Alzheimer’s disease is currently the sixth leading cause of death in the United States. While data indicates nearly six million Americans currently live with the disease, some estimates suggest that number could triple by 2060, causing yearly treatment costs in the hundreds of billions of dollars.
What innovations show the most promise for early detection and treatment for this disease that takes a crushing toll on patients, their loved ones and caregivers?
