Diagnosis, treatment and useful products.
Welcome To Alzheimer Solutions!
I became interested in Alzheimer's disease in 1990, when my father was diagnosed with the disease. He had been losing weight since 1988. Looking back, the early weight loss was the first sign of Alzheimer's disease.
When Dad was diagnosed with the disease, I began spending hours in medical libraries. I hoped, through library research, to find a "cure" for Dad.
The magic "cure" never came. Dad died of Alzheimer's a few days before Christmas,on December 18, 1993. Christmas, once a joyous holiday for me,is now always a bit sad.
Dad's death inspired me to return to graduate school. I earned a master's level Certificate in Gerontology. I earned a certification in laboratory Biotechnology. In 1999, I founded Alzheimer Solutions,a small private company, devoted to alzheimer research and caregiver education.
At my Alzheimer Solutions laboratory, I am searching for compounds that will benefit alzheimer patients. When I discover a helpful compound, I intend to make it non-commercial and turn it over to someone who will distribute it to all who need it.
I am also trying to help caregivers. They need to know where to find helpful resources. The Memory Clinic and Adult Day Care sections on this web site will help caregivers find needed help and resources. More resource listings are planned,including a searchable database for medical professionals.

Alzheimer's Disease Fact Sheet
Download this fact sheet as a PDF Contents
Dementia is a brain disorder that seriously affects a person's ability to carry out daily activities. The most common form of dementia among older people is Alzheimer's disease (AD), which involves the parts of the brain that control thought, memory, and language. Although scientists are learning more every day, right now they still do not know what causes AD, and there is no cure. Scientists think that as many as 4.5 million Americans suffer from AD. The disease usually begins after age 60, and risk goes up with age. While younger people also may get AD, it is much less common. About 5 percent of men and women ages 65 to 74 have AD, and nearly half of those age 85 and older may have the disease. It is important to note, however, that AD is not a normal part of aging. AD is named after Dr. Alois Alzheimer, a German doctor. In 1906, Dr. Alzheimer noticed changes in the brain tissue of a woman who had died of an unusual mental illness. He found abnormal clumps (now called amyloid plaques) and tangled bundles of fibers (now called neurofibrillary tangles). Today, these plaques and tangles in the brain are considered signs of AD.

Alzheimer's Disease Overview
General Health Newsletter Alzheimer's Disease Health News
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a progressive disease of the brain that is characterized by impairment of memory and a disturbance in at least one other thinking function (for example, language or perception of reality). Many scientists believe that AD results from an increase in the production or accumulation of a specific protein (beta-amyloid protein) that leads to nerve cell death. Loss of nerve cells in strategic brain areas, in turn, causes deficits in the neurotransmitters, which are the brain's chemical messengers. For more, read the Alzheimer's Disease article.

    Test of Alzheimer's vaccine in mice shows promise
    July 7, 1999 Web posted at: 11:09 p.m. EDT (0309 GMT) From staff and wire reports (CNN) An experimental vaccine shows promise in reducing brain deposits linked to Alzheimer's disease in mice suggesting the substance might one day be used to treat humans suffering from the debilitating disorder. Scientists at Elan Pharmaceuticals developed the vaccine, called AN-1792. It is designed to attack the characteristic plaques found in the brains of Alzheimer's sufferers, which are caused by a sticky protein called amyloid. "We view the plaque, if you will, as an invader in the brain, and we were curious to know if we would treat this as though it was any other type of invader, such as a bacteria, and thus use a vaccination approach," said Dr. Ivan Lieberburg of Elan Pharmaceuticals.
