A new nanotechnology-based technique could lead to a test for diagnosing the early signs of Alzheimer's disease

A new nanotechnology-based technique could lead to a test for diagnosing the early signs of Alzheimer's disease. The Bio-Barcode-Assay can recognise ADDL, a protein that accumulates in the brains of sufferers.

It is a million times more sensitive than conventional tests and could revolutionise disease detection.

In future, it might form the basis not only of a test for Alzheimer's but also for types of cancer, the human form of mad cow disease and HIV.

Details of the technique have been outlined at a one-day conference in London.

Until now, doctors had no way of diagnosing Alzheimer's disease in their patients. The disease could only be confirmed after death, by studying brain tissue.
