British researchers have developed a test to detect Alzheimer's disease in its earliest stages.

 

It works by looking for a combination of "markers" in the blood which are different in healthy people and those with the disease.

 

Delegates at the Alzheimer's Research UK Conference heard that the University of Nottingham is now developing a quick and easy test to do in clinics.

 

It could mean much earlier diagnosis and better treatments, they said.


The test uses some proteins that have been strongly linked with Alzheimer's disease, such as amyloid and APOE.


But through careful analysis of blood from people with the disease, as well as those with early-stage memory problems, the researchers detected some other markers that were suggestive of the disease.

May 15, Neuroscience —Scientists from the United States and Australia have advanced our understanding of brain plasticity by showing that the brain forms complex new circuits after damage, often far from the damaged site, to compensate for lost function.

 

A new study by Drs Moriel Zelikowsky and Michael Fanselow from the University of California Los Angeles , in collaboration with Dr Bryce Vissel, from Sydney's Garvan Institute of Medical Research, identified the exact regions of the brain that take over when a learning and memory centre, known as the 'hippocampus', is damaged.

 

Their analysis identified significant functional changes in two regions of the pre-frontal cortex . "Interestingly, previous studies had shown that these pre-frontal cortex regions also light up in the brains of Alzheimer's patients, suggesting that similar compensatory circuits develop in people," said Dr Vissel.

 

Dr Zelikowsky finds it interesting that subregions in the pre-frontal cortex compensate in different ways, with one subregion – the infralimbic cortex – silencing its activity and another subregion – the prelimbic cortex – increasing its activity. "If we're going to harness this kind of plasticity to help stroke victims or people with Alzheimer's, we first have to understand exactly how to differentially enhance and silence function, either behaviourally or pharmacologically," she said.

 

Dr Michael Fanselow explained that whenever a complex behaviour develops, it always involves multiple parts of the brain talking to each other, one region's message affecting how another region will respond.

 

"So there are many alternate pathways the brain can use – but it normally doesn't use them unless it's forced to. Once we understand how the brain makes these decisions, then we're in a position to encourage pathways to take over when they need to, especially in the case of brain damage."

 

"Behaviour creates molecular changes in the brain – so if we know the molecular changes we want to bring about, then we can try and facilitate those changes to occur through behaviour and drug therapy. I think that's the best alternative we have – future treatments are not going to be all behavioural or all pharmacological, but a combination of both."

 

"While it's probable that the brains of Alzheimer's sufferers are already compensating for damage, this discovery has significant potential for extending that compensation and improving the lives of many," added Dr Vissel.
