Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is an irreversible, age-related, neurodegenerative disorder characterized by gradual decline in understanding, memory, and ability to perform activities of daily living. Current therapies delay cognitive decline in some patients, but they do not treat the underlying causes of the disease nor do they halt the progression of the disease. Despite the significant burden on patients, there remains no approved disease-modifying therapy to treat patients with AD. In this program, expert faculty will provide guidance on the mechanisms of action, clinical endpoints, and latest clinical evidence regarding new and emerging agents for the treatment of patients with AD. They will also discuss the current understanding of the pathophysiology of AD; the latest evidence-based strategies for an early and accurate diagnosis; as well as the role of multidisciplinary, collaborative-care models for the management of patients with AD.
