  • New neuroimaging and biomarkers in MCI and AD initiative
    August 1, 2003

    A new National Institute on Aging (NIA) initiative will launch a multi-year neuroimaging study using serial magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans to examine how brains change as mild cognitive...

  • Alzheimer's disease and end-of-life issues
    August 1, 2003

    Despite our best research efforts, Alzheimer's disease remains incurable. Researchers are using sophisticated technologies to pinpoint how AD progressively steals memories and destroys personality; and yet, AD remains irreversible....

  • End-of-life legal instruments
    August 1, 2003

    What sets Alzheimer's disease apart from many other terminal diseases is the progressive, irreversible loss of cognitive abilities, which begins early and becomes increasingly worse. The majority of patients arrive at the later stages...

  • NIA expands genetics research: Families with multiple AD cases sought
    December 1, 2002

    The National Institute on Aging (NIA) is accelerating the pace of Alzheimer's disease genetics research with a major new initiative to speed the process of creating a large repository of DNA and cell lines from families with multiple...

  • Genes and their functions
    December 1, 2002

    A gene provides the code, or blueprint, for the type and order of amino acids needed to build a specific protein. Everything in the body is made up of proteins. Bones and teeth, muscles and blood, for example, are formed from different...
