Importance of Early Detection in Alzheimer’s Research

A long study in China watched people’s brains for 20 years according to The Columbian. They found clues about Alzheimer’s before people show signs. Those who got Alzheimer’s later had more of a certain protein in their spinal fluid 18 years before. Then, every few years, other signs of trouble showed up. This study is important for finding ways to treat and maybe prevent Alzheimer’s. Right now, there’s no cure. But new drugs can slow it down. Knowing when these changes happen could help make better treatments.
