Researchers smell hope in diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease
from By Denise A. Valenti
A research group in Boston recently used an olfactometer to determine the early diagnosis of Alzheimer's disease, and they published the results of this study in the recent issue of Annals of Neurology. Those in the Alzheimer's disease community have been aware for many years of the deficits in olfactory function early in the disease process. The olfactory system is also impacted in Parkinson's disease. But testing of olfactory deficits can be cumbersome and difficult to interpret.
