BBRC researchers discovered new benefits of blue fish consumption in people at risk of developing Alzheimer's disease
A study led by the BBRC has found that people without cognitive problems but with a higher genetic risk of developing Alzheimer's have certain areas of the brain more resilient to the disease if they are accustomed to consuming a nutrient provided by blue fish.
A team of researchers from the AMYPAD consortium, led at BBRC, showed that the visual assessment used in clinical practice to evaluate amyloid PET images is sensitive to detecting the earliest stages of Alzheimer’s disease, and suggests a method to classify the extent of the pathology in the brain.
