Alzheimer's Disease May Have Genetic Link

Advertisement
There is every possibility that there could be a common gene which gives rise to Alzheimer's disease, according to researchers belonging to the Indiana University School of Medicine. This could also serve to conclusively prove that it is a family disease. Genetic information is sought from about 1,000 families in which the Alzheimer's disease is prevalent in two or more members.

The genetic link with regard to the disease was sought to be established over a period of several years by the scientists belonging to the Indiana University. Managing to locate two siblings suffering from the condition is not expected to be an easy task. The National Cell Repository will store the blood samples of the participants in the research.
