Genes indicating risk for Alzheimer’s disease identified using new testing methods | Health

A new UCLA-led study has used a combination of novel testing methods to identify several novel risk genes for Alzheimer’s disease and a related rare brain disorder called progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) through mass variant screening genetics in a single experiment. The study, which has been published in the journal ‘Science’, also includes a new …
