2nd Annual Alzheimer’s Drug Development Summit

November 6 - 7, 2008
Washington, DC


Recent studies show that a potential Alzheimer’s pandemic could potentially bankrupt the United States Healthcare system. However, the successful development of a disease-modifying drug for Alzheimer’s could potentially save the U.S. Healthcare system an estimated $4.0 trillion dollars. Building off of the success of our inaugural conference, CBI’s Second Annual Alzheimer’s Drug Development Summit examines the latest disease modifying therapies and pre-symptomatic approaches for Alzheimer’s.

Hear Three Case Studies on the Latest AD Treatment Initiatives:

*
An update on the development of CTS21166 an Oral Beta Secretase Inhibitor
*
Data that supports the notion of a metabolic subtype of AD patients
*
Description of the aims and structure of the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative (ADNI)
