It Reveals the Mystery of Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's disease in fact save a lot of mysteries. In a series of recent studies, the veil of mystery is finally slowly began to open wide.

A number of researchers are developing a simple memory test tool that can help determine when a person suffers from dementia and brain signals such as reasoning problems in Alzheimer's disease.

In a study in the journal Alzheimer Disease and Associated Disorders, a neurologist, Dr. Douglas Scharrer at Ohio State University Medical Center, USA, reported that these test kits can detect up to 80 percent of people with mild memory problems and brain.

In this study revealed that people have a good brain function, of which one shows the person has a problem, amounting to 5 percent among people with normal memory.

In published data, Scharrer also said the tests could help people get appropriate treatment for conditions such as Alzheimer's disease ini.Yang become an obstacle, he said, and this is repeated so that people do not come in initial diagnosis.

Another thing, he continued, the family refuses to make the recognition of patients because they do not want to know the worst of themselves known.

"Whatever the reason, this is regrettable because the drugs we use now works better than before," said HealthdayNews.com Scharrer.

The test can be done in writing. Scharrer said that this test may help people who are not comfortable with technology such as computers. This test only takes 15 minutes to complete and is available free to health workers in www.sagetest.osu.edu.

"They can take the test in the waiting room while waiting for the doctor," Scharrer said.

"This test can show abnormal early warning for the families of patients," Scharrer said.

The results can provide guidance to caregivers for the elderly began to more closely monitor the patient's condition to ensure the safety and health.

It would protect patients from "predatory" financial. In this study, 254 people over 59 years and has run this test. In all, 63 of which require in-depth clinical care to assess the level of cognitive ability.

Another study showed that people with a family history of developing Alzheimer's disease appears to have toxic groups of the protein in their brains, even though they are known to be very healthy. This research was conducted by the New York University Langone Medical Center, USA.

Researchers say these findings could lead to new methods to identify individuals more likely to suffer from Alzheimer's disease the highest, when there was still time to do something.

"Hopefully, someday the medical community to diagnose with precision and clarity the process before Alzheimer's symptoms occur when the brain is still healthy. And care will have the best chance of success," said Lisa Mosconi of New York Medical Center Langone, University of New York University, USA.

This is expressed in the journal The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The research team continues to follow the participants in this study to see if they could also be affected by dementia and want to replicate the findings of a study that much greater.

A few teams have been working on better ways to detect the early stages of Alzheimer's in hopes of developing drugs that could fight before causing further damage.

Current treatments can not reverse the course of Alzheimer's brains, but "steal" the thoughts that cause dementia affecting over 26 million people worldwide.

Mosconi The research team used the imaging technique called positron emission tomography or PET with a fluorescent dye called Pittsburgh Compound B.

These compounds cause clumps of proteins called beta-amyloid which is characteristic of Alzheimer's disease. The research team reflected the brains of 42 men with a mean age of 65, with a healthy brain function.

Of this total, 14 people suffering from Alzheimer women, 14 men with the disease and 14 parents with healthy brain function. The brain scans of 42 men found that those whose parents, either father or mother has Alzheimer's is more likely to amyloid plaques in the brain. This is especially true for people whose mother had Alzheimer's.

"They have a" deposit "of 20 percent more beta-amyloid in their brains. In other words, they are almost four times greater risk for beta-amyloid pathology," said Mosconi.

The results of this study reaffirm that having a mother with Alzheimer's may become a major risk factor for Alzheimer's.

"It seems that if you have a maternal history of Alzheimer's disease, beta amyloid plaques and risk reduction in brain activity is much greater than having a parent with the same condition," said Mosconi.

After the third age, "said Mosconi, family history of Alzheimer's is increasing the greatest risk factor for the spread of this disease. Not everyone who has beta-amyloid plaque in their brains develop Alzheimer's disease.

"Having a plaque did not increase the risk (Alzheimer's)," he said.

Definition of Alzheimer's disease is one of the most common form of dementia in the clinic. Dementia is a symptom of brain damage interfere with the ability to thought, memory and language function. This causes difficulties for patients with dementia to perform daily activities.

Name of Alzheimer's disease comes from the name of Dr. Alois Alzheimer, the German doctor who first discovered the disease in 1906. Dr. Alzheimer noticed changes in brain tissue in women who died from a mental disorder who had never known before.
