    Will it be possible to detect early Alzheimer’s simply and cheaply by an eye examination? Researchers report they managed to photograph the plaques thought to be associated with the disorder after subjects drank a solution containing curcumin which binds to the plaques. As the eye is part of the brain a simple eye examination may in future be able to detect the disorder at a much earlier stage offering the possibility of earlier intervention opportunities.

    Will it be possible to detect early Alzheimer’s simply and cheaply by an eye examination? Cedars –Sinai neuroscience researchers report they managed to successfully visualise the plaques thought to be associated with the disorder by photographing the back of the eye after subjects drank a solution containing curcumin. Curcumin is a constituent of turmeric and acts a marker by binding to the amyloid-beta plaques and as the eye is part of the brain this suggests a simple eye examination may in future be able to detect the disorder at a much earlier stage offering the possibility of earlier intervention opportunities.
