Population of older adults in Asia, and particularly in China is increasing rapidly. Older population are at increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) and other dementias. Soon, the Chinese population with AD will represent almost half of the world’s AD population. There is a desperate need of disease modifying therapies to delay or slow the progression of AD, to tackle this emerging healthcare emergency. In this context, the first CTAD Asia-China conference was held in China to bring together Western and Asian leaders in AD. This meeting focused largely on how to develop successful trials in China, utilizing past experiences from the West.
