Prof. Dr. Mathias Jucker: Wieso wir noch keine Alzheimer-Therapie haben
The risk of developing Alzheimer's increases with age. Today we know that there are changes in the brain many years before the first symptoms of Alzheimer's. What are these changes and is it important to recognize such changes early on? The first drugs that slow down the progression of the disease have been approved in the USA, but does this also apply to Germany? The lecture familiarizes you with current research and the latest scientific findings on Alzheimer's disease.
