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. This virtual poster hall activity 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. It will also review the current understanding of the pathophysiology of AD and the latest evidence-based strategies for an early and accurate diagnosis.
