Researchers report they are nearing development of a blood test that will accurately detect Alzheimer's disease and give doctors the ability to intervene at the earliest stage of the disease.
Researchers use a simple blood test to detect evidence of concussion in patients up to 7 days after injury has occurred.
Researchers report blood microRNA levels could reflect brain changes.
A new fruit fly model in development could lead to low cost blood tests to help diagnose a deadly prion disease.
Researchers have devised a new blood test that can detect if amyloid had begun to accumulate in the brain. The test help physicians diagnose Alzheimer's disease in a cheaper, less invasive way than currently available. The researchers will present their findings at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference in London.
Researchers have identified a specific group of circulating tumor cells in the blood stream of patients with breast cancer brain metastases. The finding is helping researchers to develop a new blood test to identify breast cancer patients at risk of developing brain metastasis.
A new method of examining blood plasma allowed researchers to identify specific chemical bonds within the blood. The new technique allowed researchers to accurately distinguish between Alzheimer's disease and Lewy body dementia, thus reducing cases of misdiagnosis.
Researchers have developed a new blood test capable of detecting biomarkers of Alzheimer's disease long before the first symptoms appear.
