Federoff and his team found out a new blood test which helps to detect and predict whether a healthy person may develop Alzheimer's
within 3 years with 90% accuracy. It helps the patient, family and also the health care team to reduce the attack of the disease and to adjust with the situation as well.
Researchers explains how they identified the test and validated it based on the basis of the study published in 'Nature medicine'. Howard J. Federoff, the Study leader and professor of neurology Department at Georgetown University Medical Center in Washington, DC, says : "Our novel blood test offers the potential to identify people at risk for progressive cognitive decline and can change how patients, their families and treating physicians plan for and manage the disorder."Alzheimer's
is a condition that gradually affect and kills the brain cells which leads to memory loss and mental decline. The rate of the progress of the disease increases dramatically year by year. According to WHO, World Health Organisation, the rate of Alzheimer's patient was 35 million people in 2010 and the number will be doubled every 20 years. Federoff explains that by the pre-detection of the disease helps to produce the drugs which slow or reverse the disease, which are failed presently because the drugs are tested in the last stage of the disease condition.
