Studies Presented at International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease Reveal Substantial Economic Costs and Caregiver Burden Associated with Alzheimer's Disease
Date:7/14/2009

VIENNA, Austria, July 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Elan Corporation, plc (NYSE: ELN) and Wyeth (NYSE: WYE) presented information this week at the Alzheimer Association 2009 International Conference on Alzheimer's Disease (ICAD 2009) from seven posters and one podium presentation about the growing burden of care and costs associated with Alzheimer's disease (AD) and how to measure them. This information sheds light on the impact of AD, which, as the population ages, will place a significant and increasing burden on patients, families, and caregivers, as well as public health systems worldwide. The costs of Alzheimer's disease are difficult to estimate, highlighting the importance of the information presented.

"These analyses provide important information - in some cases for the first time - about the associations between AD and the health and wellbeing of patients, healthcare costs, and the burden on caregivers," said study investigator, Daniel Murman, M.D., M.S., Associate Professor and Director, Memory Disorders and Behavior Neurology Program with the Department of Neurological Sciences at the University of Nebraska Medical Center. "This information shows that not only are AD patients more likely than their peers to suffer from other serious conditions, but their needed care takes a tremendous toll on their caregivers. All of this means increased burden and financial costs to individuals and the healthcare system."
