Prof. Alexandru Vlad Ciurea MD, PhD., MSc., Dr. hc Mult.: Alzheimer’s Made Simple 10 March 2019
On Sunday, March 10th, 2019, from 11.00, the NTB Small Hall shall host the conference of Prof. Alexandru Vlad Ciurea MD, PhD., MSc., Dr. hc Mult., entitled Alzheimer’s Made Simple. About the conferenceAlzheimer's disease was described by the German psychologist Alois Alzheimer in 1906 after the neurological trauma of the patient Auguste Deter, the disease being characterized from the outset as a disease of forgetfulness. The autopsy of the patient revealed a major cortex atrophy and amyloid deposits in the neurons, as well as neurofibrillary changes. Over time, the disease was defined as a dementia disorder with the alteration of mental processes and primarily affecting cognitive activity, memory disturbances and changes in patient behaviour.Alzheimer's is currently an important form of dementia with a major incidence (over 6 million American citizens were diagnosed in 2018). The number of cases diagnosed with Alzheimer's both in the US and in Europe is steadily rising due to nervous system overwork, sleep deprivation, and disorderly life, stress, and associated pathology.Alzheimer's is considered incurable, with a long preclinical period and a progressive course of the disorder, from minor to severe forms. Many political, artistic and sports personalities have died from this disorder, and the main therapeutic method is prevention (diet, lifestyle, connections, social life, music, tourism and positive thinking, etc.).
