WHAT WE KNOW TODAY

47 million people worldwide are living with dementia or Alzheimer’s disease
Every 66 seconds someone new develops the disease
Almost 2/3 of people living with Alzheimer’s are female
In 2017, Alzheimer’s and other Dementias will cost our nation $259 billion. By 2050 these costs can be as great as $1.1 TRILLION.
Alzheimer’s is more deadly than breast & prostate cancer combined

The Alzheimer’s struggle is real. Currently there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, but there are pharmaceutical, alternative, and behavioral treatments which may help. If you remember, we previously posted an article about the cutting edge treatments available at Syrentis Clinical Research and our friend, Dr. John Duffy’s endless effort to prevent Alzheimer’s and Dementia.

Alzheimer’s research is continually evolving. Below are the new research studies and trial medications available to help end Alzheimer’s #ENDALZ. If you qualify, it is free to participate.

TOMORROW’S ANSWERS

The A4 Study

This is a landmark clinical trial aimed to prevent memory loss due to Alzheimer’s. The A4 Study is investigating a new treatment that may reduce the impact of a protein that is known as “amlyoid” or “beta amlyoid” which causes plaque build up in the brain.

Slow Alzheimer’s with better sleep

Sleep, is essential for optimal day-to-day functions and affects both our mental and physical health. We have previously discussed bedroom basics for a better night’s sleep, but sometimes that is not enough. This is a new ReCOGNITION study evaluating an investigational sleep-promoting medication to combat Alzheimer’s disease.
