Alzheimer's Blood Research Test

USAgainstAlzheimers
Joseph –
Researchers have discovered a first-of-its-kind blood test for Alzheimer's disease that can predict – with 90 percent accuracy – if a healthy person will develop this cruel disease within three years.
Dr. Howard Federoff, the Executive Vice President for Health Sciences and Executive Dean of Georgetown University School of Medicine, led the team and will brief us in our next Alzheimer's Talks conversation on May 16 on why his biomarker study is a potential game-changer.
The possibility of catching the disease before a patient ever shows symptoms brings us even closer to finding effective means of prevention. A blood test will enable us to identify people who will get Alzheimer's disease and give them a drug to prevent symptoms. That's why Dr. Federoff's work is so essential to moving toward our 2020 goal.
I hope you can join me to be briefed by Dr. Federoff about his preliminary – but potentially consequential – findings and what they could mean to our mission to stop this disease. Click the button below to register for our call on Friday, May 16, from 1 p.m. – 2 p.m. ET.
Yes, I will attendSorry, I can't make it (but send me a recap afterwards)
This call is made possible by the generous support of the Zickler Family Foundation. I hope to talk with you soon, and thanks for being a part of our mission to end Alzheimer's by 2020.
Sincerely,
George
P.S. Please note that everyone who registers will be called on Friday, May 16 around 1:00 p.m. ET and will be connected automatically to the free teleconference.
More than 400 leading Alzheimer's researchers agree that we can prevent and effectively treat Alzheimer's by 2025 – and it could even be sooner if critical investments and reforms are made. We must SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASE funding for Alzheimer's research in the next 5 years and we must DRAMATICALLY SHRINK the time it takes to get new, safe therapies to market.
