Development of Blood Test for Alzheimer's Disease

Scientists have developed and validated a blood test for Alzheimer's disease, with the potential to massively ramp up the pace of Alzheimer's disease drug trials. The blood test measures a specific peptide in the blood to inform scientists, with 90% accuracy, if a patient has the very earliest stages of Alzheimer's disease. The research was published in the issue of Nature.
