Alzheimer’s Association applauds creation of first-ever National Alzheimer’s Plan

The Alzheimer’s Association commends the Obama administration for developing the country’s first-ever National Alzheimer’s Plan released yesterday. The development of the plan is a result of a mandate within the National Alzheimer’s Project Act that was passed unanimously through bipartisan congressional support and signed into law by the president last year.

New study aims to stop Alzheimer’s before it starts
After the National Alzheimer’s Plan was released, a major new drug trial to prevent Alzheimer’s disease was announced. In the study, 300 family members in Colombia who have a gene that guarantees that they will get Alzheimer’s, but who don’t yet have symptoms, will participate in a trial of an experimental drug called Crenezumab. Researchers hope the drug will attack the amyloid protein in the brain, considered a root cause of Alzheimer’s by many scientists, and keep the participants from experiencing dementia.
