Alzheimer’s Diagnosis and Clinical Trials

As we learned in the first episode of UCTV Prime’s “Heartache & Hope: America’s Alzheimer’s Epidemic,” projections for Alzheimer’s disease and other forms of dementia are alarming, with a new diagnosis every 68 seconds and an annual cost of $1.2 trillion projected by 2050.

But not all of the news is bad. The second installment assesses the progress UCLA researchers have made in understanding the disease, and highlights some promising clinical trials and diagnosis techniques that could slow its progression, possibly the first step towards prevention and cure.
