A new study identifies two biomarkers in the blood that better capture early signs of Alzheimer's

The study, which used data from almost 400 participants of the ALFA+ Study, determines that the biomarkers p-tau231 and p-tau217 measured in the blood are suitable for indicating brain changes related to the amyloid protein in people without cognitive symptoms.

Identified in the blood a biomarker that allows to detect in a very precise way the initial phases of the Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers at the Pasqual Maragall Foundation's research center, the Barcelonaβeta Brain Research Center (BBRC), with the support of the “la Caixa” Foundation, have detected that the glial fibrillar acid protein (GFAP) is a very accurate biomarker for diagnosing in blood the early stages of Alzheimer’s disease.

Identified a new association between light neurofilaments and other markers of Alzheimer's disease

Researchers at the Barcelonaβeta Brain Research Center (BBRC) have identified that people with amyloid pathology and subjective cognitive impairment have an increase in light neurofilaments (NfL) in the cerebrospinal fluid and a lower volume in the hippocampus.

Weight loss may be an indicator of an increased risk of developing Alzheimer's disease

A study led by the BBRC, with the support of the “la Caixa” Foundation, suggests that people at increased risk of developing Alzheimer's experience weight loss that would precede cognitive impairment.
