“The disease doesn’t start when the memory problems become apparent,” said Dr. William Klunk, a neurology professor at the University of Pittsburgh and an adviser to the Alzheimer’s Association.They try to find people who are likely to develop Alzheimer with the goal to develop a standardized method to do it. Some researchers and particularly Shraddha Sapkota and colleagues at the University of Alberta in Canada think that someday a saliva test and the liquid chromatography mass spectrometry will be possible to be applied. Other tests in the works include blood tests. Real results, when obtained will help a lot of people because at this time only in the U.S. 5.3 million Americans have the disease and it’s predicted that the number will rise to 13.8 million by 2050.
