Prevalence and economic burden of dementia
Dementia describes a variety of brain disorders which progressively lead to brain damage, and cause a gradual deterioration of the individual's functional capacity and social relations. Alzheimer's disease is the most common form of dementia, representing about 60% to 80% of cases. Currently, there is no treatment that can halt dementia, but pharmaceutical drugs and other interventions can slow the progression of the disease.
