Alzheimer
English scientists have made an unexpected unexpected scientific discovery: there is acquired Alzheimer's disease. At the moment the researchers are checking the assumption, is it possible to get infected with this disease through blood transfusion or surgical instruments.

Researchers from University institutions of London headed by doctor of medical Sciences John Collinge the study revealed that in rare cases of Alzheimer's disease can be infected, reports Medpage Today. "In addition to Alzheimer's disease, caused by old age or hereditary factor may exist and acquired forms of this disease," - said the head of the scientific work.

However the researchers warned that this discovery requires further clarification because it is made only on the basis of a study of 8 people. Researchers analyzed the results of the autopsy 8 patients dead of disease Creutzfeldt-Jakob (BCA). 4 of them were identified beta-amyloid -a protein associated with Alzheimer's disease. In the body 3 other patients in addition, these proteins were found, but in lower concentration.

It turns out that all subjects in childhood treated with human growth hormone derived from pituitary glands of dead people. By 1985, this method was put under the ban in the investigation of cases BKA among patients. Researchers have suggested that the presence of beta-amyloid for patients who were only 36-58 years, highly unusual. Based on this they concluded that through the injection of growth hormones these people could be infected with an incurable neurodegenerative diseases.

If you look from another angle, declare research workers, the accumulation of the proteins BCA could provoke and accumulation of beta-amyloid. In proof of this they studied 116 patients with BCA, however in their blood was found the protein that causes Alzheimer's disease. Currently, researchers are actively trying to find out whether it is possible to infect the body of the inhabitant of our planet by beta-amyloid through a blood transfusion or surgical instruments.
