Summary The prevalence of Alzheimer's disease is rapidly increasing throughout the world, but for the first time, this once unavoidable disease now may be preventable. A study conducted by the Dominantly Inherited Alzheimer Network, in which more than 150 researchers from around the world participated, revealed that changes in the brain caused by Alzheimer's disease begin up to 25 years before the symptoms appear. As a result, development of a medication to prevent Alzheimer's is now a real possibility. Meanwhile, in Japan, a new exercise program promises to improve memory by increasing the volume of one of the first parts of the brain to be affected by Alzheimer's. This program introduces cutting-edge Alzheimer's prevention techniques from around the world.
