Latest Early-onset Alzheimer's disease Stories
Scientists have identified a set of 10 proteins in the blood which can predict the onset of Alzheimer's, marking a significant step towards developing a blood test for the disease.
Harvard stem cell scientists have successfully converted skins cells from patients with early-onset Alzheimer's into the types of neurons that are affected by the disease, making it possible for the first time to study this leading form of dementia in living human cells.
Cleveland Clinic researchers have identified a protein in the brain that plays a critical role in the memory loss seen in Alzheimer's patients.
People who carry a genetic mutation associated with Alzheimer's disease may develop the disease three years earlier than expected.
Researchers at Columbia University Medical Center recently discovered key molecular pathways in the brain that lead to late-onset Alzheimer's disease, the most common form of the disorder.
Researchers have found that the brains of patients with early-onset Alzheimer's produce about 20 percent more of a protein fragment known as amyloid beta 42 than family members without the disease.
