What Causes Alzheimer's?

Unexplainable

Overview

In 2021, there were more than six million Americans suffering from Alzheimer's, a disease that causes brain tissue destruction and memory loss. Researchers have been searching for the causes and testing treatments for this disease for decades. So why is a cure still so elusive to scientists and drug developers?

The Unexplainable podcast explores the unknowns in science. In this September 2021 episode, host Noam Hassenfeld engages expert scientists researching Alzheimer's to find out about the scientific and pharmaceutical landscape surrounding this disease.

Experts and reporters explain the prevailing hypothesis behind the causes of the disease, outlining why other theories have been sidelined and what the implications are for drug development and patients living with Alzheimer's.

"We have put all our eggs in the basket of the amyloid hypothesis. And that means we're not putting energy into looking at anything else."
