Several studies presented at the 2018 Alzheimer's Association International Conferenc  focused on how Alzheimer’s disease manifests in women.  HNRP investigator Erin Sundermann reported on how women may be diagnosed with Alzheimer’s later in disease course than men due to superior verbal performance that survives into the early stages of disease.  Women’s verbal compensation strategies on diagnostic tests may cause a delay in treatment.  Sex-specific cut scores could enable women to access treatment earlier and improve disease progression.
