Alzheimer's Caregivers: Update on Early Diagnosis 13. August 2010 0 Senior Caregiving, Caregiver Jobs, Caregiving Issues, Memory Loss (0) Alzheimer's disease research has moved forward with the coordination of multiple organizations and companies to share research data. The Alzheimer's Disease Neuroimaging Initiative was developed about 10 years ago between two longtime friends. One worked for the National Institute on Aging and the other for a pharmaceutical company. Bringing together the many different researchers and companies has resulted in identifying biomarkers to diagnose the early stages of the disease, with the hope of developing ways to prevent or treat Alzheimer's disease. Caregivers for seniors with memory loss can keep up on the latest findings and learn about clinical drug studies which might be appropriate.
