Research related to Alzheimer’s Disease is making progress. We have gained considerable knowledge in the past two decades, with Canadian researchers at the forefront. They give us hope for tomorrow. In honor of the great work that’s been done, this website explores various aspects of research and the hope of a world without Alzheimer’s disease.
It has been over a century since the identification of Alzheimer’s disease. Once considered a normal part of aging, it is now a known disease with treatments and help for those affected. In this video, you can see how Sunnybrook scientists made history when they used ultrasound to temporarily breach blood-brain barriers in a clinical trial:
Those affected by Alzheimer’s disease should know that Alzheimer research is currently more promising than it has ever been in the past. We now know a great deal about the chain of events within the brain that leads to Alzheimer’s disease. At every point in that chain, there is an opportunity to stop the process and prevent the disease.
