The Alzheimer’s Risk Test is a genetic test that analyses patient genotypes generated from an array of over 100,000 single nucleotide polymorphisms – genetic variants – that are associated with elevated or reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease.

How does it work?

  • The Alzheimer’s Risk Test is an established test that can assess the genetic risk of cognitive decline due to Alzheimer’s disease from a simple saliva sample.
  • The test can help individuals with cognitive concerns to assess their future risk of cognitive decline due to Alzheimer’s disease. It can also provide greater insight into the risk of cognitive decline in existing patients.
  • The test only requires a saliva sample. An easy-to-use saliva collection device enables elderly and vulnerable patients to provide a sample from home if they are not wishing or easily able to attend a healthcare setting.
  • This test will help you to better understand your genetic risk of cognitive decline due to Alzheimer’s disease.
  • A sample of your DNA is analysed against over 100,000 specific variants in your DNA associated with Alzheimer’s disease. The readout from the test also takes account of your age and sex.
  • The test will also report on APOE status – a known risk factor in Alzheimer’s.
  • Only a physician can order the Alzheimer’s Risk Test for you.

Testing Has Never Been More Convenient.
Early Intervention Is Critical

Early Signs:

By the time a patient gets diagnosed with Alzheimer’s the pathology in the brain has been degenerating for about 20 years. If we could educate the population on the need for proactive action, we could reduce the incidence of Alzheimer’s significantly. 20 years before diagnosis, the patient knows something is wrong but no one else suspects anything. If we could start treatment at this preclinical stage, the descent into cognitive decline can be completely prevented.

Stop the Progression:

The subjective cognitive impairment (SCI) stage lasts about 10 years. The decline in cognition has begun but it is easy to reverse it during this stage. Unfortunately, most people don’t do anything about it. The next stage is called mild cognitive impairment (MCI) but the name is a complete misnomer. According to Dr. Bredesen, this stage should be called advanced stage Alzheimer’s. It is still possible to reverse many symptoms but it becomes progressively harder and results take longer to achieve.

Alzheimer’s Kills:

According to the Alzheimer’s Association, more than 6 million Americans are living with Alzheimer’s. This disease kills more people than breast cancer and prostate cancer combined. Over 11 million people provide unpaid care for a loved one diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. In the last two decades, deaths from heart disease have decreased by 7.3% while deaths from Alzheimer’s have increased by 145%.
