There's NOW a Test to Detect Alzheimer's Disease!

Alzheimer's is a dreaded disease and definitive proof of it only came after death when an autopsy was performed. Now there's great news! Researchers have found a test that detects the disease with 90% accuracy!

Geert De Meyer, Ghent University, Belgium, and colleagues discovered two proteins in spinal fluid that are also found in the brains of Alzheimers' patients. These proteins lead to the correct diagnosis of the disease in 90% of the patients studied.

Alzheimer's Test Study: More Results

The scientists were able to detect with 100% accuracy, in people with memory problems, those who would contract the disease within five years. And in 36% of the people studied with normal brain function, they were able to detect Alzheimer's proteins.

The study was published in the Archives of Neurology.

Thank heaven for the researcher's who developed the test to detect Alzheimer's Disease!

Madam Aphrodite™ Speaks...

Considering that doctors had previously used (and are still using) simple cognitive tests to try to diagnose Alzheimer's disease, along with taking a physical and medical history that provided no definitive answers, this test is a MAJOR breakthrough! It may even one day, lead to a cure.

Thanks to Dr. De Meyer and his colleagues, we now have this test that can definitively diagnose this disease, one way or the other!
