Alzheimer Project

JAMA. 2011;305(6):553. doi:10.1001/jama.2011.94

Legislation designed to improve federal research and clinical programs related to Alzheimer disease was signed into law January 4 by President Barack Obama. The bill was passed unanimously by both chambers of Congress in December.

The National Alzheimer's Project Act (S 3036 [http://tiny.cc/tkc5n]), which does not authorize more money for Alzheimer disease research and clinical care, will be run by the Department of Health and Human Services and requires the agency's secretary to create and maintain an integrated national plan to “overcome” Alzheimer disease. The secretary will also provide information and coordinate Alzheimer disease research and services to patients across all federal agencies and accelerate the development of treatments that would prevent, halt, or reverse the course of the disease.
