High tech analysis by picking minuscule bits of amyloid-beta floating in plasma can predict the risk of Alzheimer's disease by a blood test.

By measuring the levels sticky protein called amyloid-beta which develops in blood plasma, it's possible to predict the risk of Alzheimer's disease prior a decade before symptoms appear.

According to the international journal of science, there were two data sets which has taken from Japan and Australia to carryout the research and to do calculations, there's an approximate accuracy of 90% to prove that the disease can be predict early. And patients can start clinical trials early as possible as well as plan new structures of their life style.
