LONDON (Worthy News)– A revolutionary discovery may produce a 'blood test' that will predict if a person may develop Alzheimer's within a year.
A blood test has been developed to predict if someone will develop Alzheimer's within a year, raising hopes that the disease could become preventable.
After a decade of research, scientists at Oxford University and King’s College London are confident they have found 10 proteins which show the disease is imminent.
Clinical trials will start on people who have not yet developed Alzheimer’s to find out which drugs halt its onset.
The blood test, which could be available in as little as two years, was described as a "major step forward" by Jeremy Hunt, the Health Secretary, and by charities which said it could revolutionise research into a cure. — Source
