First identified as a disease process
in the early 1900s, today Alzheimer’s
disease (AD) looms as a public health
crisis. In 2000, an estimated 4.5 million
persons in the United States had
mild, moderate, or severe AD; this figure could grow to 13.2 million by
2050. Peter V. Rabins, MD, MPH,
brought together a group of experts to
discuss ways to better diagnose and
more effectively treat this rapidly
As the population ages and survival
rates increase for patients with AD, not
only will the number of persons with
the disease increase rapidly, said Neill
Graff-Radford, MB BCh, FRCP, but
also the age distribution of persons
with AD will change.
