Women With Memory Impairment Deteriorate Faster Than Men, Alzheimer’s Study Shows
Women with early memory problems worsen significantly faster than men at the same stage of dementia, according to a new study that offers what is perhaps the best evidence yet suggesting sex differences in vulnerability to Alzheimer’s disease. The results come from an analysis of 398 people with mild cognitive impairment enrolled in a large, national, long-term study called the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, or ADNI.
