Diagnosing Alzheimer's made possible with blood test

Diagnosing Alzheimer’s is now possible with a blood test.

The results of a study in Sweden show that the new method used for diagnosing Alzheimer’s is highly accurate.

In the new method, which was conducted on 786 individuals, a blood test measures the level of a protein called p-tau217.

The level of this protein in the blood indicates biological changes in the brains of people with Alzheimer’s.

Researchers hope that this test can be effective in early detection of Alzheimer’s, which leads to cognitive decline in many cases.

Researchers also believe that this test can become a routine examination in individuals, similar to measuring blood cholesterol levels.

Currently, a lumbar puncture, which is a very difficult and painful procedure, is used for diagnosing Alzheimer’s by sampling cerebrospinal fluid.
