More Encouraging News About Alzheimer’s

I’ve written before about the relationship between amyloid plaque and Alzheimer’s. Amyloid accumulates over time in the brain of Alzheimer’s patients and is the focus of many of the tests and studies done to help better understand the causes of the disease and how to treat it.

Health News Digest reports that one study is centering their focus elsewhere. The Taub Institute recently completed a study, which instead focused on small-vessel cerebrovascular disease. Though it is a small study, the findings suggest that, what they refer to as white matter hypersensitivities in the study, were equally associated with Alzheimer’s and equally useful in predicting the onset of the disease as amyloid.
