Alzheimer’s Disease

It is estimated that around 44 million people globally have Alzheimer's or a related dementia. Alzheimer's disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disease that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually even the ability to carry out the simplest tasks of daily living. In most people with Alzheimer's, symptoms first appear after age 60. Although treatment can help manage symptoms in some people, currently there is no cure.

Novartis is currently conducting a clinical trial program targeting cognitively healthy individuals at risk to develop symptoms of Alzheimer’s disease.
