"This is a very preliminary study with a small number of subjects and the results are far from conclusive," said Dr. Allison Reiss, head of the Inflammation Section at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, NY.
She believes the current study lacks information on possible confounding factors - things such as coexisting illnesses, medications, hydration state, tobacco use and multiple other variables that could influence what's found in the saliva samples.
"There are many gaps in the evidence," Reiss said. "It is uncertain whether the strength and consistency of the relationship between these metabolites [in saliva] and Alzheimer's risk will be maintained in a large multicenter study."
"If saliva test lives up to its promise, one advantage is the ease of obtaining a sample," he said.
But that convenience also brings its own problems, he added. "People might ask for a test even when they don't show any signs of dementia, and this may result in anxiety and depression if there is a false positive result," he said.

"This just reaffirms that statins work through multiple complex mechanisms, and that it is important to do the study rather than to come to conclusions based on assumptions," said Dr. Allison Reiss, head of Inflammation Laboratory at Winthrop-University Hospital in Mineola, N.Y. "It is also noteworthy that the population in Denmark is much more homogeneous than in other parts of the world, and results could be different if the population were more diverse."

The grant will assist researchers Allison Reiss, MD, Head of the Inflammation Section of the Winthrop Research Institute, and Mark Stecker, MD, PhD, Chairman of the Department of Neurosciences at Winthrop, along with their team in conducting an innovative study called "Platelet-Rich Plasma in the Study of Alzheimer's Pathophysiology."

There are significant systemic abnormalities in patients with AD, according to Dr. Reiss. Platelets from patients with AD produce too much amyloid, and studies have shown that levels of secreted amyloid are high even in the blood of patients with only mild cognitive impairment.
"The study is based on the belief that Alzheimer's is not just going on in the brain, but that it is a whole body disease," said Dr. Reiss.
This research has potential in both biomarker development-diagnosing who is at risk early on-and developing drug therapies to treat AD.
"If you have faulty machinery for amyloid in the brain, you most likely have faulty machinery in your platelets," added Dr. Reiss.
