Amidst the heartbreak of Alzheimer’s disease, there is real reason for hope. This program goes inside the labs and clinics of 25 leading scientists and physicians who are seeking to discover how to better detect and diagnose the disease, delay the onset of memory loss, affect the brain changes associated with the disease, and ultimately prevent the disease altogether. Alzheimer’s hallmark beta-amyloid plaques and tau tangles are investigated, as well as relationships between Alzheimer’s and vascular disease, diabetes, inflammation, genetics, exercise, and nutrition. Advanced imaging and diagnostic technologies and vaccine clinical trials are also discussed.
