They detect the second case of a person resistant to hereditary Alzheimer’s

A genetic mutation significantly delayed the symptoms of hereditary Alzheimer’s suffered by a Colombian man.

According to the study, the man carried a rare genetic mutation called E280A, a genetic variant that predisposed him to suffer from a hereditary form of Alzheimer’s that manifests itself in early dementia, with sudden memory loss around the age of 44; but the patient did not suffer cognitive deterioration until he was 67 years old and did not even develop Alzheimer’s until he was 72 years old.

The old man passed away in 2019 and donated his brain to science and with this scientific finding, new hopes are opened to find a treatment for the degenerative disease.
