Industry Reviews "The brain has a marvelous power to muster up its own internal medicine to prevent Alzheimer's disease.
With new brain imaging, we can detect the amyloid plaque. Beta-amyloid is from a larger protein found in fatty membrane that surrounds nerve cells. It is considered a sticky chemical that builds into damaging groups, plaques, that clump together and block cell-to-cell activity. And we are expecting to be able to offer a vaccine to people whose brain imaging identifies amyloid plaque.
And Dr. Over time, early detection will yield the biggest payoff. With mild forms of dementia, there seems to be agreement among physicians that medications work. However, Dr. There are two categories of cognitive enhancers currently available in the United States. The cholinesterase inhibitors are Food and Drug Administration approved for mild dementia and beyond.
Memantine Namenda is indicated for moderate dementia and beyond. With patients who take medication, researchers have found a small but significant reduction in the burden carried by caregivers. Ellison stressed that these medications are not given in isolation. There appears to be a movement to cut down on medication in nursing homes, especially drugs that over-sedate or the antipsychotics.
But this debate differs from the memory drugs. However, there are physicians today who believe that once a patient is in a nursing home, there is no longer a need for memory enhancing drugs. We are trying to lower the amyloid and improve cognitive function, which is one reason for these our trials. We need to be planning combination treatment trials to maximize the therapeutic impact. Researchers will have to be creative and collaborate in order to foster an innovative environment. In the world of memory, many people are concerned about the here and now.
For those who wonder what can be done today, Dr. Take advantage of leisure time, socializing and connecting with others. Dementia statistics Accessed Jun 7.
