ear Medicine and Molecular Imaging (SNMMI) for brain amyloid imaging using positron emission tomography (PET) as a tool for Alzheimer's diagnosis.

The modifications were sent to CMS in advance of recent (July 3) draft decision, where the agency agreed to cover one PET scan per person to exclude Alzheimer's in very limited circumstances. The Alzheimer's Association will continue to engage the scientific and healthcare communities, as well as advocates, to educate CMS on behalf of our constituents about the benefits of coverage for brain amyloid imaging -- in limited populations as defined by the scientifically-driven appropriate use criteria -- as CMS develops a final decision.

The Alzheimer's Association and Its Global Public-Private Partnerships

"Leveraging Global Resources to End the Alzheimer's Pandemic," an editorial by Carrillo in the journal, looks back toward past research initiatives and forward toward the organization's current and future public-private research partnerships. Carrillo notes that the publication of the historic "Five-Five, Ten-Ten Plan for Alzheimer's Disease" editorial in 1992 inspired decades of fruitful Alzheimer's research and collaboration among academia, industry, government, and patient-family advocacy groups. One of the most significant breakthroughs resulting from this joint effort, she writes, was the development of amyloid imaging, which "holds great promise for research and clinical practice." Another has been the coming together of researchers, clinicians, and regulators to establish new diagnostic criteria and promote the development of early-stage therapies.

Carrillo reviews the Alzheimer's Association's current global public-private partnerships. These include the Worldwide Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (WW-ADNI), in which investigators from many different nations are extending the work of the original North American ADNI in investigating new imaging techniques and biomarkers
