<![CDATA["Alzheimer's: Every Minute Counts" Documentary]]>Tue, 24 Jan 2017 21:46:28 GMThttp://princetonmedicalinstitute.com/events-and-announcements/alzheimers-every-minute-counts-documentaryEvery Minute Counts – PBS Documentary
On Wednesday, January 25, 2017, at 10 pm ET, PBS will air a 60-minute documentary called "Alzheimer's: Every Minute Counts," which aims to illuminate the social and economic consequences for the country unless a medical breakthrough is discovered for this currently incurable disease. With power and passion, the documentary weaves together expert commentary with compelling personal stories filmed around the country that represent previews of the future happening today. Forming the backbone of the documentary is the story of Daisy Duarte, who is a caregiver for her mom who has early-onset Alzheimer's as well as a carrier of the gene indicating she will likely have an early-onset Alzheimer's diagnosis of her own. Daisy is a caregiver advocate for UsAgainstAlzheimer's Latino Network. The documentary is an urgent wake-up call about the national threat posed by Alzheimer's disease.

The Alzheimer’s disease treatment market is expected to double from around $5 billion to $10 billion by 2021 as the disease becomes more prevalent and people live longer. A factor in the growth of this market is the drug pipelines of the world’s major pharmaceutical companies. New drugs currently in the clinical trial phase, such as verubecestat, aducanumab and azeliragon, have demonstrated clinical benefit and are likely to be approved during the forecast period, supplementing current available drugs and offering greater therapeutic options for patients. Global Business Intelligence Research notes that a drug that actually slows the progression of Alzheimer's or dementia would easily become a blockbuster drug, with sales of at least $1 billion annually, due to an unmet medical need.

<![CDATA[The Power of Music in Alleviating Dementia Symptoms]]>Fri, 29 Jan 2016 19:57:54 GMThttp://princetonmedicalinstitute.com/events-and-announcements/the-power-of-music-in-alleviating-dementia-symptomsIn findings published in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease, music coaching interventions led by caregivers (singing or listening to music) improved outcomes for both patients with dementia and their caregivers. Results demonstrated that the interventions improved working memory and general cognition among patients with mild dementia and led to reductions in depression. Study co-author Teppo Särkämö, PhD, a researcher at theUniversity of Helsinki, Finland, told Psychiatry Advisor, “music has the power to improve mood and stimulate cognitive functions in dementia, most likely by engaging limbic and medial prefrontal brain regions, which are often preserved in the early stages of the illness. The results indicate that when used regularly, caregiver-implemented musical activities can be an important and easily applicable way to maintain the emotional and cognitive well-being of persons with dementia and also to reduce the psychological burden of family caregivers.”

<![CDATA[Movement in Children with ADHD May Help Them Think and Perform Better in School]]>Wed, 14 Oct 2015 14:12:23 GMThttp://princetonmedicalinstitute.com/events-and-announcements/movement-in-children-with-adhd-may-help-them-think-and-perform-better-in-schoolPicture
A study by researchers with the UC Davis MIND Institute has found the constant movement of children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may improve their cognitive performance. The study of pre-teens and teenagers with ADHD examined how movement, its intensity and frequency, correlated with accuracy on cognitively demanding tasks requiring good attention. It found that participants who moved more intensely exhibited substantially better cognitive performance. To learn more about this study, Click Here.
