Means of preventing Alzheimer's disease

A group of scientists from the University of Minnesota Medical School, "Mount Sinai" (USA) discovered that isolated from grape seed polyphenols are capable of lowering the content in the brain of a substance called "beta-peptide amilodny Aβ». Its toxic effects on brain cells is the reason of memory loss in Alzheimer's disease.

Now the researchers plan to find a biomarker that will enable patients to determine a high probability of developing Alzheimer's disease. This would allow for early prevention of severe illness, even when the symptoms are absent or mild.
