Alzheimer’s disease consortium identifies four new genes for Alzheimer’s disease risk
Date:4/3/2011

risk of developing Alzheimer's disease; this will be important as preventive measures become available. Identification of these risk genes will also help researchers to determine the disease-initiating steps that begin in the brain long before any symptoms of memory loss or intellectual decline are apparent. Eventually, it is hoped that researchers will be able to describe the events that lead to the destruction of large parts of the brain and, ultimately, complete loss of cognitive abilities.

Alzheimer's genetics researchers are currently joining forces for an even larger study. The Alzheimer's Association in the U.S. and the Fondation Plan Alzheimer in France have funded the formation of the International Genomics of Alzheimer's Project, whose members met for the first time in November 2010 in Paris.
