Novel Alzheimer's test can predict age of disease onset

New York, March 23 (UITV/IANS) A novel test based on genetic information allows individuals to calculate their age-specific risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, a study led by an Indian-origin scientist has revealed.

The study showed that the polygenic hazard scoring (PHS) system strongly predicted the actual age of Alzheimer's onset and progression from normal ageing to Alzheimer's, with strongly associated neuropathology and biomarkers of Alzheimer's neurodegeneration.

The test could be used to calculate any individual's risk of developing Alzheimer's that year, said Rahul S. Desikan from the University of California, San Diego.

"That is if you don't already have dementia, what is your yearly risk for Alzheimer's onset, based on your age and genetic information," Desikan added.

In the study, appearing in the journal PLOS Medicine, the researchers combined genotype-derived polygenic information -- involving multiple genes -- with known Alzheimer's incidence rates to derive instantaneous risk estimates for developing Alzheimer's.
