A “potential game changing” blood test could be used to predict who will develop Alzheimer’s disease, according to scientists. The diagnostic test is based on the discovery of two protein molecules in the blood which contribute to neuronal damage in the brain. By identifying the presence of these proteins, doctors could be able to diagnose the disease or distinguish it from other common forms of dementia.
