Transcript of "Alzheimer's Disease Prevalence, Economics, Risk & Current Research"

  1. 1. Elizabeth Chapman, MD University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, Division of Geriatrics
  2. 2. • Decline in memory and in at least one of the following cognitive abilities: • Ability to speak coherently or understand spoken or written language. • Ability to recognize or identify objects, assuming intact sensory function. • Ability to perform motor activities, assuming intact motor abilities and sensory function and comprehension of the required task. • Ability to think abstractly, make sound judgments and plan and carry out complex tasks. • The decline in cognitive abilities must be severe enough to interfere with daily life. http://www.alz.org/downloads/facts_figures_2013.pdf
  3. 3. Percentage Alzheimer's Disease 8% 7% Vascular Dementia 15% Mixed Dementia 65% 5% Dementia with Lewy Bodies Other There are many types of dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease being one of them. Adapted from: http://www.alz.org
  4. 4. • Most common type of dementia – 60-80% of all cases • Progressive neurodegenerative disorder • Clinical diagnosis is based on symptoms: • Problems with memory AND one or more other cognitive disturbance • Symptoms develop gradually • Definite diagnosis is based on characteristic changes in brain pathology (plaques, tangles) http://www.alz.org/downloads/facts_figures_2013.pdf

  15. 15. • 53% of caregivers report “a good amount” to “a great deal” of financial strain • Higher rates of depression in caregivers (39%) than noncaregivers (17%) • Caregivers rate their personal physical health more poorly than non-caregivers Adapted from : http://www.alz.org/downloads/facts_figures_2013.pdf
  16. 16. • In 2012, the Obama Administration announced a plan to commit $156 million to address Alzheimer’s Disease • The US Department of Health and Human Services’ National Plan to Address Alzheimer’s Disease aims to: • Prevent and Effectively Treat Alzheimer’s Disease by 2025. • Enhance Care Quality and Efficiency. • Expand Supports for People with Alzheimer’s Disease and Their Families. • Enhance Public Awareness and Engagement. • Track Progress and Drive Improvement. http://aspe.hhs.gov/daltcp/napa/NatlPlan2013.pdf
  17. 17. Research Goals: 1.A. Identify Research Priorities and Milestones 1.B. Expand Research Aimed at Preventing and Treating Alzheimer’s Disease 1.C. Accelerate Efforts to Identify Early and Presymptomatic Stages of Alzheimer’s Disease 1.D. Coordinate Research with International Public and Private Entities 1.E. Facilitate Translation of Findings into Medical Practice and Public Health Programs http://aspe.hhs.gov/daltcp/napa/NatlPlan2013.shtml
  18. 18. Understand the how Alzheimer’s Disease affects brain cells Identify the triggers for Alzheimer’s Disease Find ways to diagnose the disease earlier Discover better ways to treat Alzheimer’s Disease Uncover ways to prevent Alzheimer’s Disease
