Abstract

For the past few years Dr. Jack Diamond has been making presentations on Alzheimer’s disease research to various audiences across Canada and internationally. From these presentations, A Report on Alzheimer’s Disease and Current Research has been created. The purpose of this report is to provide people who are not scientists or clinicians with easy to understand information on Alzheimer’s disease, including risk factors, how researchers decide on the most promising ways to search for new treatments and where we stand in the search for a cure. To keep pace with the rapid advances in research, this report is updated periodically. This report focuses on the advancements made in biomedical research. A new companion report (in preparation) focuses on the equally important Social/Psychological research, which addresses the day-to-day issues that impact the quality of life for people with Alzheimer’s disease, their caregivers and their families. This companion report will be available in the spring of 2008.
