September is World Alzheimer's Month

Tuesday, September 4, 2018

September 2018 is the seventh annual World Alzheimer’s Month, an international campaign to raise dementia awareness and challenge stigma. According to Alzheimer’s Disease International, someone in the world develops dementia every three seconds. Worldwide, there are over 50 million people living with dementia in 2018; if effective risk-reduction strategies are not implemented, this number will increase to 152 million by 2050. 

Fortunately, researchers like Dr. Dale Bredesen are revealing new insights into the erosion of memory seen in Alzheimer’s disease. At the 2018 AspenBrainLab, Dr. Bredesen shared new therapeutic approaches to Alzheimer’s and other neurodegenerative conditions. His groundbreaking discoveries include:

  • the identification of subtypes of Alzheimer’s disease
  • the first description of reversal of symptoms in patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and early Alzheimer’s disease with the ReCODE (reversal of cognitive decline) protocol.
