Microbiome Predicts Early Alzheimer’s

Very interesting new article in the journal Science Translational Medicine about how the composition of the gut microbiome can be used as an early predictor of Alzheimer’s Disease.

Here is a link to the article = https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/scitranslmed.abo2984

The article is important because it showed that individuals with Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have an altered gut microbiome, and these changes occur early in the disease course, and also that the gut microbiomes of people with preclinical AD (indicated by altered brain amyloid and tau proteins) had a different composition from that of healthy individuals.
