"this gives us hope that at least in the future, she'll be the same person as we have now." every minute.. someone in america is
comes disease, and every minute someone in the u-s develops alzheimer's. there hasn't been an effective drug to fight the disease in more than a decade, but there's something very exciting going on here in las vegas. john huck spoke with a researcher who says 20-16 will be a turning point in the fight against alzheimer's.
gene therapy called adu-canu-mab. it's shown the most promise of any alzheimer's drug to stop the disease dead in it's tracks. it's best use is on those in the earlier stages of the disease. "the point of aducanumab is to stop the decline rather than to produce an improvement and that would be a great victory." how does it work? amaloid protein or plaque builds up in the brains of alzheimer's patients.. destroying memory and basic functions coded into the brain. aducanumab triggers the body's immune break up the plaque. this is the only drug so far that has eliminated the plaque from the brains of alzheimer's patients. "this is plaque that's killing brain cells? this is the plaque that's killing the brain cells. dr. cummings showed us mri's from patients taken before and after treatment... see the reddish areas? that's the plaque.. the higher the dose of aducanumab... the more plaque was wiped out. "and at the end of 1 year, using the highest does, the scan is actually
effects? there are side effects. because it's pulling the proten out of the blood vessel, it sometimes allows fluid to leak out of the blood vessel. and we're not sure if that's injurious to the brain or not but we're concerened about it and we're watching it very, very closely in the patients. there has not been an effective alzheimer's drug brought to market in over a decade and the stakes could not be higher. aducanunab is near the top of only a handful of drugs that have any chance to make it to patients in the next ten years. by that time nevada could shoot up by as much as 80 percent. the cost to treat patients nationwide by the middle of the century would be a trillion dollars a year. of course, our economy cannot absorb a trillion dollars a year in costs "so this is a tsunami that's coming, all of these people are alive, developing the earliest stages of alzhiemers and we have to develop new drugs if we're going to manage that tidal wave of patients that are coming towards us. a white-haired tsunami? a white-
husband dick, aducanumab may be their last hope for arresting the disease in its tracks. vicki's short-term memory is gone but her long-term memory is in tact that's where the couple hopes to stop alzheimer's. "does that feel comfortable for you?" vicki is enrolled in the emerge trial. once a month she takes an hour long infusion of... something. it could be aducanumab, it could be a placebo. the couple is somewhat optimistic because vicki hasn't shown any more signs of decline. but given alzheimer's tenacity... the couple realistic. "it's frightening, very frightening. this gives us hope that at least in the future, she'll be the same person as we have now." "i have to keep focusing on what's in front of me and unless some miracle happens, it probably will progress to a certain degree but i'll do whatever is offered to me to try to get better." vicki and thousands like her could be leading researchers to the first drug to attack the cause of alzheimer's, with the hopes of turning alzhiemer's into a manageable disease.. not the butcher of memories and dignity that it is now. john huck fox5 news
