Alzheimer disease is a secret illness, whose clinical symptoms do not come into notice at an early stage. But according to research, this disease could be detected up to the age of 25 years by checking over the changes that take place in brain proteins and other related signals.
An association of international researchers has discovered this secret and the same have been clearly mentioned in the prestigious New England Journal of Medicine this week.
With this discovery, a ray of hope has been augmented. If Alzheimer’s disease is being diagnosed at an early stage, then certain preventions and precautions could be taken to stop it before it worsens. This will also help in developing new diagnostic tools and preventative measures for Alzheimer as well Dementia.
As said by Peter Schofield, executive director at Neuroscience Research Australia in Sydney, and co-author on the paper: “By looking at changes in people before they show clinical signs of the disease, we will be able to develop more targeted treatments and identify the best window in which, one day, we may be able to prevent this disease altogether”.
With growing times, the existence of Alzheimer’s disease is also increasing and so is Dementia. It is very important to stop this curse at this stage otherwise as estimated by researchers, by 2050, it will drag the number of dementia patients to levels that we cannot even think of today.
