Alzheimer's disease patients are needed to participate in a study on genetic susceptibility at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston.

BCM is recruiting 125 people with Alzheimer's disease to participate in state-funded research undertaken by the Texas Alzheimer's Research Consortium to explore how genetics and inflammatory changes in the blood affect onset of this disease. Research conducted by the consortium will help develop new treatment approaches, including lifestyle changes, drugs, and immunizations.
