For the first time, scientists have found a link between certain proteins found in the brain and the risk of people developing Alzheimer’s.

Using an advanced type of brain scanner, the researchers were able to detect two proteins called ‘Tau’ and ‘amyloid’ in the brains of patients.

On their own, these proteins do not put people at risk. However, when they become ‘tangled’ together, the combination can cause the disease to develop.

If this combination of proteins can be spotted in brain scans before typical symptoms of the disease develop, it could help doctors and patients prepare and manage the onset more effectively.
