The health care insurance system of the Alzheimer disease in Japan
By having trouble with one's Alzheimer, the tragedy may be brought about with a household and relatives. In Japan, the news of "mother murder by an Alzheimer disease" was introduced to Asahi Shimbun in recent years.
In recent years, symptoms develop in middle-aged prime and the Juntendo University School-of-Medicine psychological-medicine classroom where the impact on office or a household observed a serious juvenilis Alzheimer disease will establish special outpatient departments for the first time at home from April, Heisei 11. Professor Arai of this size is saying, "I would be for diagnosing at an early stage and starting treatment, and would like to support from the field of medicine, a wellbeing, and a caregiving on the basis of an early diagnosis and treatment also in an Alzheimer disease."
As a medical system supporting the patient of an Alzheimer disease, there are an attend health care cost public expenditure burden system, a mental disability health-and-welfare notebook, etc. From a first-medical-examination day, the medical certificate for a mental disability health-and-welfare notebook application can be indicated only after it passes six months or more.
The present condition of an Alzheimer

The patient of an Alzheimer disease of Japan is said to be estimated 1 million people. An Alzheimer disease is a typical disease of the dementia on a par with cerebrovascular disease, such as cerebral infarction.
In Japan, there are many instances to an elderly for which the symptoms (his teens, his twenties, and his 30's) of the Alzheimer were checked as a juvenilis Alzheimer in recent years although it was sick, so that 20 - 65 or older-year persons are told that one person shows the symptoms of an Alzheimer. The juvenilis Alzheimer disease of 40 sets and 50 sets of primes is increasing. The case where symptoms develop at the age of less than 65 is a "juvenilis Alzheimer." in recent years, the dementia (Alzheimer) of youngs aged from 18 to 64 is especially increasing -- it says.
100,000 people are said to be although there is no exact statistics of the patient load of a juvenilis Alzheimer. About 30 percent of the young dementia patients put at around 100,000 people is considered to be an Alzheimer disease. It is said in the American that the incidence of an Alzheimer disease is high. As for this, the impact of a prandial is also called source. As a celebrity, it announced officially that former President Reagan was suffering from an Alzheimer disease for the sickness by the letter in its own hand on November 5, 1994.

"-- the sick notability of President Kunio Takami of meeting" (a secretariat and Kyoto, Japanese Alzheimer's Association) of the household who holds was low, and dementia also had a prejudice and discrimination at the time of ". It was estimated that the opportunity which anyone can become that a recognize that it is sick needed to be circulated and you did not need to hide was born by the presidential publish."

The source and symptoms of the main Alzheimer diseases are based on atrophy of the senile plaque by beta amyloid, and a brain. However, although atrophy of the cerebral hippocampus is made into the remark useful to diagnosis of an Alzheimer disease (AD), it is not clear whether it is specific. Precises, such as a work of an Alzheimer disease, a source, the present condition, are given to a below-mentioned. Many Alzheimer diseases to a women are seen. Since there are many Alzheimer diseases among the womens of a postmenopausal, the postmenopausal and the therapy which fills up the estrogen of a female hormone are also explored.
However, in the case of a juvenilis Alzheimer, since there is also a case by inheritance, it needs to keep in mind that the direction of Alzheimer-type dementia stays as a relative. It seems that it is good to receive forgetfulness dock and a medical checkup of the brain immediately when you think that it is as uneasy as possible. Since the subjective symptom is thin, there is a case of which it is notified that it is an Alzheimer for the first time in it, seeing a cerebral radiogram by a medical checkup of the brain by recommendation from a household in the case of a juvenilis. Moreover, the trial which attaches diagnosis of an Alzheimer disease in the status of calling it "mild cognitive impairment" (MCI) attracts attention.
As a causative agent of an Alzheimer, a probability that protein called p25 was participating in the onset of an Alzheimer disease was reported by the group of Harvard University. Moreover, it says for an unusual substance called the amyloid beta protein to accumulate in a brain, and for a neurocyte to become extinct. As for this, the team of Professor Matsuki and others of the University of Tokyo postgraduate-school pharmaceutical-sciences system postgraduate school traced that beta amyloid of an intracranially had barred the signal transduction between neurocytes in 2002.
