DALE BREDESEN, MD

The cause(s) of Alzheimer’s disease have remained incompletely defined, although risk factors such as type 2 diabetes and the epsilon-4 allele of the Apolipoprotein E gene (ApoE4) have been described. Precision medicine approaches have proven valuable for the evaluation and treatment of various malignancies. This presentation will review the metabolic profiling done by Dr. Bredesen and his team in patients with Alzheimer’s disease and pre-dementia conditions. The results suggested that mycotoxin exposure may be a novel cause of Alzheimer’s disease.
