World's Alzheimer's disease experts to showcase latest research

CHICAGO The newest treatment advances in Alzheimer's disease and steps toward prevention will be on display at the 9th International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease and Related Disorders, July 17-22, 2004, at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. Presented by the Alzheimer's Association, the conference is the world's premiere forum for research advances in Alzheimer's disease.

"The Alzheimer's Association's goal of delaying the disabling symptoms and eventually preventing Alzheimer's is a feasible objective that we believe the research community can achieve in the next decade," said Sheldon Goldberg, Alzheimer's Association president and CEO. "The International Conference is the most important forum for introducing the latest discoveries in Alzheimer research. This is where world research leaders and all of us affected by this disease and that means everyone get to see the return on the international, and the Association's, investment in Alzheimer research."

The conference is expected to attract 5,000 researchers to share groundbreaking information on the causes of Alzheimer's, how it progresses, and ways it can be monitored and treated plus possible strategies for slowing its progression and delaying or preventing its onset.

Presentation topics will include:

  • Treatments: current interventions and approaches to future therapies
  • Risk factors and how lifestyle changes may impact risk for the disease
  • Genetics and genetic testing
  • Diagnosis: cognitive testing, biomarkers and neuroimaging
  • Causes: amyloid, tau and other disease mechanisms
  • Animal and other model systems for doing research
  • Care issues: patient management and social-behavioral research
  • Human and animal prion diseases, such as Creutzfeldt-Jakob and "Mad Cow"
