How does precision medicine relate to treating Alzheimer’s disease? Can you share more with us about the blood biomarker research at Johns Hopkins?  

With this special series, brought to you by the NEI Podcast we will address a different theme in psychopharmacology every 3 months. Each theme is split into 3 parts, with one part released each month. This theme is on Alzheimer’s disease, the amyloid hypothesis, disease modification, and breakthroughs in diagnosis and treatment.  

Today, Dr. Andy Cutler interviews Dr. Kostas Lyketsos about the most current research on treatment for Alzheimer’s disease, including precision medicine and behavioral modifications.
