Dementia incidence decreases over time among Framingham Heart Study participants

February 10, 2016

Incidence of dementia significantly decreased over time among participants in the Framingham Heart Study, according to recent findings.

“As the average life expectancy increases, the prevalence of dementia and associated monetary costs are expected to increase exponentially. A few studies have suggested that the age-specific incidence of dementia (ie, the risk of dementia at any specific age) might be decreasing, but these studies either have shown a trend that failed to reach significance or have relied on comparisons of prevalence data that were ascertained at multiple time points,” Claudia L. Satizabal, PhD, of Boston University School of Medicine, and colleagues wrote.
