Seminal events in 2012 Alzheimer's disease research evaluated at international conference
Date:10/25/2012

Monte Carlo, Monaco (October 25, 2012) The 5th International Conference on Clinical Trials for Alzheimer's Disease (CTAD) will provide the stage for a closer examination of the unexpected outcomes of Phase 3 treatment trials with some encouraging findings this year the first such results in the Alzheimer's field in almost a decade. The 2012 program will also analyze building evidence that can help focus global research dollars and priorities, namely that detecting AD years, even decades, before clinical symptoms appear offers the best opportunity for current and new drugs to work.

Researchers will also discuss important goals in worldwide AD research, including improving early detection and accurate diagnosis methods, harmonization of imaging techniques across patient populations, identifying factors that affect AD progression, and advancement in AD biomarkers. Chairing the conference are Paul Aisen, MD, University of California at San Diego; Jacques Touchon, MD, University of Montpellier; Bruno Vellas, MD, University of Toulouse; and Michael Weiner, MD, University of California at San Francisco.

Since its debut in Montpellier, France in 2008, CTAD has maintained its unique role in AD research as an intimate professional forum for the world's preeminent clinical researchers to share ideas and foster international collaboration toward progress in a disease that threatens the health of all nations and is soon expected to become the single largest health care expense for many. Alzheimer's is a progressive and ultimately fatal neurodegenerative disease that today affects more than 35 million individuals, robbing them of their memory, independence, and ability to think and understand. By 2050, the number of people with AD is expected to exceed 115 million worldwide if nothing is done to slow or prevent the disease.

"The research presented at CTAD and the very nature of the meeting are critical to creating a clear path for global resear
