Predicting Alzheimer's: UR plays major role in breakthrough

Rochester, N.Y. -- A new blood test developed in part by researchers from the University of Rochester is extremely accurate in predicting whether a healthy person will develop Alzheimer's disease, according to a new study.

Results from the test show that testing levels of ten fats in the blood could predict the risk of the disease coming on in the next three years. It was 90% accurate.

The study, conducted by researchers from UR and Georgetown University, was published in the journal "Nature Medicine." CNN reports that the lead author was a neuropsychologist at the UR Medical Center.
