After participating in this educational activity, participants should be better able to:
- Contrast how the slowing of Aβ plaques, as shown in recent clinical trial endpoints of slowing cognitive decline with immunotherapies, differs from current standard of care results in Alzheimer’s disease (AD)
- Recognize the positive impacts of earlier identification of AD in slowing the course of the disease
- Analyze how the mechanisms of action of newer investigational therapies relate to the molecular mechanisms that drive AD progression
- Analyze biomarkers for functional impairment, neuronal loss, and protein deposition that are assessable by neuroimaging or cerebrospinal fluid analysis for diagnosis, staging, and treatment outcomes
- Compare the monoclonal antibodies currently under study to treat AD
- Evaluate new agents that may be appropriate for patients with mild cognitive impairment (ie, the role of imaging)
This activity is designed to meet the educational needs of neurologists, primary care physicians, and other healthcare professionals that diagnose and treat patients with Alzheimer’s Disease.
