Researchers may have found a new protein behind Alzheimer's disease.

FOX's Colleen Cappon reports in this edition of "Housecall for Health":

Scientists say they've made a breakthrough discovery in Alzheimer's research. A study from the Stanford University School of Medicine proves the steady accumulation of a specific protein, known as C1q, in healthy, aging brains may explain senior's vulnerability to neurodegenerative disorders. The findings could fundamentally change the way scientists think about Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
