11 kinds of risk genes easily cause alzheimer's

11种易致老年痴呆的危险基因
      Alzheimer's disease is a growing burden around the world. Yet basic questions such as what causes it or how to diagnose it remain unanswered. A global team of scientists searched through the DNA of more than 50, 000 people in the hunt for clues. The study, published in Nature Genetics, identified 11 new genes on top of the ten already discovered. All can increase the chances of developing the dementia.

阿尔茨海默氏症(老年痴呆症)正日益加重世界负担。虽然关于该病的病因以及如何诊断尚未解决。由全球顶尖科学家组成的一支科研队伍进行了一项研究,该研究发表在自然遗传学杂志上。该研究提取了50,000人的基因序列,最终确定其中的11个基因是容易导致老年痴呆症的主要诱因。

     One of the lead scientists, Professor Julie Williams from Cardiff University, said working out the genes' role in Alzheimer's could lead to treatments. "It's not, you know, 21 different theories about Alzheimer's. They are forming patterns so we can look at a few different processes and try and understand those and then produce treatments from there."

   其中一位来自卡蒂夫大学的资深科学家称,找出这些基因有助于阿尔茨海默氏症的治疗。他说:“关于阿尔茨海默氏症多达21种不同的理论。精准定位这些基因为今后更全面掌握该病以及进一步确定治疗方法提供了理论依据“。

   Those patterns centre on the immune system , how the body deals with cholesterol and how cells in the brain transport material. But this is the first step. Further studies are now needed to identify precisely what is going wrong and to begin the slow process of converting the findings into treatments.

    身体如何处理胆固醇,大脑细胞如何运输信息以及其他免疫系统功能问题都是此项研究的重点。但这仅仅是第一步,未来还需要更深入的研究并定位基因本身,以及基因变异后漫长的致病过程,并将这些发现应用于疾病的治疗中。
