Living with Dementia

Novel Proteins

New clues to the cause of Alzheimer’s disease

Researchers at the Sahlgrenska Academy, University of Gothenburg, have identified a series of novel proteins in human cerebrospinal fluid. The proteins, which carry specific sugar molecules, are found in greater concentrations in patients with dementia caused by Alzheimer’s disease than in patients with dementia caused by other diseases. This gives hope for new forms… New clues to the cause of Alzheimer’s disease
