Blood test can now predict Alzheimer's

  • British scientists have developed a blood test that can detect which people with mild memory loss will eventually develop Alzheimer’s, as per media reports. 

    The 10-year research, which led to this breakthrough was carried out by a global collaboration that included researchers from London’s King’s College and Proteome Sciences, a British firm.

    The test, based on a set of 10 proteins in the blood, can predict with an accuracy of 87% the onset of Alzheimer's disease within a year among people with failing memory.

    The test is expected to be available in two years and cost between £100 and £300.
