This blog is for those who suffer from Alzheimer's Disease,
FTD and forms of dementia, caregivers, friends and medical professionals that want to share their feelings, thoughts, encouragement, vent and open how they cope with this disease. I was diagnosed in 2004 with the early stages, and quite frankly it scared the beegeebees out of me. 2007 PET SCAN confirmed all.
US AGAINST ALZHEIMER'S PRESENTS A FREE WEBINAR: A MAJOR BREAKTHROUGH
When a story on Alzheimer's research makes it to The New York Times' most-shared list, you know there's been a major breakthrough.
For the first time, researchers have been able to replicate Alzheimer's outside of the brain – they're calling it "Alzheimer's in a Dish." This advancement will allow scientists and doctors to evaluate their experimental treatments and techniques that – until now – would have required human subjects for testing.
This could speed up the research process and help us find a way to stop Alzheimer's faster. We're thrilled to have the head of that groundbreaking team, Dr. Rudolph E. Tanzi of Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital, join us for our next Alzheimer's Talks.
Join our conversation and hear about his plan to quickly evaluate more than 6,000 drugs – a goal that would have been out of the question just a few months ago.
Experts in the field are calling this "a real game changer" and "a giant step forward for the field." I'm excited to learn how Dr. Tanzi and his team are moving us closer to a cure for Alzheimer's, and I'm looking forward to having you join the conversation.
