A team from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST) has developed another blood test that can help diagnose Alzheimer’s.
The blood test identifies the core biomarkers of this plasma disease, a multiplexed electrical biosensor is involved in the tes which identifies Alzheimer’s biomarkers such as amyloid42, beta-amyloid40, total tau etc.
The researchers found an 88% accuracy rate.
in the study it was noted that the levels of amyloid and tau in the brain undergo changes and increase years after symptoms occur. Identifying amyloid levels in time allows for faster diagnoses. Los tudio was made on patients already suffering from Alzheimer’s, obviously to improve the efficiency of the study it is necessary to test it with patients with mild cognitive impairment.
