Media Highlight New Tests for Alzheimer's

Dr. Liana Apostolova, an associate professor of neurology and member of the Mary S. Easton Center for Alzheimer's Disease Research, was featured widely by the media about two of her research studies. One study showed that a simple blood test could be developed to confirm the presence of beta amyloid proteins in the brain, which is a hallmark of Alzheimer's disease; the other was the development of a "gold standard" way of measuring atrophy in the brain, another characteristic of the disease. Coverage included March 12 on MyFoxLA.com; March 13 on Scicasts.com; March 15 on ImperialValleyNews.com; March 25 on HealthCanal, MedicalXpress, and MyNewsLA.com; March 26 on News-Medical.net, Newkerala.com, Domain-B, WestsideToday, NeurologyAdvisor, and Medical News Today. Apostolova was also interviewed March 26 on KPCC 89.3FM.
