2020 年阿滋海默症協會國際會議的要點

芝加哥,2020 年 7 月 30 日 – 2020 阿滋海默症協會國際會議(AAIC)上發表的研究結果 顯示,60 歲後接種流感和肺炎疫苗,年輕時較低的體質指數(BMI),以及其它健康因素, 均與較低的阿滋海默症和其他失智症風險有關聯。 阿滋海默症協會協會首席科學官 Maria C. Carrillo 博士表示:「在 AAIC 2020 報告的這些新 發現表明, 在我們一生中任何階段都有可能透過某種行為措施來降低罹患阿滋海默症和 其他失智症的風險。」 2020 阿滋海默症協會國際會議中分享的其他報告顯示: 如果經過進一步研究能驗證的話,那麼未來也許只要血液檢查某種異常 tau 蛋白就 能診斷阿滋海默症而無需另外的確認。即不用屍檢,也不需澱粉樣蛋白和 tau 正電 子發射斷層掃描(PET)。心臟健康風險因素(例如高血壓,糖尿病和超重)會影響晚年的記憶和認知,即使 是早年如青春期的狀況都會有影響,非裔美國人尤其如是。較高質量的早期教育,與更好的語言和記憶表現,與晚年較低的失智症風險相關。這種聯繫對男性或女性,以及黑人或白人會有所差異 在 AAIC 2020 上,阿滋海默症協會宣布啟動一項新的國際研究,以追踪和了解暴露在新型 冠狀病毒中對大腦,包括認知,行為和功能的長期影響。來自 30 多個國家的科學家熱切 參與這項研究。在我們推動這一重要合作時世界衛生組織(WHO)也將提供技術援助。為了對這項研究建立堅實的基礎,我們將就如何測試和收集數據與現有研究(例如 Framingham 心臟研究)以及來自世界各地的臨床醫生保持一致。為了更好地了解病毒對 大腦的影響,我們將考慮進行交叉研究合作。 其他 AAIC 精選故事的細節: 流感和肺炎疫苗可降低阿滋海默症的風險 AAIC 2020 的一項新研究表明,接種流感疫苗和肺炎疫苗與降低阿滋海默症的風險有關 聯。兩項針對老年人的研究發現,接受流感或肺炎疫苗接種的人罹患阿滋海默症的可能性 較小。那些更經常接種流感疫苗的人的風險更低。接種肺炎疫苗,對未攜帶一個已知阿滋 海默症遺傳風險因素(TOMM40 基因的變體)的人群能最大地降低風險。 這些報告是首次大規模地研究疫苗接種與阿滋海默症風險之間的關係,強調疫苗接種作為 一種可行的潛在干預方法,並為觀察到的疫苗保護作用的生物學機制進行深入研究提供了 依據。 血液測試異常腦蛋白可用於確認阿滋海默症的診斷 AAIC …
