New and Emerging Therapies for Alzheimer Disease
An Interactive Learning ExperienceThis course is hosted by an external partner. By clicking Launch Course, you will be directed off of Pri-Med.com. Upon completing the activity, you will be prompted to return to Pri-Med.com
In this AdaptED learning module, the adaptive learning algorithm will employ Alzheimer disease (AD) neuropathology as a backdrop to explore various promising mechanisms of action for new and emerging disease-modifying therapies, such as those targeting β-amyloid, tau, inflammation, central nervous system glucose metabolism, bioenergetics, and synaptic plasticity. The activity will focus on anti-amyloid antibodies in late phases of development, under FDA review, or that have recently received an FDA indication to treat AD. The education will dive into the clinical efficacy, safety, tolerability, and administration of these agents and will identify which patients are most likely to benefit from taking them.
