Trends in Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia in the Asian-Pacific Region

Description

The burden of dementia is rising worldwide. In 2010, it was estimated that 35.6 million people were living with dementia worldwide— a number that is projected to increase to 65.7 million by 2030 and 115.4 million by 2050. Approximately 60% of the world's population lives in the Asian-Pacific region— a home to many different ethnic groups. The rapidly growing population of persons with dementia will place a heavy societal burden among countries in the region, and thus information is needed on possible interethnic differences in prevalence and incidence of dementia, the rate of cognitive decline, risk, and protective factors, factors that affect dementia recognition and treatment and interventions strategies.

We invite researchers in the field of dementia and AD to contribute to this special issue with original manuscripts as well as with review articles that may further our understanding of dementia and associated factors in the Asian-Pacific region. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Ethnic/racial differences on the rate of cognitive decline, prevalence and incidence of dementia or dementia subtypes, or diagnostic issues.
  • The importance of nonmemory impairment in dementia and AD
  • The occurrence of neuropsychiatric symptoms of dementia and Alzheimer's disease and treatments of these symptoms
  • Genetic, biomarker and neuroimaging markers for disease characterization and disease progression
  • Therapeutic approaches to the treatment of dementia and AD
  • Caregiver burden and decision making
