Most American Seniors Would Take Test Predicting Alzheimer’s, Study Indicates

HealthDay (12/13, Preidt) reports, “If a test could tell them they were going to develop Alzheimer’s disease, most American seniors would take it,” researchers found after asking “875 people aged 65 and older if they would take a free, accurate test to predict their future risk of the progressive brain disorder.” In fact, “three-quarters said they would take such a test,” investigators found. The findingswere published online Dec. 12 in Alzheimer’s Research and Therapy.
