"More research is definitely needed," Brodaty continued, "on topics such as how genetic and environment factors interact. For now, the best evidence we have for Alzheimer's prevention points to regular physical exercise, ongoing mental activity and blood pressure control. In general, what is good for your heart is good for your brain."

Emerging Treatment For Alzheimer's

Speaking immediately after Dr. Brodaty, Bengt Winblad, MD PhD, Professor of Geriatric Medicine at the Karolinska Institutet, Stockholm, Sweden and Chief Physician at Karolinska University in Huddinge will talk about "Emerging treatment for Alzheimer disease."

Winblad, an experienced leader of clinical trials, will discuss the progress of a number of drugs currently in the pipeline for Alzheimer's and dementia, including:

  • A new approach targeting mitochondrial function that has very positive early results.
  • Passive and active "vaccination" (immunotherapy) studies currently being performed.
  • Delivery of growth factors directly to the brain.

In addition, he will update attendees on the development and validation of biomarkers (a) to support the clinical diagnosis of Alzheimer's and dementia and (b) as indicators to follow treatment effects for disease modifying drugs.
