Abstract

Economic analyses of geriatric syn dromes are seldom performed. However, demographic and epidemiological imperatives have led to significant interestin the evaluation of AD-related costs. Over 300 papers devoted to economicconsiderations of Alzheimer's disease have been published in peer-reviewedjournals, within the last five years. In these papers, the chosen perspective (costs to society or to specific payers) is important. Analytical methods are still evolving and re main complex. Unresolved methodological issueswill need to be addressed to further our understanding of long-term economic consequences. At present, it is clear that diagnostic and drug costs arelow compared to the major cost of institutionalization. Thus, directing efforts at early diagnosis and delaying nursing home placement are two key cost-containment interventions. In this respect, the need to support informalcare should not be underestimated. (C) 2001, Editrice Kurtis.
