December 2006 (Medialink) - The New England Journal of Medicine published a study on December 20 on a new brain imaging technique that researchers found to be highly accurate in detecting Alzheimer's disease and differentiating it from natural brain aging - a key clinical step in the early assessment of the disease. Researchers at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) who conducted the study will now work with Siemens Medical Solutions to open clinical trials of the imaging agent as a first step towards making this technology available to patients. The imaging agent is the first such marker designed to identify Alzheimer's disease pathology specifically, and differentiate it from normal aging. Currently, the only way to confirm Alzheimer's disease is through autopsy. However, this new imaging marker is designed to be injected into the bloodstream, and seek out Alzheimer's-specific protein deposits in the brain, causing them to light up under an imaging technology called positron emission tomography (PET). -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Produced for Siemens Medical Solutions

Alzheimer's Disease Research (ADR) has granted two Centennial Awards of one million dollars each to Dr. Bradley T. Hyman of Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston and Dr. Donald F. Weaver of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia, Canada. The researchers were chosen through a competitive peer review process that began in 2006, marking 100 years since Dr. Alois Alzheimer described this disease. ADR's Centennial Awards will foster innovative, multidisciplinary research, aimed at slowing or reversing the progression of, and ultimately preventing, this devastating brain disorder.

When you ask Howard Ulene to sum up what it's like to live with Alzheimer's disease there's no hesitation. Howard Ulene, Alzheimer's disease patient, drug trial participant: "In one word, forgetfulness and in many words forgetfulness." Once a savvy businessman, Howard Ulene is now using his entrepreneurial spirit to battle the disease. Howard Ulene, Alzheimer's disease patient, drug trial participant: "What you have to do is get over the fear and be very maudlin and poignant about it and then say I’m going to beat you SOB because I simply won’t except this limited life." About two years ago Howard joined a clinical drug trial for Alzheimer's disease. The drug he received, now known as Flurizan, has just entered phase three of the drug trial. Sam Gandy, M.D., Alzheimer's Association: "Making it to phase three is really unprecedented and these are medicines the likes of which we've never seen before. I think the chances of hitting something successful in the next five years are very good." There are nine new Alzheimer's treatments in phase three trials-the final step before FDA approval. All offering hope to either slow down or prevent the onset of Alzheimer's. Sam Gandy, M.D., Alzheimer's Association: "There are several steps leading from the beginning of the disease to what we see clinically, and what we hope to do is aim a different bullet, aim a different medicine at each of those steps." For Howard, the improvement from taking Flurizan has been tremendous. Art Ulene, M.D., brother: "His results in this clinical trial have been absolutely stunning. I got my brother back. I got the guy I knew as my brother back, he’s not perfect, but the old Howard is back and now able to communicate." As with any phase three trial, the results aren't final until the study ends and data are analyzed. I'm Mary Norton reporting.

During my grandfather's last few days at home before his admission into an assisted living home geared towards Alzheimer's patients, I made a short documentary. The video shows the dementia in a humorous, factual, and heart-touching way. Symptoms of dementia are listed throughout the video along with examples from my grandfather. My grandfather has since passed.

Chicago – With the continued aging of the population and the growing epidemic of Alzheimer’s, early detection of the disease is crucial for risk assessment, testing new therapies, and eventual early intervention with better drugs, once they are developed. Four studies reported today at the Alzheimer’s Association’s 2008 International Conference on Alzheimer’s Disease (ICAD 2008) in Chicago bring us closer to that goal of early detection by describing advances in biomarkers. A biomarker is a substance or characteristic that can be objectively measured and evaluated as an indicator of normal body processes, disease processes, or the body’s response(s) to a therapeutic intervention. It is widely believed that Alzheimer’s disease brain changes, including amyloid plaques and neurofibrillary tangles, begin many years before symptoms are evident or there is significant death of brain cells. It is critical to identify affected individuals while they are still cognitively normal so that future disease modifying therapies can preserve normal function. The testing and eventual use of such therapies requires identification of affected and “at risk” individuals in order to steer them to clinical trials, and to direct and monitor therapy.

Imagine what it’s like to forget how to do what you’ve always done and known. To have your mind playing tricks on you every day. Imagine not remembering where you parked your car, or worse still, not remembering who your wife or husband is. It’s a terrible feeling, which creates a lot of anxiety, confusion and frustration, to say the least. It’s Alzheimer’s, and unfortunately is often diagnosed much later than need be. To raise awareness of Alzheimer’s signs and stages, Colenso BDDO Auckland have brought to life the way that Alzheimer’s works, through a series of Candid Camera style tv ads.
