From Atlanta - For years researchers have been trying to create a blood test for detecting Alzheimer's disease and new research online ahead of print in Neurology may bring us one step closer. Researchers examined the blood levels of 190 proteins in people with Alzheimer's, mild cognitive impairment, and healthy controls. 17 of the proteins were associates with MCI/AD. When they cross referenced their results with the Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, 4 of the proteins remained as potential biomarkers.

From Boston - A new report published online in The Lancet finds that the increased risk of developing diabetes when taking statins is outweighed by the cardiovascular benefits. Analyzing data from the JUPITER study, study participants on statins who had at least one risk factor for diabetes were 28% more likely to develop it. These patients however, were also 39% less likely to develop cardiovascular disease while on statins, and were 17% less likely to die during the the study period.

From Atlanta - Researchers followed nearly 200 infants and toddlers in the US receiving a two dose inactivated hepatitis A vaccine. They found that ten years after receiving their second dose of vaccine, most of the children still had antibodies for hepatitis A. Appearing in the journal Hepatology the researchers also found that the mother's hepatitis A antibody status did not significantly influence the child's response to the vaccine.
