Combining multiple tests could help doctors distinguish between two leading causes of cognitive decline at an earlier stage. Being able to separate the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s from another degenerative brain condition called dementia with Lewy bodies (DLB) could be crucial to finding treatments for both kinds of dementia. When someone starts to exhibit mild cognitive impairments, it is often difficult to tell whether these might be the earliest signs of Alzheimer’s or DLB, or just normal age-related declines in cognition. Yet this distinction is vital: so far, despite billions of dollars spent on research, progress towards drugs that stabilise or cure dementia has stalled. Many blame the failure on treating people too late and argue that the same drugs might work better if given a decade or two before symptoms fully develop. Now, Dilman Sadiq at University College London and her colleagues have attempted to rectify this problem by analysing clinical histories, the results of cognitive tests and psychiatric interviews with 429 people originally diagnosed with mild cognitive impairment, who were monitored for up to 14 years. Each person was diagnosed at one UK hospital between 1994 and 2015. Of this group, 107 progressed to Alzheimer’s, 21 to DLB and 164 remained stable with mild cognitive impairment. The rest developed a mixture of other conditions. Sadiq’s team used their findings to identify a variety of tests and symptom profiles that appear to predict which condition a person might get at the earliest stage of the disease. For instance, people who went on to have Alzheimer’s scored much worse than those who went on to have DLB on a word memory task. Those who went on to develop DLB, meanwhile, were more likely to report visual hallucinations, Parkinson’s-like tremors and unconsciously acting out their dreams while they slept. Sadiq hopes to build on these results to produce an algorithm to distinguish early-stage disease. “We need to replicate this in much larger samples of patients,” she says. “The results from this study suggest that combined tests could help distinguish between early Alzheimer’s or DLB, but how powerful these are in providing an accurate diagnosis on an individual level still needs to be explored,” says Laura Phipps of Alzheimer’s Research UK. “While it’s too early for this to be used in the clinic, this represents an important step forward in allowing researchers and doctors to help people with dementia receive a more accurate diagnosis, increasing their chances of taking part in relevant clinical trials,” says James Pickett, head of research at the Alzheimer’s Society in the UK.
