Brief description Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia and yet a postmortem examination serves as the only definitive diagnosis. The current proposal seeks to investigate alterations in biochemical profiles of individuals who will develop Alzheimer’s disease due to an inherited mutation, against family members who are non-carriers of the mutation, to identify AD related blood changes which can contribute towards the development of a diagnostic blood test for the disease.
