Research team identifies new Alzheimer's gene

... may eventually allow us to improve our ability to diagnose Alzheimer’s disease, even before it strikes” To date, the most significant gene found to predispose an individual to late onset Alzheimer’s (LOAD) has been APOE4. In this latest study, researchers from seven organizations contributed to the genome...

Typically, RMI sufferers don't experience symptoms of pain until the damage has begun. So the researchers' main goal has been fi...

Gene tests and brain imaging reveal early dementia

...e years later. "It's surprisingly difficult to diagnose Alzheimer's with any certainty, but things are made easier if you know who runs the greatest risk," she says. "If genetic mapping, MRI and cognitive tests all suggest approaching Alzheimer's, it might be an idea to start a course of treatment." ...

Scientists create dual-modality microbeads to improve identification of disease biomarkers

...ve techniques that can find a specific molecule to diagnose this disease," explained Nie. "Our technique could also be used to monitor therapeutic response. For example, if the viral level decreases in samples taken at later dates, then we know the drug is probably working." This new technology allows the ...
