Early prevention of Alzheimer’s disease: Scientific justification and current strategies

15th International conference on dementia and Alzheimers disease

ScientificTracks Abstracts: J Neurol Neurophysiol

Increasing evidence from longitudinal imaging studies and prospective epidemiological observations suggests that Alzheimer???s pathology is present decades before a dementia diagnosis. What is now referred to as late-onset Alzheimer???s Disease (AD) is thus likely to be a clinically silent disorder of mid-life rather than a disease of old age. This view is further supported by risk factor studies which demonstrate that targeting mid-life exposure to the principal risk factors may significantly reduce dementia incidence. Current evidence suggests that a change in clinical approach notably involving promotion of cardiovascular health in persons with a family history of Alzheimer???s disease may considerably delay dementia onset and also that the development of biomarkers at this early stage will lead to the possibility of pre-clinical trials. Two international intiatives are described; the prevent multi-site Project and the EPAD Clinical Trials Platform which are currently developing new protocols for pre-clinical treatment.
