Alzheimer’s research published

Dr. Goodenowe’s latest peer-reviewed publication is on research results from a community trial of 1,205 persons (average age = 84) that showed that elderly persons with high blood plasmalogens had a dramatically lower rate of dementia (6%) versus persons with low blood plasmalogens (31%).

In addition, it was observed that high blood plasmalogens was also associated with a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease in persons with a high genetic risk of the disease. This is a critical observation because it shows that a person’s biochemical status affects their genetic risk for a disease, which means that it may be possible to correct genetic risk factors by targeting specific biochemical systems.
