New blood test to accurately detect early-stage Alzheimer's
Scientists have developed a novel blood test that can detect an early stage of the Alzheimer's disease with unparallelled accuracy. The research team, led by Robert Nagele from Rowan University in the US developed the blood test that leverages the body's immune response system to detect the mild cognitive impairment (MCI) stage of Alzheimer's disease. The test showed an overall accuracy, sensitivity and specificity rate of 100 per cent in identifying those whose MCI was caused by an early stage of Alzheimer's disease.
