How and when does Alzheimer’s Disease start? (Part one)

When we think about Alzheimer’s Disease, many of us have an image in our heads of an older person who’s there one day and starting to be gone the next.

But as clinical researchers start to understand more about the earlier stages of the disease, there’s new understanding about how it starts and in turn, how we may one day be able to slow its onset or even stop it altogether.

Dr Robert Prowse from the Royal Adelaide Hospital’s Memory clinic talks about how Alzheimer’s Disease progresses and how researchers hope to be able to get in earlier than ever before…

Research is underway in Australia and New Zealand to investigate the very earliest signs of Alzheimer’s Disease. If you, or someone you know is encountering small, annoying memory lapses from time to time, you could refer them to our Memory Quiz. It’s a few short questions which will determine whether you or they qualify to take part in a new clinical research trial into early memory loss – a further step forward in Alzheimer’s research.
