This Viewpoint describes setbacks in trials of disease-modifying therapies for Alzheimer disease and describes options for future research and clinical care.
ConclusionsWe examined the usefulness of voxel-based statistical analysis for amyloid PET. This method provides objectiveZ-score maps andZ-sum values, which were observed to be helpful as an adjunct to visual interpretation especially for cases with mild or limited A β accumulation. This approach could improve the Aβ detection sensitivity, reduce inter-reader variability, and allow for detailed monitoring of Aβ deposition.Trial registrationThe number of the J-ADNI study isUMIN000001374
A proof-of-concept study shows regular aerobic exercise may prevent or slow cognitive decline in older adults at risk for Alzheimer's.
Grants for research on the outcomes of care for persons with Alzheimer's disease and related dementia by identifying home- and community-based services used, as well as barriers to accessing care and unmet needs. Explaining geographic disparities, such as urban versus rural, in access to and quality of care is a suggested research topic.

This study brings us one step closer toward teasing out the effects in people with biomarker defined Alzheimer’s.” While the study results must be replicated in much larger studies, Zhang suggested that anyone concerned about cognitive decline or Alzheimer’s consider adding exercise to their daily lives. While it’s best to start exercising early in life, he said, “it is not too late to receive the benefits of exercise even late in life when there are already amyloid clumps in the brain.” The-CNN-Wire &© 2019 Cable News Network, Inc., a Time Warner Company.
