Abstract:   (638 Views)

Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a major cause of disability and death. Nowadays, it does not only affect the older population, but also occurs at a very early age (<50 years). Recently, there has been a case finding of the youngest probable AD patient, at the age of 19 years. This calls for a prompt intervention in order to prevent the development of early onset AD in the wider population. Public health measures, accompanied by research projects on the basic, translational, and clinical aspects of the disease, are of crucial importance and must be undertaken and implemented within the global community.
