These are the Genes Responsible for Alzheimer’sMatthew M. Sullivan
Geneticists at the MRC Center at Cardiff University are working hard to determine the cause of Alzheimer’s disease on a molecular level. In fact, their most recent study was able to identify eleven genes that affect a person’s risk for developing Alzheimer’s!
Find out more about the study, and what they’re working on next in the video below.
Alzheimer’s continues to grow costlier, and the prevalence of this tragic disease only continues to grow.
Many American elders depend on Medicare for coverage of treatment they need during their golden years, but Medicare does not cover long-term care for Alzheimer’s leaving family and loved ones to shoulder a care burden currently estimated to be worth over $217 billion.
This cannot continue!
You can help America’s Alzheimer’s patients by signing our petition demanding Medicare step up and cover 100% of long-term care for any person with Alzheimer’s or other dementias whose doctor has recommended it.
