USA Today (3/15, Alltucker) reports, “A new report [PDF]” released March 15 by the Alzheimer’s Association “estimates 6.5 million Americans have Alzheimer’s disease and more than one in 10 older adults have early stage memory or cognitive problems.” The report “said 12-18% of adults 60 and over have ‘mild cognitive impairment,’ a category of memory loss or cognitive problems that may be a precursor to dementia or caused by other medical or behavioral issues.” This report “comes as the Alzheimer’s Association and other patient groups ratchet up pressure on the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services over its preliminary decision to limit coverage of” Aduhelm (aducanumab), “the first new Alzheimer’s drug in two decades to people enrolled in clinical trials.” (SOURCE: APA Headlines)
