Women’s Dementia Risk Appears to Be Reflected by Alterations in Brain Protein

Women’s Dementia Risk Appears to Be Reflected by Alterations in Brain Protein
Studies have shown that women suffer a higher risk of developing dementia than men. Now, a study reports that this gender difference seems to be mirrored by molecular changes in brain proteins, raising prospects of identifying better treatments for both men and women. "The number of dementia patients is projected to triple by 2050 and there is an urgent need to identify key mechanisms of how dementia develops," said Associate Prof. Sze Siu Kwan of the Nanyang Technological University in Singapore, the senior author of the study, in a press release. "Our findings and further study could have direct implications for our knowledge about the progression of dementia that c
