21 settembre Giornata Mondiale dell’Alzheimer

Pinterest Google+

Il numero di persone colpite da demenza, negli anni, è destinato ad aumentare, a causa del crescente invecchiamento della popolazione. Secondo l’ultimo Rapporto Mondiale Alzheimer, questa condizione interessa al mondo 46,8 milioni di persone, una cifra che potrebbe essere destinata a raddoppiare ogni vent’anni.

A ricordare le proporzioni di questo fenomeno è la Federazione Alzheimer Italia in occasione della Giornata Mondiale Alzheimer, 21 settembre, giunta alla ventiquattresima edizione.

L’ Alzheimer, patologia neurodegenerativa, è la causa più comune di demenza, almeno il 50% dei casi è attribuibile ad esso.

E’ caratterizzato dalla perdita progressiva delle funzioni cognitive, con un interessamento iniziale dell’area della memoria fino a coinvolgere quasi tutta la corteccia cerebrale.

La federazione ha stimato che in Italia la demenza colpisca 1.241.000 persone, destinati a raggiungere 1.609.000 nel 2030 e a superare i due milioni e 200 mila nel 2050.

La ricerca è impegnata nell’individuazione di possibili terapie quantomeno per rallentarne la progressione.

Gli studi si stanno intensificando soprattutto per la diagnosi precoce, con la messa a punto di diversi esami che possano concorrere a diagnosticare la patologia il prima possibile, e per la cura.

Tra i bersagli principali ci sono le placche di beta-amiloide, la proteina tossica che si aggrega senza essere smaltita nel cervello delle persone colpite da Alzheimer. Tra gli strumenti su cui si sta concentrando la ricerca c’è un anticorpo monoclonale umano in grado di aggredire e distruggere questi aggregati.

    Howdy this is kinda of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML. I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding skills so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    In this awesome scheme of things you actually secure a B- just for effort. Where you confused me personally was in all the facts. You know, people say, details make or break the argument.. And it could not be much more correct in this article. Having said that, permit me tell you what did work. The writing is very powerful and this is probably the reason why I am making the effort in order to opine. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, even though I can certainly notice the leaps in logic you come up with, I am definitely not certain of just how you appear to connect your ideas which inturn help to make your final result. For now I will, no doubt yield to your position but wish in the future you connect the dots better.

    Almost all of the things you claim is astonishingly precise and it makes me ponder why I hadn’t looked at this with this light previously. Your piece truly did turn the light on for me personally as far as this issue goes. But at this time there is 1 issue I am not really too comfy with and while I try to reconcile that with the actual central theme of your position, permit me see what all the rest of the visitors have to say.Very well done.
