Alzheimer’s Disease Research Summit – 2
Narrator: This is NIH Health Matters. I’m Joe Balintfy. The NIH hosted an Alzheimer’s disease summit to kick-off the National Alzheimer’s Act. Dr. Neil Buckholts at the NIH says, the goal is finding a cure for Alzheimer’s disease by 2025.
Buckholtz: And what we would like to do with this summit meeting is to think about new ways of developing and testing treatments for Alzheimer's disease that will affect both the symptoms of the disease as well as modify the course of the disease, that is slow down the course.
Narrator: He points out that no new treatments have been approved by the FDA since the early 2000s. For details on Alzheimer’s disease, visit www.nia.nih.gov. Health Matters is produced by the National Institutes of Health, part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
