Recently, there was a gene mutation found in alzheimers disease. inheirited this disease from both parents that may be treatable. Scientists did an experiment on a 44 year old man. The test results conclude that this disease can be prevented. This man had two copies of a mutation in a gene called APP. But his realtives had only one copy of this gene. Because alzheimer's disease is caused from a small mutation, scientists have continued to research and discover new things about it.
