A form of Alzheimer's disease has been found in some teenagers - more than 20 years before symptoms even develop, according to a new study
Research on a group of young adults found about 30% have a mutation of a gene called presenilin 1 (PSEN1), which makes them more likely to develop Alzheimer's at an unusually young age. Although the inherited form of the disease is rare, the researchers say it offers them a critical opportunity to look for early signs of the disease before clinical symptoms appear.
