Alzheimers Disease Detection

An animal study shows that by means of a harmless fluorescent dye placed on the retina of the eye, a follow-up eye exam could help diagnose Alzheimer’s Disease and other neurological disorders before the appearance of actual symptoms begin.

This study was recently published in the open-access peer-reviewed journal Cell Death and Disease. Plans are being made for human trials soon.
