CONFERENCE COVERAGE SERIES

Alzheimer's Association International Conference - 2021

Denver, Colorado and Online

26 – 30 July 2021

The FDA approval for aducanumab left clinicians with little guidance on how to select the right patients and ensure their safety. At this year’s Alzheimer's Association International Conference, leading clinicians presented appropriate-use recommendations that helped fill the void. These include not prescribing the drug to people with cerebral amyloid angiopathies or people on blood thinners, and monitoring vascular health with frequent MRIs. Clinicians welcomed the guidelines and were hungry for more.
