Alzheimer’s Breakthrough: Genetic Link to Gut Disorders Confirmed

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, neuroscience

Summary: A new study reveals a genetic link between Alzheimer’s disease and several gut-related disorders. Researchers report Alzheimer’s patients and those with intestinal disorders have specific genes in common. The findings add to the evidence the gut-brain axis may play a role in the development of neurodegenerative disorders.
