Title:
Detangling the Inflammatory Web of Alzheimer's Disease
Abstract:
Detangling the Inflammatory Web of Alzheimer's Disease
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2006
Author:Morley, Margaret A., MSN, CCNS, ANP
P.I. Institution Name:Hoag Hospital
Title:Cardiology CNS/NP
As baby boomers approach senior citizenship, Alzheimer?s disease along with other dementias has raised public health concerns.  The average age of an RN in 2004 is 48 years old.  By the year 2030, 25-50% of us may be losing our minds to this grave disease.The overburdening of caregivers in concert with the predicted financial impact this plague bestows upon us, has ignited scientists to focus on the pathology of these mind shattering disorders.  As in the quest for preventative measures and appropriate treatments with cardiovascular disease, dementia researchers acknowledge the importance of first understanding physiological etiology. Inflammation has been the ?hot topic? in cardiovascular disease over the past few years portraying a primary culprit in endothelial dysfunction. Real or convergent, there are a variety of speculative theories including several that suggest there is a relationship that exists between Alzheimer?s disease, atherosclerosis and other vascular disorders.  Detangling the Inflammatory Web of Alzheimer?s Disease will appeal to the advanced practice and critical care nurse that possess an interest in the pathologic interrelationship between disease processes, and whom have an appreciation for the most current evidence based information regarding dementia. This dynamic lecture will review several studies that discuss genetic contributing factors, Apolipoprotein E, the extracellular formation of amyloid plaques and tau neurofibrillary tangles.  Present and future diagnostic and therapeutic tools will be presented. The RN will exit the lecture hall with a greater understanding of the pathophysiology and future hopeful possibilities of Alzheimer?s disease.
