British scientists have made a "major step forward" in developing a blood test to predict the onset of Alzheimer's disease, according to BBC News.


Research in more than 1,000 people has identified a set of proteins in the blood which can predict the start of the dementia with 87% accuracy.

The findings, published in the journal Alzheimer's & Dementia, will be used to improve trials for new dementia drugs, BBC News reports.
