Alzheimer's Disease

About Alzheimer's Disease

Alzheimer's Disease is a chronic neurodegenerative disease and is represented in 60-70% of cases of dementia. In 2015, there were approximately 29.8 million people worldwide living with AD. It affects around 6% of people aged 65+ years. There are currently no treatments to halt or reverse its progression. There is significant ongoing research to better understand and treat AD. IXICO has supported important AD research since 2007 and continues to assist many pharmaceutical companies in their search for novel therapies
