Picture a person living with Alzheimer’s disease. Many living with the disease may not be who you’re imagining. Alzheimer’s can look like anyone you know—your neighbor, uncle, co-worker, friend. Many with early-stage Alzheimer’s are still working, enjoying trips and sharing quality time with family. They’re still living independent lives. That’s valuable time to prolong as much as possible.​

Time is Worth Fighting For

Alzheimer's disease progresses slowly over 10-20 years.1,2 During that time, people can have a spectrum of symptoms, from non-symptomatic (preclinical) Alzheimer’s to severe dementia.3 As the disease progresses, Alzheimer’s impacts day-to-day life more and more. It interferes with a person’s routines, relationships, hobbies and, ultimately, their independence.

The scientific advancements that are emerging, and on the horizon, require a timely, accurate diagnosis. At the first sign of changes in memory or thinking, people should see their doctor for an assessment. If someone is diagnosed too late, that can impact the potential effectiveness of approved treatment options.

Scientific Advancements Have Potential to Provide New Hope

People living with Alzheimer’s don’t have time to waste. We’re taking on Alzheimer’s from every angle: advancing the science that could lead to breakthrough therapies; discovering new ways to find timely and accurate diagnoses; and partnering across our industry and beyond to work with more speed.

Through ongoing clinical trials and cutting-edge research, we’re urgently developing potential treatments and tools to help slow disease progression. It’s all with the hope to give people something invaluable: more options that could potentially provide more time.

Better Access, More Possibilities

While we’re not where we want to be—with a cure for Alzheimer’s disease—we’re making significant progress. Science has advanced to provide better diagnostic tools and treatments. But we also need this innovation to reach people living with Alzheimer’s.

That means healthcare providers need to have conversations sooner to better check for signs and symptoms of the disease. People need access to the tools that help accurately diagnose their problems with memory and thinking and the potential causes. And people living with Alzheimer’s and their families need to have appropriate reimbursements for the tools and approved treatments that may provide them more quality time.

It’s crucial for stakeholders—industry, government, healthcare, and advocates—to work together to strengthen our system’s capacity to address these issues.
