Inherited Alzheimer's neuronal damage is around 10 to 20 years old before symptoms appear

According to a paper published in the scientific journal Science Translational Medicine, states that the scientist have found speedy neuronal damage initially starts 10 to 20 years earlier before it shows any symptoms. The dominant Alzheimer, Autosomal that affects families suffering from genetic mutation that could lead them to crippling disease. Through this research scientists have also observed that changes in brain could show problems before the symptoms actually appear. By this way the doctors can identify and control the disease. One of co-researcher Professor Colin Masters from the Florey Institute of Neuroscience and Mental Health and University of Melbourne explains, “As part of an international study, family members are invited to be part of a trial in which two experimental drugs are offered many years before symptoms appear. It's going to be very interesting to see how clinical intervention affects this group of patients in the decades before symptoms appear.”
