Anyone seen this yet? I read the report, which reads like a journal review article but as far as I can tell is not published in a peer-reviewed journal. But it seems useful and legit, ranking various non-pharmacological interventions by the strength of supporting evidence. Link Below.
Washington, D.C. (Sept. 11, 2019) – UsAgainstAlzheimer’s (UsA2) today released a new report which highlights the strengths, gaps, and opportunities for further exploration within the non-pharmacological interventions pipeline, which could slow, delay, or possibly even prevent Alzheimer’s and related dementias. Non-pharmacological treatments were defined as any replicable lifestyle intervention, such as diet and exercise or alternative approaches, such as cognitive training, medical devices, and modifiable risk factors, which may provide some quantifiable or relevant positive change in commonly reported symptoms of Alzheimer’s patients.
The report, developed by ResearchersAgainstAlzheimer’s, found that while initial research at the preclinical or early clinical stages reveals potential for non-pharmacological interventions, more expansive, multimodal studies – where two or more interventions are examined together – are needed to fully explore these preliminary results, particularly for communities of color and women. This underscores the urgent need for markedly increased funding for Alzheimer’s research at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where 62 non-pharmacological studies are currently being conducted. The full report can be found here.
