Dementia: Combination of ‘feelings’ and measurements suggest Alzheimer’s in the early stage

Subjective memory disorders in conjunction with conspicuous levels of beta-amyloid proteins in the cerebrospinal fluid are a strong indication of developing Alzheimer’s disease. This is the conclusion of a DZNE study involving about 1,000 older adults. A team led by dementia researcher Frank Jessen reports on these findings in the journal Alzheimer’s & Dementia. The study results could contribute to the early detection and treatment of Alzheimer’s disease.
