en and AlzGene.org will allow for the reliable prediction of Alzheimer's disease while also guiding the development of therapies."

Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia in the elderly and a burgeoning unmet medical need that only will worsen as individuals continue to live longer. The Alzheimer's Association estimates that as many as 5.2 million Americans are living with Alzheimer's disease, including between 200,000 and 500,000 people under age 65 with young-onset Alzheimer's disease or other dementias. Experts predict that, by 2010, nearly a half million new cases of Alzheimer's disease will occur each year; and by 2050, nearly a million new cases will occur annually.

Cure Alzheimer's Fund has no endowment and passes funds raised directly to selected research as determined by the Cure Alzheimer's Research Consortium. The Foundation has no financial or intellectual property interest in the research funded, and will make known the results of all funded research as soon as possible. At a time when the federal government investment for Alzheimer's research and education is decreasing, Cure Alzheimer's Fund has raised more than $10 million, investing all of it directly into research.

Cure Alzheimer's Fund(TM) is a 501c3 public charity established to fund targeted research with the highest probability of slowing, stopping or reversing Alzheimer's disease. For more information, please visit http://www.curealzfund.org.
