‘Path to 2025’ Alzheimer’s Disease Summit: Reforms Urgently Needed to Streamline Road to Alzheimer’s Prevention and Treatment as Global Prevalence is Set to Triple
Date:11/6/2013

it comments and evaluation by the Alzheimer’s experts at the Summit. A final version of the report will be published in Annals of the New York Academy of Sciences in early 2014, and is intended to serve as a further stimulus for action among stakeholders in the Alzheimer’s field.

As the report draft delineates, rapid action is sorely needed. “Alzheimer’s disease is a global emergency. It robs people of dignity in their final years and takes a debilitating toll on national economies,” says New York Academy of Sciences President and CEO Ellis Rubinstein. “Progress in developing new therapies has been unacceptably slow, and so we must rethink how Alzheimer’s research is carried out so that we can accelerate our understanding of what causes this complex disease.”

“Global leadership and collaboration across business and government are essential to drive coordinated action, promote rapid innovation, and spur the focus needed to achieve a means of prevention and effective diagnosis, treatment, and care for Alzheimer’s and dementia,” says George Vradenburg, Convener of the CEOi. “The inefficiencies in the current drug development system can be addressed and we can meet the goal of stopping Alzheimer’s by 2025.”

Alzheimer’s disease and other dementias currently affect more than 35 million people worldwide, with 2010 global expenditures alone reaching more than US $600 billion. The burden of Alzheimer’s disease is projected to rise steeply as the number of people living with it roughly doubles by 2035, and triples by 2060, because of aging populations worldwide. Despite numerous large-scale drug trials, a treatment to slow or stop the progression of Alzheimer’s has thus far proven elusive, and current therapies treat symptoms in limited populations for short periods of time. Recognizing the global implications of this crisis, the G8 is preparing for its first-ever meeting on dementia in London in December 2013.
