Quicklink: Another Tool In The Fight Against Alzheimer’s

A team of Canadian and U.S. researchers have developed a new blood test that can detect, “mild to moderate Alzheimer’s, which means quite early,” according to lead researcher Vassilios Papadopoulos of McGill University Health Centre in Montreal.

Other scientific teams are also trying to produce reliable and non-invasive diagnostic tests for Alzheimer’s disease, which currently afflicts 18-million people worldwide, including 500,000 Canadians.
