Progress Report on Alzheimerís Disease (2007): Discovery and Hope
Barry Leonard (ed)
Alzheimerís Disease (AD) is the most common form of dementia. Among Americans age 72 and older, one in seven has dementia and about 2.4 million have AD. The number of Americans aged 65 or older with AD will be 5.1 million in 2010. The number of people with the disease doubles for every 5-year age interval beyond age 65. This report describes the NIHís important AD research effort. It begins with a brief primer on AD that reviews the main features of the disease, discusses the causes, and describes how AD is diagnosed and treated. The report also highlights recent advances in nine major areas. It concludes with an outline of the diverse ways in which NIH is building on the momentum of 3 decades of groundbreaking AD research.
