Eli Lilly and Company to Present More Than 40 Abstracts at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference® 2017 (AAIC® 2017)

Data highlights include important health outcomes data emphasizing the need for timely detection and management of Alzheimer's disease

INDIANAPOLIS, July 12, 2017 /CNW/ -- Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) today announced it will present findings from more than 40 research studies at the upcoming Alzheimer's Association International Conference® 2017 (AAIC® 2017) in London, United Kingdom, July 16 - 20. The data highlight Lilly's broad Alzheimer's pipeline, including potential treatments and diagnostics in various stages of clinical development, in addition to health outcomes data on use of healthcare resources prior to an Alzheimer's disease diagnosis.

"Research shows that Alzheimer's disease begins to develop years before life-impacting symptoms appear. To effectively fight the disease, people with Alzheimer's, their caregivers and their doctors need more productive conversations sooner, with the goal to recognize and diagnose as early as possible," said Phyllis Ferrell, vice president, Global Alzheimer's Disease Platform Team. "We remain committed to finding solutions for Alzheimer's disease and believe promising new therapies are on the horizon."

Of particular interest is one oral presentation which may help inform the future care of Alzheimer's disease:

About Alzheimer's Disease
Alzheimer's disease is a fatal illness that causes progressive decline in memory and other aspects of cognition. Dementia due to Alzheimer's is the most common form of dementia, accounting for 60 to 80 percent of all cases.i,ii There are currently an estimated 47 million people living with dementia around the world,iii with numbers expected to increase to nearly 75 million by 2030 and 132 million by 2050.iv  Almost 10 million new cases of dementia are diagnosed each year worldwide, implying one new case every 3.2 seconds.v The current annual societal and economic cost of dementia is estimated at more than $800 billion and it is expected to become a trillion dollar disease by 2018.vi
