Alzheimer Disease and Michael Mullan from Roskamp Institute
Alzheimer disease is one of the most common forms of dementia and the problematic part of it is that there is no cure for the disease. The disease will worsen over the passage of time and it will eventually lead to death. Name of the disease was inspired by the psychiatrist and neuro pathologist Alois Alzheimer who traced the symptoms of the disease way back in 1906. That is where the name of Dr Michael Mullan comes into picture.
Specialist from RosKamp Institute
Mullan is the CEO and specialist in Alzheimer disease of Roskamp Institute. He is also a ray of hope for over five million Americans, especially those over the age of 60 years. He not only studies and researches on the dreaded disease but also delivers lecture on the same and he also directs the memory disorder clinic of the institute. He is popular among millions of Americans suffering from the incurable disease.
About RosKamp Institute
Roskamp Institute is based in Sarasota in Florida and it is a nonprofit research center that has a pronounced mission of searching, experimenting and ultimately finding out solutions and treatment for neuropsychiatric as well as neurodegenerative disorders found in the people. Mullan leads the investigating team of the institute in the search of solutions. The team works in partnership with Dr. Fiona Crawford and they are working round the clock to find out particular targets for therapy.
Findings of the Institute
According to Mullan there are numerous rewarding aspects of making research on the Alzehimer disease. Usually the patients are senior citizens who are above 60 years in age and they might even be reaching 70 years or 80 years. These people have long memories as well as life experiences. Alzheimer disease often affects adversely the short term memories of the people. Tendencies to reminiscent are one of the characteristics of Alzheimer disease. At the same time the day to day loss of memory is great source of frustration for the people suffering from the disease. One of the findings that could be very useful is providing rays of hope for the patients.
Why Alzheimer disease is Difficult Treating
On many occasions both the patients and their treating physicians mistake the symptoms of Alzheimer disease as signs of old age and stress manifestations. Short term memory loss is the initial signs of the disease and in such cases the patient will not be able to remember the recent events that have taken place in his life. For diagnosis the disease the behavior and thinking abilities of the patients are carried out. Brain scan is also conducted to find out whether it is Alzheimer disease from which the person is suffering. But symptoms include various things like confusion, irritability, mood swing and aggressive attitude. There could be trouble with languages and also long term memory losses.
With their condition steadily declining the patients withdraw from family and society. Functions of the body are lost and it would ultimately lead to the death of the patient concerned.
