Reisa Sperling, MD, provides an overview on Alzheimer's disease dementia and a new groundbreaking study, the Anti-Amyloid Treatment in Asymptomatic Alzheimer's Disease (A4) Study. The A4 Study is the first study to examine early treatment of older adults at risk for Alzheimer's disease dementia -- with the hope of preventing memory loss before it begins. The clinical trial is for people without symptoms but whose brain scans show the buildup of amyloid plaques that may lead to Alzheimer's disease. Dennis Selkoe, MD from Brigham and Women's Hospital, led research that discovered that buildup in the brain of the amyloid protein is largely responsible for the degenerative effects of Alzheimer's disease.
Dr. Sperling is the Director of the Center for Alzheimer Research and Treatment at Brigham and Women's Hospital and the lead investigator for the A4 Study.
Dr. Selkoe is Co-Director of the Center for Neurologic Diseases at Brigham and Women's Hospital.
