Study offers new hope for early attack against Alzheimer’s

– Posted in: Commentary

Early detection of Alzheimers has the power to save lives. And through new studies of A4 or anti-Amyloid Treatment there is a possibility that early detection and life saving measures can be made earlier than ever before. At least 5 million Americans are living with Alzheimers and the number will increase to over 13.5 million by mid century. Some treatments like solanezumab have been applied without any outcomes. However the lack of success has allowed researchers in different countries to test the A4 study. And if A4 doesn’t work out, researchers are working on an A3 treatment. With developing treatments and increased awareness of Alzheimers, the race to detect and treat it earlier is on.

Key Takeaways:

  • According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately 94,000 people a year die from Alzheimer’s.
  • 5 million, which is the current number of individuals living with the illness, is expected to rise to 13.5 million by 2050.
  • Researchers feel they have deduced the steps of degeneration that lead to Alzheimer’s.

“The Harvard Aging Brain Study, a National Institute on Aging-backed project now in its seventh year, has shown that amyloid beta, the protein thought to cause Alzheimer’s, accumulates in the brain a decade or more before symptoms occur.”
