15 year old Krith Nithiyanandam has developed a test that can detect and potentially stop the spread of Alzheimer's 10 years in advance. At present, Alzheimer's can only be detected through cognitive tests or brain examination after death. Nithiyanandam has created an antibody that binds to proteins in the brain and prevents further development. The Nithiyanandam test was developed as part of the Google Science Fair, which will announce this year's winner next month. Margaret J. Howell and Jose Marcelino Ortiz discuss the latest breakthrough in Alzheimer's research in The Lip News.
