Alterations in erythrocyte fatty acid composition in preclinical Alzheimer's disease.


PMID 28386119

Abstract

Brain and blood fatty acids (FA) are altered in Alzheimer's disease and cognitively impaired individuals, however, FA alterations in the preclinical phase, prior to cognitive impairment have not been investigated previously. The current study therefore evaluated erythrocyte FA in cognitively normal elderly participants aged 65-90 years via trans-methylation followed by gas chromatography. The neocortical beta-amyloid load (NAL) measured via positron emission tomography (PET) using ligand
