(February 6, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Chicago - The number of Alzheimer's patients could triple by 2050, according to a report published in Neurology. Researchers studied nearly 11,000 Caucasian and African-American individuals aged 65 and older. Participants were followed between 1993-2011 and were assessed every three years for the presence of dementia. Researchers also examined data on death rates, education and future population estimates from the US Census Bureau. Results showed that nearly 14 million people are expected to have Alzheimer's disease by 2050, a threefold increase from the 4.7 million individuals affected in 2010.
