Early detection for Alzheimer's

(CBS) -- German scientists may have discovered a new way to diagnose Alzheimer's disease early on.

They looked at the brain fluid of 58 people with slight memory problems and found that those who eventually developed Alzheimer's had higher concentrations of proteins that are associated with the disease. They say this new test can be up to 80 percent accurate in predicting whether or not the disease will develop.
