Biogen's New Alzheimer's Drug Is a Medicare Budget Buster
"New drug for Alzheimer's comes with rather controversial approval, and now we're learning a huge price tag. The drug is called Adele Adele home, I should say adult film. It was approved by the FDA last week. It's $56,000 per year for a supply. Medicare copays could reach $11,000. The Alzheimer's Association's sharply criticized the manufacturer, Biogen for that price tag. You're about to hear from Paul Seagirt. He is with PCs advisers there in Northern California firm. They help businesses manage health care costs, And he says, This is a perfect example of what is wrong with how we approve and distribute drugs. We've got great health care how we pay for? It's crazy. This is a perfect example. You've got a $56,000 drug that the FDA is just approved. Three of the scientists who were on the review panel That made a recommendation to the FDA have resigned because of the 11 in November, 10 said. No, I'm recommending to approve it and one said, I don't know. And yet they still approved a drug that Has, you know, really hasn't shown itself to be effective. They're going to build $56,000. A year for each person that's on this drug. It's incredible. The FDA advisory board gave the thumbs down to this drug. Yet it got approved by the agency. The question is why It's a great question, and unfortunately, I There's a lot of financial drivers that drive our whole system. I'm a free market person. I'm not against that. But we've a lot. We're approving this thing and then saying we're going to allow them to do a nine year confirmatory trial. Which in those nine years if they do end up confirming that it is not Very effective or not that effective or not at all, effective.

Alzheimer’s Drug Likely to Be FDA Approved Despite Potential Risks
"Drug is reasonably likely to result in a clinical benefit and granted approval. Despite potential risks. NBC's Brian Clark with details The FDA s decision to grant accelerated approval to Biogen's new Alzheimer's drug is a historic first in the fight against the disease. It's not a cure. It's not a panacea, but it is a first line treatment that that does look at the underlying cause of the disease. Dr. Joanne Pike, the chief strategist of the Alzheimer's association, points out Alzheimer's remains a fatal disease. We have to have a first line treatment before we can get to a second line or a third line, Dr Pike says. This requires the health care system do prioritize Early detection.

The Importance Of Diversifying Alzheimer's Research
"John. Let's talk about what alzheimer's disease as an how it's related to other forms of dementia right so dementia is an overarching term. That refers to thinking and memory problems from lots of causes including stroke or head injury. Alzheimer's is far and away. The most common cause of dementia at least in later life and it refers to the specific process where these toxic plaques and tangles build up in the brain and eventually start killing neurons. Those are the brain cells. We used to think and remember an for black americans. How much greater is their risk of developing alzheimer's or some other form of dementia. Some studies show that the risk is twice as high as it is for a white american though the exact amount still kind of in question and by the way there's also some evidence that lat next people also have a higher risk and asian americans appear to have a low risk than white americans. Okay and do. Scientists know why they're such huge disparities not fully. Some of the difference probably has to do with known risk factors for alzheimer's so health problems like heart disease. High blood pressure diabetes obesity. All of these increase a person's risk for alzheimer's and these factors are more common in black americans and they are in white americans. There's also at least one. Genetic risk factor. Okay people who have one or two copies of a gene called abeille. Four are more likely to develop alzheimer's and the four gene appears to be more common in people of african ancestry but scientists really don't understand alzheimer's very well in anyone. They've been testing all of these alzheimer's drugs for decades and really nothing has worked so research is still. Don't know whether all of these factors put together can fully explain why alzheimer's is so much more common in black americans. John that's really tough to hear. I mean you mentioned healthcare earlier. The you know that black americans have less access to care for loved ones with alzheimer's. What do we know about that. Just a couple of weeks ago. Alzheimer's association released a report on race ethnicity and alzheimer's and i talked with brain scientists. Maria correo who is now the chief science officer there. here's part of what. She told me about what they learned from a survey of people who were caring for a friend or family member with alzheimer's among nonwhite caregivers half say they've faced discrimination when navigating through the healthcare system with a top concern being the providers. Don't even listen to what they're saying. Perhaps because of their race color or ethnicity that's really frustrating and not surprisingly black americans. Were the most likely to report discrimination. Okay so we've talked about risk we've talked about care. Let's talk about research so as scientists are trying to find treatments. What can be done to make. Sure that black americans are included in that research. Several things they can change. The racial and ethnic composition of the people who do research black researchers are more likely to have ties within black communities and are more likely to make sure that studies are inclusive. Researchers can also change the racial and ethnic composition of the people who participate in research studies and they can focus on questions about why. Alzheimer's appears to act differently in people of different races. Yeah i mean. These are really good goals to have of course but our researchers getting any closer to achieving them. I've seen some encouraging signs especially when it comes to diversifying scientific studies so for example a couple of years ago researchers formed a group called the african ancestry neuro science research initiative. I spoke to one of the brain scientists involved. Dr cuff weeds rossa. He's a psychiatrist and a professor at duke university. He told me he joined the effort when he realized that his own ancestors who came from west africa had been excluded from genetic studies of brain disorders. It was clearly an immediately evident to me how much of a problem this was right because for me as one who does what we call basic research. In other words. I take the genes that are found in human gene studies and then i studied them in model organisms in other words things like mice or rats and understand how it changes other brain works. It meant that. I was studying genes. That were specifically related to onus in folks of european ancestry which would mean that cough fleet. Derosa was only studying the genes of a narrow segment of people. Which sounds pretty. messed up. If you're trying to figure out the genetic story of how. Alzheimer's affects all people like what is the scientific justification for this approach. Years ago the logic was that it would be easier to find genes responsible for brain disorders in people of european descent. The reason is that they tend to be very similar genetically to one another. The genes of people of african ancestry vary a lot more now. Technology has made genetic sequencing so widely available that you can easily study all kinds of people and scientifically you should because people with different ancestries can have genetic differences that affect their risk for diseases like alzheimer's absolutely and have scientists learned anything new about alzheimer's disease from studying it in black americans. Maybe you know that. Jean april four. That increases a person's risk of developing alzheimer's. Especially if you inherit two copies one from each of your parents so the gene is more common among black americans but it may be less risky for them. Some other genetic factors seems to protect people of african ancestry from the bad effects of a four. I spoke with dr daniel weinberger. He's a scientist at the lieber institute in baltimore. And he's also part of the african ancestry neuroscience research initiative. Here's what he told me about april four. If you inherit the risk form of that gene from both of your parents and your european ancestry that increases your likelihood of manifesting outside disease later in life about twenty fold if have african ancestry the risk from inheriting that gene from both your parents is about a fourth of what it is if you were of european ancestry so if scientists could figure out what the protective mechanism is they might be able to develop a drug. That would help protect all people who have at least one copy of the four gene and that is by the way tens of millions of people in the us alone now. That sounds really promising. But it's gonna take a lot more research right that also broadens who's being included in that research it will truly diversifying the groups of people in research studies is really challenging and scientists know. They can't do it on their own. So the african ancestry project for example has involved. People like reverend alvin hathaway. He's the pastor of union baptist church in baltimore. He told me one challenge facing scientists. Is that a lot of black. Americans are pretty skeptical about this kind of research. You know clearly when you begin to talk about The brain you begin to talk about the genome data set immediately within the community. That triggers all kinds of suspicions It triggers a lot of suspicions because There has been arguments that The caucasian brain is different from the brain of people of african descent and one of the amazing revelations that i found. Was that when you actually look at brain tissue. You can't discern difference right. Scientists propped up thinking for a long time. And you're saying the legacy of that lives on. Yes it does so john. How'd you researchers with the african ancestry project and other groups navigate that the alzheimer's association did a survey a few months ago. That found that one in five black americans would actually feel insulted. If a doctor even suggested a cognitive assessment to detect alzheimer's so of medicine has a lot of work to do to build trust with black americans and other minority groups. I talked about what that might take with. A scientist named lisa barnes. She's a professor and also a cognitive neuropsychologist at the old timers disease center in chicago. She told me she often. Here's the same comment. When she approaches groups that have been marginalized about doing a research study especially when that may take years to complete these researchers come in and they collect all these data than we never hear from you again so we we also give back so we who make sure that we go back to the community and update them on what we're finding we give their vice about how we're interpreting data. So we try to really make it a partnership between us and the community. And i think that that goes a long way and building trust and and and having them stay with us for the long haul.
Interview with Johnny Ball - Forget Me Knot Charity
"So. I read on your website that the alzheimer's society which is pretty much the mirror. Image of the alzheimer's association here in the states found that ninety percent caregivers experienced feelings of stress and anxiety weekly more like daily probably at least sixty percent of them struggle to talk about the impact of caregiving on their lives because of feelings of guilt. It's like. I can't complain about what. I'm going through because my loved. One has a tea or alzheimer's or whatever and so how can caregivers balance their needs and the needs of their loved. Ones in your opinion like know have we. Have you thought that one through as you launch charity. I think the as mansell. How things i i think the fittest into that. It's okay to feel the way you feel. I think a lot of as you just explained guilt and extreme sense of duty and which means the facebook does because the caring for fest often before themselves. That i think is important for the mental health of the unification which ben immediately impacts the wellbeing of the patient. They need to care for themselves as well. A member. the average duty of air to themselves as much as they have achieved care to the person benefitting asta and i think inaccessible and really letting mass inside. You know that that's true. I'm giving yourself giving his a brain give yourself the option to feel how you feel and to Except that you need to care about yourself. As well is the vista But also will be trying to do is using technology to support give keg. It's and a big audubon is gonna be a mental health technology so for example of mental health apps identity being used recently going to help with distribution bags. A lot of k gives also busy. just hanso. faux would they would is essentially a fulltime job. The have undergone find that you and i knew mental health apps imitation Love people appear gives won't have time to the studies. Things is important. We proactive in exclaiming walls amphion to help whether they are specialist tools. Okay games on. Otherwise i'm helping distribute them so that people off themselves as well as often careful. Yeah like. I've experienced a little bit today. You have the best laid plans for you know you got you to the list for the day and then you get up at breakfast time. Something blows up your morning. Pretty much caregiving goes. You know you think okay. Well i'll take my mom to the doctor or we'll go to the park or whatever and then you know they have a different idea or they're having a bad day and i do think that as my generation in you you must be a must be one of the old millennials. Right tracy four identified makes me millennials. Yeah you're in the middle. So i'm gen-x i'll be when this episode comes out. I'll be fifty four. I got a birthday at a week. I think yes a week. And it's like irrelevant is about this time and one of the things that i have found with a podcast which obviously is technology. Is that a lot of caregivers. They're older and they're just clueless. Even run across people that are about my age. There was a gal my the showed up. She needed a support group like now today and so she showed up his back in the old days. When you could meet in person. She showed up to my support group from twenty miles away from my old hometown. And i said oh. I've got the perfect solution for you. My podcast and i'm china's show her and of course. I have an iphone and android phone. So i was having troubles because i'm not familiar with that. And she has. Oh do those things anyway. And i'm like it would really help you because i talked to lake fantastic people and she just blew me off like whatever i. I don't have time to think about a podcast mike. It's the easiest way to get advice and information so i'm hoping as we you know. Move through my generation your generation that it won't be sent a challenge to use technology to support our caregiving needs and is your focus with the charity mostly on mental health apps no not specifically but focuses on technology. I saw the empty We can distribute technology broadly cheaply and it also is ideas. My day job. This is my specialty network can understand how whips we can for. Relatively low costs distributed. Old bills will put k gives in touch with the right technology. That's going to help them. So the impact probably won't be as great as for example to support group but the impact can be brewed. Sir podcast princeton's what you mappin fantastic you all of this information or these impact trees from his love of people. Don't know about the concept you're describing. I think we push push the different types of boulder available essentially build towns. You just saw people. I should have a fax. You know how did you decide. Well tell me about okay. Well we've talked kind. Roundabout it into the forget me not charity. Tell me tell me about what you're doing to raise awareness and hopefully raise money to get all this fantastic stuff happening so. The game plan is actually road from portugal and europe and contents of europe to french guiana. Which is in sacramento. So we're gonna grow across the atlantic ocean.

But i'm sure we can expand a little bit someday. So thanks for joining me johnny. So your mom took care of your dad for many years tell me about your dad and your caregiving journey. Yes so my dad. Got fronted dimension when i was full team. Mac i mean we didn't know initially kinda very subtle onset sir some stuff assigns. Some sort of an ocd behavior and habits ejaculated needs to have sort of started coming in and we. We weren't really sure what is meant. Probably when i was seventeen means fooling diagnosed and definitely before at the age tom shanklin saddam was now twenty years ago so he had yes hunts and and then he had to mention until two years ago when he passed away and and the majority of that time he lived at home. My mum and it was just because my sister. Self we guns university on my other system rather Back ceremony on singlehandedly. Careful for him. Full probably nolan probably fifteen years until it's long time i mean as nearly law tougher laws on sarah and tools variants He was to be introspective scare him. You're amazing awesome. But even then i mean did doesn't end full primary care as you know grown same every single day. She still you know she can go on holiday. She just went down and look at the data. even she wasn't enough to all the time she loves him. Most of the to worry. Also vistas right in terms of you always concerned a well-being the and worrying if it comes to bowl of marrying a happy state of mind and that's all still there. Yeah so that was. Conical happens is really back about seeing my mum's dedication. How tough was even though. She handled it incredibly news so stoic. Yeah it was. That serve inspired this inside this expedition. Maturity stop so. How's she doing now. she's doing well. Yeah crazy agree raw. She's she goes now. I'd say sure exactly now so that it was To two hundred years ago died. Since then i guess she suggested completely to new life. Ace i suppose the even though she's a stephanie very different way of living and in some sense of relief. I suppose it's still transitions dara. It's interesting because you still have guilt. Like i know especially now with the holidays coming. There's just times when i think you know. I tried so hard with my mom and like christmas. Two thousand nineteen. Our city. park is full of christmas. Trees that are decorated with different organizations or businesses. Some of them just decorate 'em however they want some decorate them with the theme like one of them was basically a pizza christmas tree so all. The decorations looked like slices of pepperoni slices of pizza. Which is kind of not super christmas. But it was very cute. I took her there because it was bright. It was outside it. You know i thought. Oh she'll love this and it was just like she was like clueless and it was and she was honoring. I think she was having a bad day. And it's hard knowing. That was her last christmas. We did have a really good lunch on the twenty third of december and then everything went to hell after that. So there's interestingly enough you still have like these guilt feelings. Like i should have done more could have done more and it takes a while to get through those i think so. It's i'm i'm finding that with myself and other caregivers that are in my position. So if you guys are experiencing that it's pretty normal which is frustrating. But there it is so. I read on your website that the alzheimer's society which is pretty much the mirror. Image of the alzheimer's association here in the states found that ninety percent caregivers experienced feelings of stress and anxiety weekly more like daily probably at least sixty percent of them struggle to talk about the impact of caregiving on their lives because of feelings of guilt.

Dampening of the Senses Linked to Dementia Risk
"Memory loss and forgetfulness or common warning signs for dementia. But a dulling of the senses also appears to be associated with disease. Smell is definitely the strongest one we found, but it does seem like it's not just smell will Abramowicz an epidemiologist at the University of California San Francisco. Her team studied cognitive decline in eighteen hundred adults from the health aging and body composition study which tracked the health and mental function of older adults over a seventeen year period. During this study subjects completed sensory tests including hearing, smell touch and vision Brenda's team took. The results of those tests and then compared the adults overall sensory abilities to their mental function and the results. Those better functioning had a lower risk of dementia and worth worse multiple sensory function. They had this guy dementia a decline in smell in particular had the strongest link to dementia. The results are in the Journal of the Alzheimer's Association. Alzheimer's and dementia. The scientists were just studying correlations here.

Says one reason is that primary care doctors often skip the assessment unless a patient mentions a cognitive problem usually what we're seeing. That physicians are waiting for the senior to bring any concerns to them a cognitive assessment. Usually, take several minutes and primary care. Doctors say they often don't have the time during regular visit just forty seven percent of doctors say they routinely screen older patients for cognitive problems, but Medicare considers it a required component of an annual

Could we have to one and Eskin Dido on the twenty second at Kit Carson Park and then one in San Diego Mission Bay Crown Point. That's on the twenty third and and our walks are beautiful beautiful times. You can even come in not walk I say. How long does it say. It's not a it's not a marathon okay. Hey you don't have to take a step but just being there amongst everyone who gets it those thousands of people everyone everyone of them has a connection to this disease and they understand what you're going through what you went through and it's just beautiful to see if we have these flowers these promise garden flowers that people hold up that are all different colors and the yellow is pure caregiver the bluish if you have the disease the purple is view lost someone and the oranges if he support this disease and everyone has a flower and we all hold them up and we walk with them around. Crown Point and it's just so beautiful so amazing and there's really Y- you raise one hundred dollars and you get a t shirts to walk but I know we we want people to be there. We want people to raise money because the money goes to research in care and education but we also just love the event for the fact that everyone comes together and connects. That's important I as you know I do a lot of work with the leukemia and Lymphoma Society of San Diego and I'm always saddened when I hear somebody's been diagnosed in there and they don't know the organization. Shen and and more importantly don't know what services provide so to your point of you know as soon as you get that diagnosis within the family please reach out there are amazing organizations in San Diego Filling the disease Ray XYZ disease but there's probably an organization and there are people who are ready and willing and excited to help you to navigate what that is so so if it's leukemia or blood cancer or Alzheimer's I would just encourage everyone to just do research pick up the phone google. Where can I find the support because even more importantly I think that support from the caregiver side more than the the medical team is GonNa take care of the patient the person with the diagnosis but who's GonNa take care of you and navigating the rest of it so to teach huge huge education process. You learn something every single day you learn that the P. Word is the most important thing the patients you have to have patience it can and take someone get this twenty seconds. If I say what's your name it can take twenty seconds for it to go into their brain. Go through thraw plaques and tangles whatever's happening comprehend you create an answer and come out your mouth blue because you have a blue shirt so so it's not going to be. It's a processing disease so it's not gonNA come out the way you think and you have to have patience for that answer and I'll tell you a quick story about my mom. Absolutely this is before where she even got diagnosed and this is something I I like to share a lot of things that happened my mom stories and tips that I've learned in gleaned from colleagues etc along the way because I feel like if I could do anything to make the caregiver journey a little bit easier for someone else then I've done my job and that's my goal so mom was visiting getting she was visiting probably five months before she actually got the official diagnosis and how she maneuvered to planes to get from the east coast to the West Coast. I have no idea but what I'm thankful that she did but I do recall like all these things you remember now right into your call it's hot and San Diego even in January and she had a wool coat on on all buttoned up standing waiting for me outside the airport so that's even thing not addressing appropriate for the weather not realizing that to relieve potentially some of this sweating that I'm doing it could take off my coat so we were walking along the boardwalk in mission beach so that there's a boardwalk and then there's a bit of a wall and then it's the sand so I said mom. Do you want to stay on the boardwalk or do you want to go on. Get our toes in the sand. No answer mom. Did you want to stay on the boardwalk. You might hop over the wall. Take off our shoes going the sand no answer mom. She never didn't pay attention. We're very close uh-huh and she said I'm thinking oh every time I I said something to her. I restarted her thought process which is way logger now because she's got this dimension head. She's got these plaques and tangles major terms but they mean that it's harder for the neurons to connect and she said I'm thinking and I didn't know then what to do because I didn't really know what it meant. Of course I sat down the wall and then she sat down on the wall. She mimicked me so she saw it was safe which was sitting down the wall. She didn't know the right answer because I kept restarting her and this is such a powerful story Doria to share to show you have to have patience you can't keep hammering them over and over again with the same question and Gosh just what the realization what was going on in her brain. WEASING is it a hereditary disease tend to run in families so there are some genetic links but it's really really tiny this cult familial gene about five percent of those diagnosed have a familial gene and sixty minutes did a giant story France. CBS side big stories about this I think as a family in Columbia who it's just in there so then one out of the two kids all the way down. Oh Gosh you're gonna the habit and it's real young. It's hidden fifty and you know it was pretty powerful that some of the children decided not to have children because they didn't want to pass on the genetics but that's a very small portion portion. There's another gene called. Apo E four which I learned about that if you have two copies you're you're more at risk of getting the disease. I'm at risk of getting getting the disease because I have the blood direct blood relative who had it does mean. I'm going to get it and even if you have one copy of the gene. It doesn't mean you're going to get it. That's why this all. This research search is going on to find out so there's a ton of research that came out in so many things that are that are happening. especially the one of the things that really really really interesting just came out at this. AFC COP rinse is the connect real connection between lower your blood pressure and potentially attentional reducing your risk of cognitive decline so this goes back to what can you do now and they follow it. got thousands of people as part of this trial in sprint mind trial and they followed all these people for years nine thousand people for years and in the beginning it was talking about blood pressure in the new the new blood pressure numbers and then they kept following these folks and watch to see their cognitive decline and it was actually they're caught onto the risk of cognitive decline reduced by twenty percent if they kept these blood pressure number straight so that's part of what we're we that's first conclusive evidence that there is something that maybe we can actually do but the things that we push now. Are you know exercise healthy eating keeping all those things in check you know increasing your cognitive challenge challenge your child yourself cognitively do you the brain games and stay socially active because social activity the isolation. I believe kidding yeah definitely lead to bring on yeah going back to sort of social media and the fact that we all live with our faces in devices now. Is there any research that will be looking at. Is that going to be enough sort of brain game stimulation that type of thing like it'll be interesting to see if millennials because they've grown up not having anything but their face in a device is that enough of doing the crossword puzzles or that you know in the newspaper paper. My Dad is every morning. My Dad does the crossword puzzle in the newspaper. Yep but th- but is the the social media and sort of that electronic stimulation shen. Is that going to help or hurt in terms of you know where this disease go. He's not sure if their studies starting to look on your own but it would be rehashing but there's there are these great studies called the finger and the pointer studies the finger studies are kind of going all across the globe but the pointer studies are just really really happening here and they are really looking at these people people doing those four different things we've talked about the exercising the eating the cognitive tests and the social interaction but it's not just hey let us know if you did thirty seconds at the gym. It's driving people to the YMCA. Okay having them do it. You know so it's it's really really keeping close tabs on the took focusing on this healthy healthier lifestyle style to see if it reduces their cognitive decline so yeah there. There are a lot of lifestyle trials that are going on right now which is interesting exercise in. MCI MCI is it's almost a pre Alzheimer's but it doesn't necessarily need to go into MCI's mild cognitive impairment and sometimes you will be diagnosed with that so there's a lot of studies going on what can keep people kind of in that stage longer versus going into like a full blown type of dementia more decline and studies that involve volve exercise. There's actually one at UCSD exercising MCI so different things different things are happening all over the place and then there's the basic biological ICAL. Let's look at can we know something just came out about a study that he went to a certain degree and didn't finish shop and didn't come to its call it coming to line or something to to reach all the official numbers but then they kept studying and it did reduce some of the amyloid plaques that are in your your brain so does that therapy work and does it work with another pairing of therapy so there are a lot of things that people are looking at research twice. They're looking at interesting thing that came out about fertility and he may have many pregnancies you've had in does that. Take a difference in your dementia interesting sort yeah all sorts of yards all interconnected really. Isn't it goodness. Let's let's take a step back. and talk about just sort of you in general Have you had a mentor in your life. I'm sure in news probably have had lots of of mentors but talk a little bit about having a mentor. My mom was my first straight. She led me so many ways she supported me really and everything that I did even if it might have been not the greatest decision but she'd support me and then pick me up when I fell and yeah dry tears you know and I'm not talking about when I'm fire so you talk about thirty five just she was amazing. Most my most amazing support yeah pretty fantastic yeah it's news mentors people that I just really respected who really stayed true to what they were doing. And you know ask tough questions and so watching you know I just think being aware in every job that you have be could pretty much pick one. I think every position and the job that you have and it might not even be someone who's above. You might not even be someone who's of a boss or manager level. It could be a colleague uh-huh why really liked the way she really calmly response to everything as you could tell I talk a lot has done good might fear of dead air. I just keep talking. Just keep talking right but just looking at someone who you can always grow and add to your personality right so this wonderful front ahead Susan at my last job. She was like super calm the way she responded to everything on while she's way more relaxed than I am but she's really smart and she can just get things done. That's a really great way of going about things I would love to be like her regard or by this person really manages people very well. I'm learning how she's talking to this person. She's not throwing something out them. She's validating what they're doing. Maybe making a suggestion so all these the things you can yeah that keeping your eyes open definitely talk about a time when you had to make a big ask in your life. I should've prepared for this big. Ask I did did have to ask my mom. If you know leaving leaving the east coast to come to the West Coast to you start a job by I was very close to her. We'd have Saturday morning. we live two hours away but we'd meet in the middle we each drive an hour and go to the Dunkin donuts I love and have coffee and have our ketchups of so leaving her right leaving and.

Maybe is the correct term to this disease here about how it devastates a family that's when they'll remember when they're voting for a bill that increases respite care or a something that may increase the amount of hours a care professional needs to have in order to work in a facility say so different different things so we have an advocacy program really trying to push lawmakers because those are the ones who make change and also pushing for all this additional research funding from the government our research funding funding believes quadrupled pulled unless several years and that's good that's important who are getting we were we were getting as as a you know a disease.

I'm so happy to see. It's great to see you for having me. This is wonderful. I felt like I should wear my purple. I wasn't remiss not wearing my scarf. You get through the Alzheimer's Association. That's right so for those of our listeners who don't don't know a little about your background. Can you give us our thirty or thirty minutes a three hour presentation on who kristen just your quick sort of background on how you found yourself here at Alzheimer's and what your trajectory has been very interesting. I believe truly that I found myself when my mother started losing herself so my mother was diagnosed in two thousand nine the age of sixty one tender age sixty one with a type of dementia called Lewy Body Dementia and we can talk about that later as far as the different types spat dementia is the overall umbrella term Alzheimer's the most common type and Lewy body is the kind that my mom had and I was here working. Monte and the decision was made at the time the diagnosis was made that I was going to go back okay and live with her and a sister this be with her holder hand yeah because we're best friends and so we did we were together for the four and a half years that it really was racking her and she passed away age sixty five and in that process. I learned so so much about dementia that caregiving about patients about skills you don't even know that you have and put it all together and ended up actually working for the Alzheimer's Association. Can I get for a couple of years okay and after mom passed away I love San Diego. The ocean called me back. Hey I came back here and not too long later and it appeared association wonderful so talk a little bit about the diagnosis is that your mom has and how that might be different than what people understand be dementia so what made hers particularly unique or different so right now. There isn't a way ages specifically determine exactly what type you have except for symptomatic thing is so in my mother's case some of the things that she had included some early hallucinations at one point she thought that my brother and I were in the same room and neither of us were in the state she said I thought we were watching TV together. Whoa what's what's going on with that. also some a lot of gate issues a lot of balance issues a lot of false and some bit of shaking. Parkinson Tony in tremors at tend to be one of the things that kind of lumped lumped into a lewy body diagnosis and it's got some of the a lot of some of the things things that the that allows us to hear typical Alzheimer's although there is no typical Alzheimer's but some of those ten signs like a lot of the memory issues and the wandering and then getting lost and you know forgetting about losing a lot of your short term memory shares that's Lewy bodies a little bit different and what normally ends their life that I am assuming that that that's not the the disease that ultimately makes them. Is there a secondary disease. She dies from your brain stops functioning because it's shrinking neurons are dying and a a are not able to communicate so if your brain controls your whole body and eventually you stop remembering how to swallow and you stop obviously can't fend handoff things so pneumonia is a lot of ways that people pass away My mother stopped swallowing so she stopped eating and drinking yeah yeah because they ask for eight it goes. I was on the wrong hole right now. It's like do I breathe is address. Walvis while there's no comprehension of that and no ability of the brain to tell so in fact she just stopped updating okay started and it was time to go she. She was like sixty eight pounds when she passed. Oh my God this giant Downer but yeah yeah wow goodness. What did you learn as a caregiver in that experience. Do you have an hour. Yes we have plenty of so many things the one of the biggest things. I think I learned in that. I like to share with people's that you do not have to do this alone. People think Oh my God this hit me. This hit my family like a truck. I'M GONNA silo borough in in and do what I gotta do. Gosh there's so many people who've done this before you moore going through it now.

Brick and steel, of a nondescript building we've once again made contact with our leader Hello, everybody Mark Levin. Here our number eight seven seven three eight one three eight one one eight seven seven three eight one three eight. One one why, we have a full plate Full plate The, news outlets particularly FOX, Sky News some. Other reporting we have some deal with the European Union on non, Kar product, certain products Where the goal is to reduce or, eliminate tariffs And subsidies On non Kar products that are purchased And the way Sky News reports it Donald Trump has held a very big day for free and fair trade after reaching a deal to avert a blow a full-blown trade war with the EU, following talks with the European Commission president. John Claude Juncker at the White House Mr. Trump said the US in a you have agreed to work. To resolve their current dispute last month the US presidents slap tariffs on steel and aluminum imports to, prompt tit for tat measures, by Brussels including tariffs on bourbon. Whiskey Levi's jeans and Harley Davidson motorbikes. Mr. Trump had worn of retaliatory action your car makers. In a bid to de-escalate the quarrel Mr. Trump said he and Mr Juncker had agreed to work together toward. Zero-tariff, zero non-tariff barriers and zero subsidy now Mr. producer Zero tariffs zero subsidies who has. Been, preaching this Who's been preaching this and getting, calls for, some Trump supporters attacking me That we need tariffs to protect our industries Now there were some who said look, this is a negotiating tool for the president. But that's not what most said most said we need tariffs to protect our industries And what I what, have I been arguing no, get it down. As close to zero tear zero, subsidies, as possible try and work it out with, other countries if they don't go along we. Can go along anyway just do it Because money will. Flow into this country you know one of the things I meant. To mention yesterday in the past is when you talk about an imbalance? Of trade with the country one of the things that's not considered our, services and financial transactions that's a big deal for the United States just, products just products so it's. A phony number Now they're agreeing to work toward. Zero tariffs and zero subsidies On non automobile products I'm not one hundred. Percent show at that means is that includes steel and aluminum That. Would be great if it includes still aluminum but I didn't hear about stealing aluminum So we'll need to know more as time goes on, but this has been my point this, has been my argument the president campaign and say I want. Zero tariffs and zero subsidies if. I can get it from other countries and so forth that's not what he campaigned on they have genuflected. Somewhat over there. At the White House because I think you you, Lavigne I'ts out there you've been hurt I think you've been hurt by the White House which. Monitors this show That's why I. Say it's one thing to criticize the president, when we disagree with them it's, another thing to try and sabotage, him which is what the left, us which is what the media do. Which is what the Democrats do. Which is what the never. Trumpers do that's not what we do here that's not what I do So this is good if it's true if. It turns out to be accurate is what, I'm saying if they actually can, negotiate this no tariffs and no, subsidies that's the Levin position is, it not Mr. bidder I won't go. Back and play the audio over. And over and over again But that's our position And let's see, how this works out I hope it does Now I may wind up being tougher on. China than most people I'm not looking for. Trade deals with, China I'm not looking. For currency deals with China China's the enemy China's stealing our technology what kind of deal? Can we cut with China to stop them from stealing our technology But our allies I've never understood Why, we would treat. Them like China So free trade apparently is very very, important because now everybody's talking about it Everybody's talking about why Because. It's better for everybody that's why And now our companies have. To compete and our farmers will compete they're happy. To compete Perfectly fine by me Let's do it, in, steel and aluminum too Let's, remove all of our tariffs and subsidies well, only if the other guy does it well we should try, and ask the other guy to, do it but if. They don't do it they don't do, it Then more and more money will, flow in our country Money finances which doesn't. Even count towards the quote unquote imbalance of trade anyway We'll see, how this develops over time. There I hate getting into this stuff with this Michael Cohen and. The tape I hate it when the when the pseudo media drives the agenda but I've heard so much misinformation and disinformation and ignorance when it comes to our federal, campaign laws and whether Trump is on the hook for violating our campaign loss he's, led, to, a close to being on the hook, for violating our campaign laws I had Bradley Smith on this program. A few months ago the former chairman of the Federal Election Commission he wrote a beautiful piece in the Wall Street Journal he spoke at length us and he's coming, back at the bottom of the hour so we can go through this yet again You can have a nondisclosure agreement I've been saying. This now for months. Months months months with stormy Daniels or anybody else a nondisclosure, agreement is not hush money a nondisclosure agreement. Is not illegal a nondisclosure agreement even in a campaign. Is not a campaign violation and in no circumstances is it criminal this entire issue as another shiny object it's another phony issue That CNN they got the tape obviously from Lanny Davis when you, see Lanny Davis there yes ambulance chasing slip and fall. Lawyer that's right Lanny Every damn lie the Clintons ever. Told Lanny. Defendant So, now he's, there Michael. Cohen's lawyer trashing the president this. Guy Michael Cohen what a sleazeball I never spoke to him in my life. I never communicated with. Them in my life what a, sleazeball you're, taping your. Client apparently repeatedly Got a dozen tapes What are you going to? Do with. The tapes Sarah counselor you're gonna use. It against your client Incredible I think the New York bar ought to be taking a look at. This they're probably cheering on Michael Cohen and Lanny Davis right now. Too Colin could turn on Trump who cares if he turns on Trump a nondisclosure agreement with a payment is is. Legal while he might have set up an LLC a corporation to launder the. Money through without Trump's name on it in order to doesn't matter You're not laundering money they're LLC's I love place There's nothing illegal. There's nothing shifty there's, nothing wrong. With an LLC I don't. Have one but people have them Under our tax laws Perfectly permissible Well that way they won't know who's making, the payment who cares The issue here's Michael Cohen the issue is what the hell's Lanny Davis doing. In, the middle of this trashing the president of the. United States Well Cohen's gonna turn on Trump turn on Trump about what Here, we, are going. Down, another rabbit hole Russia now. Michael Cohen Russia Michael Cohen I'll, be, right.

Alzheimer's: New research examines disease in women
"Support for WNYC comes from Purdue pharma Purdue makes prescription. Opioids and wants to limit their use it's just one of the steps produce reports to help address. The nation's opioid crisis from. NPR news this is all things considered I'm Ari Shapiro Audie Cornish nearly two thirds of people. Living with Alzheimer's, disease are women scientists think sex hormones like estrogen may. Be one reason for the disparity NPR's John Hamilton reports on research presented today at the Alzheimer's Association international conference. In Chicago women live longer than men so it's not surprising that they make up the majority of patients. With Alzheimer's and other forms of dementia But Maria Correo chief science officer of the Alzheimer's. Association says there's growing evidence that something else is going on it isn't just that women are. Living longer right there, is some biological underpinning and because of the large numbers of women that. Are affected it's important to find out one possible explanation involves hormones like estrogen and several studies presented at. This year's Alzheimer's conference support that idea one of the studies looked at nearly fifteen thousand women. In California cut he says the research found a link between a women's reproductive history and her risk. Of memory problems later in. Life for example women who have more than three children may have decreased risk of dementia the. Risk for these, women was twelve percent lower than for women who had. Only one child on the other hand the risk for women who experienced early menopause with nearly Twenty-eight percent higher. Both findings suggest that estrogen which rises during pregnancy and falls at menopause may help protect women from dementia Paulie machi- a professor of psychiatry and psychology at the university, of Illinois Chicago says it's not just that women. Have more estrogen than men women experienced these very. Dramatic hormonal transitions that in the long run can give rise to Alzheimer's disease one way, for women to minimize the hormonal changes at menopause is to take estrogen that approach fell out of favour more than a decade ago. When a large study found that women who took hormones after menopause were. Actually more, likely to get some form of dementia they also seem to have a higher risk of heart disease and. Breast cancer, but Mackey says more reasons studies have found that hormones really can't help. Prevent dementia if women get them at the right time the effects of hormone therapy depend on. The timing of us, use later in life is detrimental whereas use early in the menopausal transition. Could be beneficial and analysis presented at the meeting supports that idea it found that in two different studies Women who took hormones in. Their sixties and seventies were more likely to have trouble with. Thinking and memory but women who took hormones only during their early fifties had no increase in risk machi- says estrogen may, benefit younger women because it reduces the hot flashes associated with menopause she says. Her own research has found, that these hot flashes are bad for the brain the. More hot flashes a woman has the worst, her memory performance and when we intervene to address those hot flashes her memory performance bounces back. Machi- says findings like that are renewing interest in the idea of using hormones to prevent, Alzheimer's and other. Forms of dementia John Hamilton NPR news.
