Your Road Map to the Future Begins Here
Alzheimer's Outlook 2013
Eight leading experts provide the latest thinking on new and emerging approaches to the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of Alzheimer's disease and other dementias
If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with Alzheimer's disease or another memory disorder...
Or if you are caring for someone with Alzheimer's and are wondering if there's a new drug or therapy in the pipeline that might help...
Then it's vitally important to stay on top of developments in the field -- so you can ask your doctor the key questions -- and discuss the critical issues that affect the management of the disease.
To help you, we have just published Alzheimer's Outlook 2013 -- a valuable new resource that allows you to sit down with a group of preeminent physicians and listen in as they share their insights and ideas about the future course of Alzheimer's disease -- and provide a clear sense of what caregivers and patients can hope for.
Alzheimer's Outlook 2013 is part of a series of annual research reports written for concerned lay readers. It gives you special access to information you won't find anywhere else on the future of Alzheimer's research.
What's in the Alzheimer's pipeline?
In the past few years, researchers have made meaningful strides in the understanding of dementia prevention, diagnosis and treatment. Many important breakthroughs have come from the talented physicians and scientists working here at Johns Hopkins Medicine.
In the pages of Alzheimer's Outlook 2013 you'll gain unprecedented access to the insights of Hopkins experts, as well as from colleagues at other renowned research centers.
And there's so much exciting information to report!
Although we don't yet have a drug to stop the disease progression, new techniques in molecular biology and genetics are providing remarkable insights into how and why Alzheimer's begins, how it progresses and how it produces symptoms.
Great progress has also been made in brain imaging and other biomarkers that might allow us to diagnose Alzheimer's when no or minimal symptoms are present.
